I am not so sure if I agree with you all the way.

I am with you on the bandwagon that M6 should be lighter and not so large or if it is going to be so large then at least offer more use able rear seat room.

On the other hand I disagree that M6 has no purpose in the market segment. I think it compares real well with fast stylish & sporty GT cars and not pure sports cars/exotics.

M6 compares very well against likes of Aston Martins, Jaguar XKR and XKR-S, MB CL63 AMG, Bentley GT coupe, and Bentley super sport.

It was not intended to be all out performance sports car and was never intended to compete with the likes of Audi R8 or 911 GT3 or GT-R. The R8 is an exotic mid-engine with no rear seats, 911 GT3 is a track machine focus less on luxury and style and ditto for GT-R with its inferior interior fit and finish, luxury and style.

I think M6 can improve in more areas no doubt but take it for what it is a larger, stylish, luxury, sports GT.

I am hoping for all us performance hungry folks BMW gives us an awesome M4.
