Its tough because developing a new platform usually leads to that car being a loss leader. It will showcase what a company can do but will not make money. BMW isnt built/run like that.
You make good points. I'd love to see BMW do it but I believe that they're too small of a company, especially compared to Audi and Porsche, which are part of the huge VW Group.

Personally, I would be more interested to see a super M6, something similar to the price/performance of the SL65 Black Series.

I know that I as a customer would love to have a supercar wearing an M badge, M3s or M6s arent that special and cool, they just lack the looks to steal eyes from a ferrari or a lambo, if mercedes and audis are doing it, why cant we?
if you want perfection buy a mercedes, or marry an accountant

BMW needs a supercar. A new hero to crush the R8 and those higher end AMG models. The M3 is a great performance car for the money, no doubt about it...but in my eyes, it doesnt hold a candle to the R8 and those higher end AMG series. Heck even the m6 and m5 arent even close

I really want this to happen. Give it a screaming N/A V10 600hp and have a limited production run.

It is coming now whatever. Audi and Mercedes can't see how healthy the BMW X6 sales are, everybody thought it would be a flop, but it is a top selling SUV. Now Audi and Mercedes are coming with Q6 and MLC. The same way BMW can't see how succesful in sales and image the R8 is. BMW did not need such a car, but after the R8, this is very important to boost the lost image mainly. Even Lexus built a supercar, yes very expensive, but better than GT-R, ZR1, Gallardo, R8, SLS AMG, 911's, MP4-12C, 458 Italia, 599 GTO.
