Maybe in another 10 years or so the M3 will have performance like that of the 997.2 Turbo. Other than that, the M3 gets blown away in every aspect, from performance to quality/fit/finish, to feel, and design is always personal preference. and talk about a porker, your e93 weighs over 4200 lbs.
not sure why you keep compare the m3 to the turbo. they are totally different class of car and never meant to compete with each other. i see no reason for bmw to put the m3 against the turbo as they sell more m3 than the entire 911 model range combine.
for a more apple to apple comparion. for 70k, nissan gtr smash 997.1 turbo and can still hang with the 997.2 turbo on the track despite 400lb weight disadvantage and the 997.2 come 2 years later to the party. that's to me is impressive and fair comparison because nissan directly state that gtr is a turbo competitor. here is a fair third party review for proof.
what do you say about that?
