BMW to build a new M8 Hybrid Sports Car

Sorry if repost.

According to the German magazine Autozeitung and quoted by GT Spirit, but not yet confirmed by any of our sources, BMW is in the planning stage of a new, supersports, flagship model that could carry the M8 badge. News of a future BMW supercar have been going around for months now, but nothing solid has leaked to the press yet.
The car is rumored to take advantage of BMWs advanced development in the hybrid world, and the cars performance could reach 600 horsepower. According to the same German magazine, the technical background is completed, but everyone is waiting for BMWs board decision on whether to purse this project.
The new model, rumored to be called the M8, will be based on the Vision EfficientDynamics Concept unveiled at the IAA 2009. The hybrid drivetrain will offer near 600 ponies. The VED Concept idea goes through some iterations, and the new M8 will be five inches longer. The highly speculative M8 will be offered with a 2+2 seating combination.
