I'm pretty skeptical of some line-in-the-sand cutoff at ~300hp. If the market calls for a performance PHEV model making a little more than 300hp, I'm sure there's a reasonable way to achieve that with the current generation vehicles.

Based on what I've read, the impetus for the new platform is lower costs and better packaging for electric models.

I'd guess the answer is "yes". In other words, both will be available. As long as they are still making RWD M*40i 3 Series and 4 Series models (and they are), I don't see why they wouldn't do the same for the 2 Series Coupe. Now, whether the RWD model is available in all regions is a separate question. For example, the RWD M340i sedan isn't available in many countries, and I'd guess the same will hold for the upcoming RWD M440i coupe and convertible.

I suspect that a rwd will be a 6 speed and awd with the ZF8

Once the F2x and F3x end, the B58 + 6MT is almost surely into the history books.

S58 + 6MT is what's left. Once that's gone, it's all done.

I had the current generation M235 (2014), loved it. Replaced it with M340 xdrive which is amazing. New generation M235/240 with same engine will be a beast

Any one around Cambridge MA see what looked like a fully camo'd / red 3 series cruising around today?

I couldn't grab a very good pic, but I have no idea why they would bother with Camo on a 3 series now after it just came out.

B58/S58 and the future G87 M2/M2C (2023): hm, N55/S55 of F87 M2/M2C déjà-vu likelihood or straightaway a detuned S58 of the G80 M3 / G82 M4 ?

I strongly suspect they’ll use the S58 in the G87 from the start because it allows them to go to a single I6 + 6MT configuration that covers everything. In fact, the business case for keeping the manual M cars for a (presumably) final generation was likely built around sharing the same engine/transmission across the three (M2/M3/M4) vehicle programs.
