I also believe Porsche has their cars more track/performance orientated to begin with. With some nice coilovers, corner balance, mild suspension parts and these cars are beasts. Maybe some people just don't like that the our M3s can hang with the big boys for half the price.
I love the gt variants and would buy one in a second if I could, but would still be difficult to ditch my M. I also like how the engine is in the front which keeps it less darty than a Porsche. The M is always comfortable to drive fast. A big advantage in my opinion and exactly what I want.
