BMW Sports Cars: Popular Models


The BMW M2 is the high-performance variant of the 2 Series coupe. For the 2019 model year, the BMW M2 boasts a turbocharged 3.0L inline six-cylinder engine based on the larger M3 and M4 sports cars. Paired with a standard six-speed manual transmission or an optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, you can expect a healthy 405 hp and 406 lb. ft of torque.


The BMW M3 is the quintessential sports car, giving the normally luxury-oriented 3 Series coupe sharper handling, better braking, and more potent acceleration. The 2018 model features a powerful turbocharged 3.0L inline six-cylinder engine with 425 hp available. Power flows to the rear wheels with the help of a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Standard features include LED headlights, adaptive damping, navigation and keyless entry and ignition. As of the 2014 model year, the BMW M3 was sedan-only.


Dating back to the 2014 model year, the BMW M4 is the coupe counterpart to the M3 sedan. The M4 offers the same basic features of the BMW M3 sedan.


The BMW M5 is a four-door sedan that easily holds the sports car mantle, thanks in large part to its twin-turbocharged 4.4L V8 engine. Paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, the 600-hp M5 can easily go from zero to 60 in 3.2 seconds. The available M5 Competition package adds a firmer suspension and 17 additional hp, in addition to several weight-shaving features.

If you can live without the cutting-edge performance of the M5, the M550i xDrive offers a less frenetic alternative. The 2018 BMW M550i xDrive borrows the M5’s boisterous V8, but with a softer tune that nets you 456 hp. The M550i xDrive also does away with the Active M Differential in favor of rear-biased all-wheel drive.


If you’re looking for a pure sports car with classic roadster looks, you can’t go wrong with the BMW Z4. The second-generation model, made from 2009-2016, features a lightweight retractable hardtop that blurs the line between coupe and convertible. The updated third-generation model debuted in 2019, bringing an extensively refreshed appearance, increased cargo space and a return to the soft top. For 2019, the BMW Z4 relies on a turbocharged 2.0L inline-four rated at 255 hp and mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

BMW i8

The BMW i8 is the marque’s electric sports car offering. The 2019 BMW i8 pairs its 228-hp turbocharged 1.5L three-cylinder engine with a 141-hp electric motor and 11.6-kWh battery, giving it the performance to match its sporty, futuristic looks. The 2019 BMW i8 gets an EPA-estimated 69 combined MPGe (electric + gas) / 27 combined MPG (hybrid mode).1
