A moment of silence please

As we all know the NA M engine era has passed, as the e92 has ended production.
Granted the e93 continues.
But
For most of us this is the end
A moment if you please

I thought the era ended with the E36? Oh wait.....or was it the E46? Ohhhh, now it's the E9X. It seems like there's always and end to an era.

The last natural aspirated engine.. the last m3 coupe, such a beauty, such a beast. this car is something to die for. That S65 engine is like crack. The redline to 8300, idgaf what haters gunna say but the E92 M3 is a masterpiece

I am just glad they are bringing back the M3 sedan. There's always a silver lining.

Just glad I got mine. Can't think of another car I'd rather have right now.

At this point, I'm hoping to have the most fun possible racking up 200k+ miles, then make her a barely street-legal track car, and maybe find a well-kept 2011 E90 ZCP to take over daily duties... A boy can dream, right?

I am sure in 5 years we will have a similar thread about the F80/82 when BMW decides to go 4 banger or all electric on the next generation M cars....

End of and era on internal combustion engines etc etc....

no one said this will be the last N/A M engine, just like the E46 M3 was not the "last" inline 6

I am on the hunt for a perfect 2011 E90 ZCP. I was even going to buy a 2013 Java Green for $65k but they said it's sold. Still searching but the number of fish in the sea has greatly diminished. I remember an year or two ago I'd go on Cars.com and find around 250 E90 M3's for sale. Right now there's only 77 and none are good enough examples. It seems like no one wants to sell the last of a dying breed of sports car and I don't blame them.
