There won't be both an M4 coupe and M3 coupe. The 3 Series coupe will now be called the "4 Series," so the M3 coupe will now be called the "M4."
The only reason this doesn't happen is if the BMW board decides to break with its naming convention and make an surprising exception in naming the upcoming F82 as the M3 coupe (instead of "M4").
