To repeat myself, these cars are simply not competitors. The only reason the issue comes up is because Ford stated their performance goal was to beat the M3 around Laguna Seca, which of course they had already done, or they wouldn't have made the statement.
This is exactly like Nissan stating their performance goal for the GT-R was to beat the then current Porsche Turbo around the 'Ring. Job done before they mentioned that, of course.
