I think the F80/82 will priced just a tad bit higher than the E9x but that there will be a lot more options available to choose from and M Performance parts to buy

I got some wood for that fire!

How about a "turbo compounding" setup where a turbo drives the crank like they are implementing in F1?

I know it probably won't, but I'm really hoping it makes at least 450hp

And I don't think BMW had ever made a v6. Who would dare suggest such blasphemy.

Can anyone speak to the 4GC getting the B68 v6?

I wonder what other cars it will make it into or if its for the UKL chassis as well

I think the debate now is power to weight ratio, just how much carbon fiber is in it, will it have the 8 M-DCT or 7 as suggested before, electric third turbo? and will it smoke a carrera s or C7 vette. Oh and will they offer AWD for icier climates.

And hopefully it comes with ethanol resistant injectors and hpfp
Highly doubt it would out run c7 or 991 s. But m3 is a m3. If perf figures were all about it, nobody wouldve bought e9x, since boss302 mustang could out run it on the track.
Also if you need awd for climate or extra safety, go get audi. Missing the whole point on M cars..

Does the i8 have an electrical turbo? If so I've missed that information. Any link? I thought it was just a variant of the usual twin scroll turbo used in the N55 and N20?

I don't really care (or as it was said in Gone with the Wind ... Frankly dear I don't give a damn).

I'll be keeping my ///M3 for quite some spell ... like for ever

No current magazine says the truth.
