Send a BMW 1 Series M Coupe at the M-series models, the six-retire?

Nitschke: The performance model is not sure, since we currently use only one line six-cylinder engines. For the core models I was also not exclude this type of construction, since we have so that an icon in the program. Anyway, I think a straight six cylinder for more likely than a V6 engine.
I'm sure there's plenty lost in translation, but it sounds like Nitschke is not confirming the use of a turbo I4 in the next 1M/M2 and is hinting that a turbo-6 is still a possibility.

Nitschke: For the new M3, I am fully responsible for Darfur.
Quick, someone call the UN!
