So it will have negative mass? Doesn't this also mean it will be invisible and travel faster than the speed of light?

I am having a difficult time understanding why there is still discussion of a V6.

One revolutionary aspect of the car will be the high volumetric efficiency of the engine. Another will be the use of carbon fiber to improve weight by ~200 lbs. vs. the current car. It is all but entirely inconceivable that they will drop weight by ~500 lbs. as compared to the E90 M3. It just doesn't stand up to sound reason.
