F30 M3 engine based on N55?

I know that BMW confirmed that the next M3 will be using a twin-turbo six cylinder engine. But I distinctly remember that engine being a V6.

Now Scott26 is saying that the F30 M3 will be using a variant of the N55, which is a single-turbo, and most interestingly, straight-6. (scroll down to the section entitled "N54 Engine Confirmed (per Scott26):" in the first post)
