Autoweek is almost always correct when it's Autoweek vs. salesperson. In fact, probably the norm is M3F members being correct over Service Advisors and Salespeople. On average they really are that bad.

First, the old/current Z4 M coupe has more space in it's engine bay that you could probably put to S54s in there. No joke, there is a lot of room. (or maybe you didnt know there was already a Z4M by the wording you chose).

Second, The new Z4 looks like it has just as long a front end if not longer so it should fit in my personal opinion.
Sorry not my speculation...

If you had read your BMW mags you would have read the same thing...

BMW confirmed back in March they will not be building a new Z4M due to many issues...

Economics, lack of demand, lack of a sufficient motor in production, lack of funding to list a few...

As for the turbo M3, BMW discussed that in March as well. Perhaps you should read more?

MUNICH, GERMANY -- Mark the 2014 model year on your calendars, M fanatics. That's when BMW plans to introduce M versions of its next 3 Series and its second-generation 1 Series coupe, both due for redesign in the 2013 model year. While it's too early in BMW's planning stages to say for certain exactly what will power those Ms, the tuning division's CEO, Ludwig Willisch, revealed M's thinking at a roundtable interview here Wednesday morning.

Along with everybody else, BMW faces strict, new U.S. Corporate Average Fuel Economy and European Union CO2 standards, and must power lighter cars with more fuel-efficient engines. A turbo-six will replace the M3's 400-horsepower, 4.0L V-8 and a 300-plus-horsepower turbo four will rocket a 1 Series M (just don't call it an M1).
And about the older model Z4M...

What does the 2008 Z4M have to do with the title of the string, 2010 M Roadster?

it is a 4L v8, over a hundred hp per litre.
you may have the s65 and s85 confused, since the s85(e60 m5) is 5L

*edit- beat me to it;[

For some reason I doubt that. The new M3 engine wont be released for at least 4 years from now and that would be a long time for BMW to wait to introduce an M version of the Z4. With that said, the tehnology and engine in the M3 is usualy and will be a stand out marketing spectacle for BMW and I dont think they want to waste that big event opportunity by releasing the engine on the Z4M first.. Well see tho

The new V8 will be more compact (lengthwise) then the I6 so why wouldn't it fit? I doubt the engine bay is an issue, its just a matter of time for the M division to get their hands on a Z4 and to their thing.

Now that they are done with that stupid X5/6 M hopefully they will move on to this project.
