Good question, seems logical that given that both the M2C and M2CS have the same S55 engine except for the tune which bumps hp on the CS (basically same engine as M4 ZCP), that the M2C MPE should be compatible.

Interestingly the M4 MPE was compatible with both the M4 ZCP & M4CS.

Though, checked with dealer parts departments which claim that the M2C MPE does not appear to be an item available for the M2CS. Could be still too early ..😉

New 911 Turbo S got revealed with a base price of around $205k, which is $13k over the previous Turbo S. Sure more horsepower and torque but more weight to offset the gains. Add another $20k for reasonable options and another $12k or so for taxes and you are looking at around $240k which is what some people pay for houses. Plus Porsche Turbos are known to experience massive depreciation.

Somehow $83.6k for a M2 CS with minimal options (no CCBS) doesn't seem that bad. At least it is smaller, more nimble, and weighs less than the 911 Turbo. Depreciation won't be as bad either due to less supply of CS.

Not a realistic comparison. Also, the M2C weighs more than a 992 Turbo S... The CS is marginally lighter, still going to be heavier than the Turbo S though.

992 Turbo S is going to be around 3,700 pounds. This was reported in the articles from November 2019. About 100 pounds increase over the 991 Turbo S which was 3,600 pounds (3,600 + 100 = 3,700). M2 CS will be lighter than 3,700 pounds. Not by much but still lighter. We know it is smaller.

I know they are not competing cars. But they are cars that interest me, so that's my comparison. I have no interest in Mercedes C63, Audi TTRS, etc. The Cayman GT4 is manual only but is also underpowered to me.

Agreed! My 2019 M2C 6MT weighed 3563 lbs with full tank of gas. M2 CS 6MT should be 50+ lbs (or 100+ lbs w/ CCB) lighter.

F87 M2 instrument cluster evolution: check the rpm red zone + characters font type + ///M logo + "1/min x 1000" location.

Question: did the the May 2017 mystery picture show an early M2 CS instrument cluster, though with higher rpm zone (8K rpm) ?

May 2016: picture of a EURO-spec original M2 instrument cluster (my ex M2):




May 2017: mystery picture of a US-model M2 pre-production black panel instrument cluster (source: here (pictures) and here (brief video clip showing that it ain't a fake picture)):


May 2017: official picture of the EURO-spec M2 LCI black panel instrument cluster:

Looked at in that light yes indeed.
