Well i don't think the next 1M (M2) will have a smaller engine than the out coming M135, it just wouldn't make sense and more important it will cause problems with potential buyers regarding exhaust notes, maybe the M135 would end being more tunable because of it being an I6 instead of an I4 and many other things. Also on the other hand i can't imagine BMW giving the M2 the same detuned engine of the next M3 because it would be very easy to get some aftermarket tune and get same performance of the next M3 which would only cause problems to BMW cannibalizing M3 sales, and I think they might surprise us and they want the next M3 to stand over all the other M models they offer. Just my 02. cents
