I spoke to Bill Auberlen this past Saturday at the Long Beach Grand Prix and he told me that since the M3 is going to be discontinued this year BMW does not want to race it as a factory supported car.

I would not be surprised if the Z4M showed up some time soon with a V8 in it.

THIS.

The Z4M could be produced in sufficiently low volume to keep the S65 alive without being too detrimental to BMW's CAFE target (and help M meet GTE homologation requirements without bending the rules).

I'll be there with either the M3 'vert or the X5m.
