Last week, BMW unveiled its 4 Series M Performance Kit, showing off that it plans to offer to 4 Series buyers looking for accessories rather than investing in the future M4 model.

But for those that can’t accept the middle ground that the M Performance Kits have to offer, the German automaker will be debuting its M4 Concept at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance next month in California. The concept is expected to resemble a near-production vehicle, as the official M4 coupe and M3 sedan is expected to make their debuts at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.

According to Klaus Froehlich, BMW Senior Vice President Brand and Product Strategies BMW Group, the new M4 will use 80-percent different parts compared to its 4 Series counterpart, including an all-new powerplant, a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, and entirely new suspension. And of course, the M4 will go on a strict diet thanks to plenty of carbon fiber on its body.

As for those hoping for an all-wheel-drive M4, it’s not going to happen due to the additional weight of BMW’s xDrive system.
