Another example with an enthusiastic community due to its high performance and engineering qualities is the M3 series of BMW, on which the following design work has been done for learning, inspiring and joyful purposes.
The simple highlight drawing shows how the volume and graphic proportions of the cars evolved. This practice made it possible to estimate how the next model should look like. (This illustration has been drawn during 2012, one year before the F32 was released in October 2013.)
