I find this article to be hilarious. This line specifically.
" the M3 doesn’t skimp on supercar performance. It just happens to be dressed in a polished and practical package"
By that standard a Mustang GT is also a super car; seeing as how its faster than the M3 in almost every objective category. I hear the "Too easy to drive" comment a lot from regular people on the track. This is usually an excuse as to why they didn't run as fast, or faster than the GTR owner.
No need to shoo me off either, as I am genuinely considering an E92 M3 now that prices for used ones are in the mid 30k range. It would make for a nice daily driver.
