Latest Automobile Article

Just read the last M4 article in Automobile magazine. I'm a bit confused with the response of Friedrich Nitschke.

"There has even been speculation that the cars would feature V-6 power. "Over my dead body," says Friedrich Nitschke, head of the M division. Wild rumors also spoke of a 3.2-liter straight six and three or four turbos.

What does he mean? Is he being literal since BMW makes I6's?

What other engine could be in the new M4?

what he's saying is new m4 having v6 is as ridiculus as it having 4 turbos. its pretty much wide spread that it will have I6 layout at this point.

Ok. That's what I thought. It just struck me as weird why the interviewer would ask that question. Thanks.
