Lexus might be attempt to undercut the next-generation M3, which rumors have suggested will be considerably more expensive. However, a report in August suggested BMW was eyeing a $53,975 price tag for the next M3, which is a small premium over the old model than originally anticipated.
Just read that the new ISF easily avoids the Gas Guzzler Tax due to excellent gas mileage (partly due to their new 8-speed tranny).

I have the feeling the new M3 will have a hefty gas guzzler tax on it (just look at the M5). Yet another couple of $K adding to the final price.
