A screenshot from a computer at a BMW dealer in United States reveals the date when M2 Coupe production will kick off.

We've known for quite some time that BMW will start M2 Coupe production in November for the European market and now it seems the US-spec version will be available sooner than expected. Based on the attached internal build sheet, it will hit the assembly line in the same month as its European sibling, even though previous reports were indicating the North American version would enter production phase in March 2016.

The BMW M2 Coupe will likely receive its world premiere in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show but an online reveal is probably scheduled for August. It will come with an uprated 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine developing somewhere in the region of 380 HP (279 kW), thus making it substantially more powerful than the current range-topper, the 326 HP M235i Coupe.
