Uh, define High performance car. The new M5 and M6 perform better than their previous generations and they compete very well with cars in THEIR class so what exactly are you expecting? The M6 to be some sort of super car???

The '11 1M is a testament to where BMW ///M want to head with their smaller coupes. You have to remember that the M5 and M6 target different clientele and are essentially BIG GT cars...
The 1M,(future M2), and M4 will target a completely different clientele. These cars will be (and are) high performance coupes that will compete if not, whoop cars in their class.
I find it funny how people expect the new M6 to beat cars that are not even in it's class. Like the Camaro or Corvette.
Lets compare apples to apples folks
