How many of you...

Will buy the F80 M3 instead of the "M4" coupe to keep with tradition and brand name, even if the M4 may potentially perform better?

It's a bit of a silly question. Who buys a car you don't want because it has a they like?

I voted M4, but I do not mean M4 Coupé.

M4 GranCoupé (F84) next to 911 GT3 (991) FTW (yeah dreaming)

I'll buy the coupe. I'll stick an M3 badge on it in protest.

I hope the m4 grancoupe is in the works but we haven't seen a recent mule or testing candidate for a normal 3 grancoupe lately.

All in all it makes sense :

- A range of "classical" sedans turned into supercars (odd numbers) : M5, little sister M3 (and I hope...M7). No carbon fiber roof.
- A range of coupé supercars placed just above the respective "classical" models (even numbers) : M2, M4 & M4GC, M6 & M6GC. Common coupé design cues, issued from the 6 Coupé. Carbon fiber roof at least for M4 and M6 (amongst other special features?)

Or someone could just take the M3 badge and replace the M4 badge if the name is that important.

Off topic, your screen name looks familiar. Have we met before?

Spot on for me too, although I still hope the M3 nameplate sticks with the Coupe for traditions sake.

Don't tell me because of performance reasons. That's just marketing. 99% of
M3 owners won't make a 1/10th second of difference in a circuit lap with or without carbon roof.

Regardless of looks and weight but because the E92 M3 has it and because it would be a nice difference between M sedans and coupés.
