Model overview

The BMW M3 is a four-door high-performance variant of the BMW 3 Series, produced by BMW's sports division, BMW M GmbH. M3 models have been created across every generation of 3 Series since the E30 M3 debuted in 1986.

The original model was available in a coupé, with a convertible added shortly after. As 2014, the M3 has been entirely designed in the sedan body style, because of the coupé and convertible models being rebranded as the 4 Series series, offering the high-performance variant the M4.
