Spy photographers have spotted what looks to be a more track-focused version of the BMW M4 GTS. Could this mean the pinnacle of the M4 range will be getting an upgrade soon?

The current BMW M4 GTS is just about as hardcore as a car can get without sticking a set of slicks on it and entering it in a race series. It seems BMW has more in mind for the GTS as these new spy shots show a more hardcore version could be on the way.
These images show an M4 GTS with larger front air intakes and an even higher and bigger rear wing. There also appears to be a bootlid spoiler as well, likely further improving the downforce of the new model. The front also features canards or dive planes on the side adding to front-end downforce. There's also downforce aids along the side skirts and a proper, race car spec rear diffuser.
It's not clear what BMW plans to do with a car this hardcore as it would be unbearable to drive on road and it already has a GT3 race car in the form of the M8 GTE. Further developments will no doubt shed more light on this new development.
