Autoweek said it will have the 315hp EURO motor that was in the e36 M3/Mcoupes. This is not the identical 330 HP engine from the new M3 (though close).


It is the new M3 engine and it isn't a deliberate attempt to detune. There are two reasons for the disparity in horsepower, one is the reduced space available in the roadster/coupé for an optimised gas-flowed exhaust, the other I can't remember at the moment.
