Why no S65 in the M2?

People keep talking about the M2 being an I6 turbo? Why does it have to be this way? The S65 fit into the 1 Series M coupe just fine, and I think it would be an epic setup, even though I know that it will probably share a de-tuned 2015 M3 engine.

Wouldn't everyone else like to see the car this way?

I like the S65, it sounds great. But in the heavier E90 that I've looked at numerous times, I personally can't get past the 14/20 mileage rating. I know a turbo four or six would be unlikely to get any better mileage at the track, but will likely clobber that rating in daily driving. With fleet mileage standards I think the days of the M5 getting 10/16 and the M3 getting 14/20 are likely to not be seen again.

Are you planning on moving? You know we don't get anything resembling a limited edition in the US, right? M3 CSL, GTS or CRT all came and went without us getting any.

Plus, if anything deserves an S65, it's the E89.

That was an N54, the S54 was the motor in the E46 M3 and E85/E86 M Roadster and M Coupe.

I think V8 is not choice, because hierarchy between other models, bigger series must mean bigger engine. And I think most European Bmw enthusiast take Na I6. Also I think that I6 screaming exhaust noise and awesome intake noise belongs compact M2 size car more than V8.

I think still that there might be little possibility, that they considering naturally aspirated choice. Porsche is good example, think back that 997 turbo use same basic layout that Gt3 models, so it is possible even on small production numbers. M2 also will be ligher than M3, lighter means less fuel consumption and turbocharging might be not necessary, of course hybrid technology come also cheaper. Porsche 918 spyder 70g/km is incredible accomplishment.

Corporate Average Fuel Economy requirements pretty much make smaller displacement turbocharged engines the wave of the future.
