BMW may at last be preparing to deliver a direct rival to Mercedes-AMG’s C 63 Estate and the Audi RS 4 Avant, if a new report is to be believed.

Traditionally, the midsized M3 hero has been offered exclusively in sedan and two-door forms. And, since the launch of the 4 Series, the M3 ‘range’ has shrunk to a sedan-only arrangement.

But, while past M3 models have left BMW’s German rivals to play at the midsized performance wagon game on their own, that could soon change.

According to Slovenia’s Avto Magazin, a new M3 Touring wagon will make its first appearance at September’s Frankfurt Motor Show.

The first-ever M3 wagon would likely debut first as a near production-ready concept, before going on to a market launch in 2016.

The authenticity of the Avto report is unclear, however, and the absence of any wagonised M3 prototypes in the weekly rounds of spy photos suggest it may instead be a magazine-selling flight of fancy.

(As an avowed wagon nut, this writer will have a go at holding his breath and seeing if anything more than a whopping migraine comes from it.)

Still, BMW has shown it is not averse to the idea of an M3 wagon, having already developed a prototype version back in the E46 days.

Nothing ever came of that one, but if an M3 Touring is again on the menu - no doubt powered by the new M3’s 317kW/550Nm twin-turbo six - we should know more in the next few months.
