The price ratio between the GTR and 911 is also very similar to the Stang and loaded up M3.

So even if performance can be considered "equal" in an overall sense, the M3 gives you a far higher level of refinement, style, and class in all aspects of its design and engineering.

Well stated! Frankly, if my SOLE concern was speed/handling for the lowest price, there is no better car than the new GTR. Hands down, that car is blazing fast in its execution.......BUT I'd still rather have an M3.

P.S. Did you guys see the newest GTR on Top Gear the other day? It now ranks at the top of their test track lap times list.......even faster than a Zonda R! Whoa!
