Any concrete info on future M3 engines?

Seems I read here last week we should get some confirmation on the final engine for the 201? M3 this week. Am I dreaming?

I'm probably going to order another M3 this fall anyway, just wondering? Thanks.

No way we will hear about the new engine for the F32 M3 this week. It will be a variation on the upcoming X3M engine, a turbo 6cyl.

3.3 L V6 triple turbo. It will be the 4.4L that is going into the F10 M5 with 2 cylinders chopped off basically.

speculations; nothing is concrete.
ANd no, BMW will not use a V6; this theory was thought of, and never made it into production.

Even if it were confirmed that the F32 M3 will get a 500hp TT V8, you'd be foolish to put off purchasing until its release. It won't be here for more than three years. In that time you could have leased and driven an E9x M3, and been ready to upgrade.

That's just one theory. It happens to be the least likey of the two prevailing possibilities (I6 3.0-3.2L or V6 3.3L ), while also being the one most often erroneously suggested by media outlets as having been confirmed by BMW.

The NSX had a V6.

I wasn't going to wait for the next edition. The choice would only be whether it's going to be an M3 or a 335is. I've had 4 M3's now, sold my '09 last year and have been missing a M for the past year.

My wife drives a 135i convertible, and I get in once in awhile and play around. But it's not an M3.

That would make it a 90 degree V6 with offset crank pins to allow for even firing. That's been tried by a few North American manufactures and largely abandoned.

I can't see BMW going for something that inelegant. V6 engines should really be 60 degrees but then it couldn't be made on the same machining equipment..

Ok, cool. I guess I still don't see how that's a factor, but that's not important right now. Regardless of whether the next one has a 1.6L I4 hybrid, a 600hp V12 turbo, or something in between, you should pick the E92 M3 today and skip the 335is.

V6 90 can be better than V6 60, if done properly.

This seems to be the leading story so far.

Still hoping for a variation of the marvelous S65 but hopes are fading.

I don't see concrete being used by BMW but I'm no expert on material science.
