BMW M3 Touring in the works for 2015 Frankfurt motor show

BMW is reportedly developing a wagon/estate variant of the M3 sedan to be revealed at this year's Frankfurt Motorshow in September. According to Slovenian publication, Avto Magazin, the M3 Touring is on track to be unveiled in near production-ready form - similar to the way the F10 M5 Concept and F82 M4 Concept models were. The move makes sense, giving BMW a direct challenger to the Mercedes-Benz C63 Estate and Audi RS4 Avant.
