I am hopeful they will not destroy the next M3, but if they do it won't happen again.
Explain yourself. The new S4 has already ditched the V8 in favor of a supercharged V6 and AMG already produces many forced induction vehicles. I don't know off the top of my head but haven't they said the next engine in the C Class is going to be forced induction of some kind? I guess it depends on what you consider the defining characteristics of a BMW but as far as engines go I don't think either of those two are going to make a high-revving NA motor anytime soon. If it is dynamics you're thinking of, well, I don't think anyone's worried about how the next gen M3 is going to handle.
