According a supposedly posting on Bimmerpost by a Las Vegas BMW dealer employee, the M4 GTS is now figuring in the US order list of BMW magically. This would potentially mean though unconfirmed by BMW USA, buyers who flock Pebble Beach to witness premiers of M4 GTS can now stock one at their garage too somewhere in 2016.
The M4 GTS is now coming to the shores of USA, not like the 2011 M3 GTS which were hand-built 150 units and orange flamethrowers with a roll cage. This has to happen because the competition already has them all over the place such as the Porsche Cayman GT4, Mercedes AMG C63 Black Edition Coupe, and Jaguar F-Type SVR. Another possible rival will be the Shelby GT350R.
A screenshot posted at the Bimmerpost claims that the earliest model for the US will be built in April 2016 which would transpire into customers getting their deliveries in summer. BMW has been suggesting a mighty M for the US since 2013 February, which we assume to be a corporate motive than a demand churning dealer hope.
A five-point harness and roll cage is not what you would sell in the US for the road, so we would expect the BMW to cook the GTS medium rare than serving it raw. Probably water cooling by injection would be introduced to cool the intake charge, a wing resembling the high-flying M4 MotoGP speed car, meatier and quicker everything, and, of course, a power steering operated electrically which was quite an irritant in the M3 we rode long term.
Last November we asked Carsten Pries how they are going to improve the steering of M, he told that the present steering is quite satisfactory to the customers demand. We will call his bluff as the M4 GTS is already on the way, and hope M would stitch the GTS with polycarbonate like it did four years back and also do away with the audio generated engine noise.
