Default Rumor: BMW to build a 4 Cylinder twin-turbo engine

We have been hearing from two independent sources that BMW is going to build a 4-Cylinder High Rev (11,000 rev limiter) engine, hoping for about 220-260 horsepower. The 4-Cylinder will be offered in 2 stages with and without twin-turbos.
We hear that the new engine will be exclusive for the 1 Series to start, but may go to a 3 coupe, but not the sedan. Release date of 2010 is what we hear they are shooting for. Parts and pieces (suppliers) are being scouted now.
Continuing down the rumors path, same sources indicate that a quad-turbo 4-Cylinder might be in works as well.
Will the recently announced 1 Series and 3 Series tii, feature these new engines sometimes down the road? Well, time will tell.

Quite hoenstly they need to. the 1 series has nothing special to it, which is why it seems like there isn't an overall buzz about the car anymore.

So the twin-turbo 6-cyl is too boring for you? lol cmon now I think the car has great potential, esp. at a price of only ~$30k. The looks may not be for everyone, but you sure are getting some bang for your buck!

woah hold on a second. I never said it was too boring for me, and I have never said I don't like the 1 series. It just seems the general opinion of the 1 series is that it isn't anything spectacular, whereas when it was announced people were stoked.

I'm simply saying giving it a different, unique engine would spark more interest in it.

This is true. And it would be cool see something truly unique put into it, but you have to wonder what the market would be like for a quad-turbo 4-cyl. lol

Only time will tell...
