It may not be justified to have 2more mpg and loose a high revving V8 masterpiece.. That's my whole point.

Agreed on M3 is not a sports car.
24? Last time I looked it was 14/20?

so let me get this straight...

1. the sedan will be a 3 series
2. the coupe will be a 4 series
3. the coupe will be a m3 even though it's a 4 series
4. there is no sedan m3...but magically there it is

i'm confused

Here is a rare pre-production image of the new F30 M3 electrical turbo in BMW development!! It has been reported that these will be mounted directly on the cold air intake and the massive two stage electrical switch will be connected directly via cable to the gas pedal! Above 3/4 WOT the cable will actuate first stage 1, then later at WOT stage 2 boost.

Looks good but IMO the rear tires look too small.

Thinking of the "electric turbo" as a supercharger, since that's really what it is, will make your head hurt less.

And 24mpg??? Mine never broke 15.

So you are telling me if you could push a car as hard as you want both being equal in performance, one gets 10mpg and one gets 30mpg you would say hmmm doesnt matter to me which one I have.

The performance is the end all of what you want out of an M3, but it is also nice to have fuel economy as well.

Remember the M3 is not a full on sports car, its also a DD for many people as well as it seats 4 with a large trunk.
+1 Completely agree.

I like the tri turbo concept since it should produce gobs of torque at low RPM and gobs of power at high rpm. The only sound I care about is the sound of fast. Let's hope for no gas guzzler tax on this one.

I just hope that it looks better once the camo comes off. This thing looks incredibly boring.

I wonder if the tri turbo turns out to be a twin scroll turbo plus an electric "turbo". After all, BMW calls the system "twin power turbo" now without regard to how many turbochargers are in use.

So, actually a twin-turbo, with an electric supercharger.

The funny thing is i knew a guy that hooked a gas powered leafblower up to the intake of an old junker chevy Malibu. It did a burnout all the way down the street...something blew or melted soon thereafter....
