Uncovered Trademarks Hint That More BMW M Cars Are Coming

BMW has filed for numerous trademarks, hinting more hot M model variants are under development.

Like the “CS” trademarks filed late last year, BMW is protecting the “CSL” nameplate for all its current and future M models. The German automaker has filed trademarks for M1 CSL through M8 CSL.

The CSL nameplate has a bit of history for the brand, namely on the 3.0 CSL that was a homologation special built to make the car eligible for racing. There was also a BMW M3 CSL model during the E46 generation packing plenty of race-inspired parts.

Short for “Coupe Sport Lightweight,” the CSL moniker is a bit of a misnomer if BMW ends up using it on the sedan models. But at this point, BMW isn’t shy about pushing out as many model variants as possible, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see it being used across the range.
