I see them running the E92 M3 one more season as well. BMW said they would have details before October. Now that October is almost over, I am guessing they ran into problems trying to convince them to allow the Z4 with a 4.4L.

No one says they are close to production cars. But they are "production based" cars. This is the entire point of the GT class. There are strict homologation rules for a reason. This isn't generic spec racing like DTM.
