I presume you are defining "outperform" to mean straight line acceleration only (even though there are lots of components relative to "performance").

You need to be careful comparing magazine "test" numbers between different cars on different days. Not an accurate comparison. The M3 is not as fast in a straight line as the new M5. Maybe the M6 cab due to weight. I personally like the M3 even if it is "slower" in a straight line but not because it is necessarily a "better" car but it is better for me
