In 1981, BMW unveiled the M1, and it quickly rose to the top of the ranks as far as luxury automotive enthusiasts were concerned. Even now, more than 30 years later, it’s still remembered fondly as one of the best model cars put out by the legendary BMW brand. Knowing that, it’s easy to see why new rumors of a successor to the M1 are getting car fans everywhere excited.

According to the rumors, the BMW M8 is on its way to production, provided that everyone on the corporate side can agree that it’s a step in the right direction for the company. And with features like a 625 horsepower twin-turbo V10 engine inside the same carbon fiber and aluminum platform as the BMW i8, why wouldn’t they?
