G80 M3 no MT or RWD?

I stopped paying attention last year, but I thought it was a near certainty that the next M3/4 would have AWD and more power but that there would be an "M3 Pure" that would be RWD and MT.

It seems that's out now, at least to start. That's sad. Now I read that if there ever is a MT it will be restricted to ~450hp (FYI, my ZCP F80 has 444hp). RWD is up in the air since the AWD will have option of 100% power to rear wheels.

While no more MT M3's would validate my decision to pick up on of the last MT F80's, it still makes me sad.

The last report I read a couple of weeks ago was still talking about a RWD M3 Pure with a manual, but maybe that is off the table now.
