Past 4 generations of M5 have had 5 year model runs. F90 came out in 2017 so following that logic I'd say you have another 2 years before the next gen comes out.

I can't think of any BMW V6 that has reached production.... BMW just doesn't like that configuration.

The new M3 will have the S58 which is a TT straight 6. I don't think the next M5 will share a motor with a "lessor" model. Maybe a different hopped up straight 6 for increased emissions/displacement problems that euro/asian countries are phasing in? Or more likely they'll keep tweaking the S63 over and over and over.

The 2020 X5/6 M cars just got redone and are using the latest revision S63, so for parts sharing/economics I'd bet the new M5 will follow suit there. I could reasonably see a hybrid assist for 0-60 numbers and MPG stat padding.

This is all my personal speculation, I'd be trolling german bmw forums for more accurate rumors.
