They might be but I prefer super coupes along the lines of the Ferrari, ford Gt and 911 myself.

It's a toss up. Sportscar racing or GT? The Ford GT has the GT name in it, but it's a sportscar or rather an exotic.

Details on BMW’s 2018 GTE-Pro effort are starting to become clearer. It’s understood that DTM squad MTEK is the leading candidate to operate the factory program, which is largely believed to utilize the new M8 platform. MTEK could exit DTM at the end of this year, as part of the series-wide reduction to six cars per manufacturer.

A decision on BMW’s tire partner has also yet to be confirmed. Dunlop’s Director of Operations, Jean-Félix Bazelin, told Endurance-Info that discussions are ongoing with the German manufacturer. Dunlop supported the German manufacturer’s last factory effort at Le Mans in 2010-2011 with the M3 GT.

I am cautiously wondering what the M8 is going to look like...hopefully it is a super coupe and not some huge boulevard cruiser like the M8 is right now.

I read another article where BMW tried to fit the V8 in the back of the i8 but it would not fit...maybe they need to modify the i8 further to get it to fit? Just a thought.

I have the feeling that the M8 will be a mid-engine supercar. I think the GTE will have a great evolution in the coming years and beyond of the BOP is more easy to be competitive with a mid-engine supercar than a luxury super boat.
The only advantage I see in the super boat is the long, which can enable higher final speed and it is very important in Le Mans.

So the 8-series mules that have already been running and photographed, and the shared 5,6,7,8 front engine platform is for what exactly?? There's less than zero chance of it being anything other than their new super-tourer M8. TT V8 seemed to be the leading candidate for the M8 with a new V12 possible for a boulevard cruiser version. Not sure where that leaves the 6 with it selling slightly better than the cancelled Z4.

Those 8 series spy photos could be the next 6 series. It doesn't seem like the journalists even know which one it is.

The 6 series is being downsized and turned into an AMG-GT competitor.
