Predictions on the M3's 0-60 performance?

Say, pit it against the current 996 Turbo...

The current 996's weight is 3480 lbs. with 415 bhp, 0-60 in 4.1 secs.

So my shoot-from-the-hip guess is Bangle's M3 would probably weigh around 300 lbs. lighter (guessing based on the 330i's weight of 3362 lbs. and the amount of CFRP the M3 will probably utilize). And with 400 bhp, this could come close, but not beat, the 0-60 of the 996 since it's 4WD and the M3 most likely won't be.

My prediction on the 0-60: somewhere between 4.1 and 4.4 seconds.

Anybody has a different prediction?

Anybody more of a nerd than I am?
It'll be one hell of a ride...
