Even though higher model numbers most often have more power than the lower model numbers this is a solid counterpoint that I know but did not have in the forefront of my mind when thinking about possible M3/M4 scenarios.

The rumors of the new M3 having close/similar power to the outgoing model along with the observation that BMW WILL be charging substantially more for the M4 over the M3 just has me thinking. For reference the M6 is about $16k more than the M5 (and again almost for sure costs less to manufacture)
