It's just bastardizing the original intent and M breed. Do you think the same person is cross shopping an M6 or an SL Benz with even an M3? If they are they are seriously confused on what they hell they want. IMO a former M3 owner that is now looking at An M6 is someone that wants something "more expensive" but doesn't want the driving involvement of something like a 911 but wants an M badge.
Porsche's beached whale the Panamera turbo 4s has some canyon carving abilities with some impressive track times (better than the 1M's,M3).
It can be done.
