Whats the point of M4

So im at the dealership, getting serviced, and my buddy works there, and i havent driven the m4 so we go on a little ride, and i wont lie amazing car, i loved the sound, feel, and compactness of it. All that car! for not a whole lot of money, but one question that kept coming up, is whats the point?


like honestly m3 m5 m6 makes perfect sense, if were making a 4 may as well make 7 and bring back the m8.

Of course most of the people at the dealership dont know history, just enough to make a sale so my friend wasnt very helpful.

so anyone know the origin of the m4? or was it kinda like a why not idea?

because honestly the market does not demand an m4 never has and never will.

The car is nothing new... BMW just split the M3 couple and sedan into different models.

SALES!

Initially BMW was going to have all 4 dr sedans odd numbers (3,5,7) and all 2 dr sedans even numbers (4,6). I suspect that the M-B 4dr "coupe" and the Audi 7 convinced them to change that in order to compete. Thus we have the BMW 3 Coupe and the 6 Grand Coupe. They now have a lotta models to sell, and are selling them.

It's a coupe version of the M3? The naming is just for marketing purpose I believe. On the plus side it will make searching for used cars much easier in the future!
