Not sure if that was tongue-in-cheek or what. If not, check out the post by SCOTT linked by the OP - he mentions 3 cyl and 4 cyl engines (which makes sense given this will be a subcompact built on a platform shared with Mini).

Even so, Volvo has the transverse I6 in the S60 and while that is no compact, its no where near 15 feet wide either. That said, I don't think BMW will be building a FWD I6 powered car any time soon, if ever..
