I can't see how BMW will ever be able to turn the M6 into a true supercar, it would need to shed a shit load of weight and gain some seriously wide rubber at the rear to give it the kind of traction that it's power is crying out for.
No one is denying it's hellish quick but the world is full of point and squirt machines and BMW should be capable of so much more.
Considering the M6's origin - a fat luxury GT - I think BMW's capability is perfectly fine.
They haven't had a single chance (in recent history) to make a from-the-ground-up performance vehicle yet.
