E60 M5 had 500 HP and the E92 has ~420HP. Keeping the 70-80HP gap between the M5 and M3, if the F10 M5 weighs in at ~600HP, I can see the F30 M3 putting down ~490-500HP. To get that from a I6 will truly be an marvel of german engineering. More likely it would be a twin turbo V8. In that respect, I hope they keep the current S63 engine and modify it vs lets say shoving the engine from the 550i in an M3 body (hey they did it with the 1M in taking the Z4 N54 engine!)

A twin turbo V6? On paper, it works for Nissan GTR, but we are BMW fans, not Nissan fans. The workhorse I6 is what brought us to this flame. Don't cheat us mid flight!
I couldn't have said it better!
