It's all speculation either way, but if you think about it, a V8 i8 really makes no sense whatsoever. The whole point of the "i" brand is greener vehicles (or, if you are suitably skeptical, the mere impression of greener vehicles ). A V8 does not fit. A V8 supercar under the main BMW brand makes sense (such as perhaps an 8 series, or M8, or M1 or Z8, etc), but such a car has proven to be nothing more than mere myth thus far. And even if it does exist in some form, almost certainly there is nothing far enough along in development to lend itself to parts sharing with an F32 M3.
