The 2009 CTS-V (there is not going to be a 2008 CTS-V) is probably going to debut with 500hp.

Will be a hot car if it ever shows up here, but will probably be more in the $80K realm. And maybe it's just me, but I get tired of hearing about this imminent arrival of the Skyline.

Latest word is that the RS5 is going to use an NA V8. Also, the M3 and RS6 do not compete.

The AMG C63 Merc. is the competitor that interests me most. Mercedes seems to be shifting a little more towards the BMW philosophy with their latest AMG cars. There's also the Lexus IS-F but it'll probably come in overweight and lean towards the luxury side.

I didn't know there was an official Nordschliefe time for the E92 M3. I believe the only time posted for the new M3 is very preliminary and unofficial.
