We know that the base M3 will do 0-60 in under 6 seconds, but is anyone able to make an educated guess on how far under 6 seconds we should expect for the most stripped down version? It sounds like most people are predicting that there won't be a P version of the RWD model, meaning in order to get any increase in performance we'll need to wait for the AWD and then pony up at least an additional 5-7.5k more plus risk at least part of the tax credit.
Am I the only one around here who plans to cancel my reservation if 0-60 comes in near the upper 5s?
I'm sure most others aren't weighing acceleration so strongly against other attributes, and I know that the electric motor should feel snappier up front than you would otherwise expect, but it wont feel remotely as punchy as a Mustang GT or Camaro SS if its more than a full second slower to 60. (Am I wrong?)
