The 2002 joined BMW’s model stable for 1968 and lasted through 1976. By 1973, the 2002 came in its best-loved shape, with the rounded taillamps and heavier, safety-mandated bumpers that didn’t detract from the car’s sporty good looks.
Helmut Werner Bönsch, BMW’s director of product planning, and Alex von Falkenhausen, designer of the M10 engine, each had a two-liter engine installed in a 1600-2 for their respective personal uses. When they realized they had both made the same modification to their own cars, they prepared a joint proposal to BMW’s board to manufacture a two-liter version of the 1600-2. At the same time, American importer Max Hoffman asked BMW for a sporting version of the 02 series that could be sold in the United States. The 2.0 engine was sold in two states of tune: the base single-carburetor 2002 producing 101 hp and the dual-carburetor high compression 2002 ti producing 119 hp. The 2002 tii used the fuel-injected (130 hp) engine from the 2000 tii, which resulted in a top speed of 115 mph.
