apparently to rival the -AMG Project One, but it's still looking to expand. The automaker plans to launch 26 M and M Performance models through the end of 2020, reports Autocar.

The additional models will consist of new and revised vehicles, including 11 full M models and 15 softer M Performance cars.

"There is huge potential for growth," M chief Frank van Meel told Autocar. "We are looking at all BMW models to see if we can make an M or M Performance model out of them, although there must be sufficiently large customer demand before we commit."

A new is expected to debut at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. The new model will receive carbon fiber components that should help bring its weight under the recently revealed , which is 110 pounds lighter than the current standard M3. The vehicle will sit on the latest version of the CLAR platform that maximizes the use of aluminum and high-strength steel. Power is expected to increase to around 465 hp, almost 10 percent beyond the current model. Unlike the M5 that offers all-wheel drive, the new M3 is expected to keep its rear-drive setup in order to keep costs and weight down.

BMW is also plotting M variants of the X3, X4, upcoming Z4, and 8 Series. When it comes to M Performance, expect to see all-wheel-drive models including the X2, next year's 3 Series, and the X7. Although not confirmed yet, BMW is currently considering M Performance versions of the 4 Series GT and the second-gen 4 Series Coupe and Cabriolet. According to Autocar, an M-Performance third-gen 1 Series is in the early development stages and could eventually come to production.
