A few days ago, we told you about the fact that all of our hopes and dreams would be shattered by the fact that a BMW M3 Touring was unlikely to be built. I admit to falling love with this car that simply will not exist, a 431 horsepower 406 lb-ft of torque family car with a labrador and small child scaring ability to pull 100mph tyre smoking drifts while visiting the in-laws on weekends.

Well known Rendering artist Theophilus Chin also went right ahead and produced a couple of stunning images presenting the visual potential of such a model.

Despite the fact that both Audi and Mercedes produce estate/avant variants of both the RS4 & the C63, a BMW official has made a statement sadly denying that an M3 touring will ever be built. Speaking to Autovisie, M development chief Carsten Pries stated that an estate car as powerful as this would not have a wide enough appeal for BMW to consider greenlighting it for production.

This is indeed very sad news for all of us that yearned after such a car, it’s good news for all of the potentially mentally scarred children and Labradors that won’t have to suffer a powerslide in one.

A sad day indeed.
