I guess time will tell... if sales for the next-gen M3 don't live up to expectations and Audi, Mercedes, Lexus, Caddy all continue to have success against the M3 then I wonder if BMW will bring the V8 back?
Consider the E90 328i & F30 328i. BMW went from NA 6cyl to FI 4cyl but performance/potential was dramatically improved. Don't worry, have faith in the new M3
