As much as I want the I6, I could see them definitely making it a I4 power plant.
It makes sense. They can squeeze 350-360hp out if it, make it insane light. And it'll never tread on the F80-82.

I think an M2 deserves to exist and if ever so that's where my move is going. As long as it's not some stupid ridiculous price tag like 60k msrp...
