M POWERplant

It takes something really quite special to de-throne BMWs 3.2-litre, the most successful unit in International Engine of the Year Awards history, behold the 3.6-litre turbo from Porsche. When all the points were counted, this engine finished just four points ahead of the BMW M powerplant, winner of this category for the past six years.
If I were to agree with you we would both be wrong.

Yeah but BMW's new twin turbo motor won overall. This is just in the 3L to 4L category and overall the 3.6TT ranked 3rd behind VW and BMW.

Also, the new M3 engine wansn't tested, so I'd expect E46's engine to be succeeded in its new application by a much newer powerplant. It's called progress.
