The next M3/M4 is going to be a 3.X second car to 60. Why, the current M3 is already low 4's and has pulled an (outlier) 3.9. Lighter and more power with wider and better tires will mean BMW will quote 4.X but real world times will be 3.X. Now that being said I do wish folks would stop obessing about 0-60. It is more of a traction contest than a measure of what a car can really do.
