I have heard this from several sources that the M3 being changed is still being debated and that it more than likely will not change. The racing history has too much cache and value; not to mention the amount of money BMW has spent to relaunch into DTM with the M3 DTM, they are not going to redo all that when the car gets a redesign and change its name...
To prepare for this inevitability. The BMW Motorsport division are spending a lot of time with the M3 prototypes in chance of the next M3 Sedan being BMW's next DTM car.
Rumours in Munich point to a race prepared launch livery M3 DTM appearing on stage @ IAA Frankfurt , September along with the production car.
