One reason why the M3 was quicker 'in-gear' than the Porsche............it's a 7sp instead of a 6sp like in the GT3.

It will be interesting to see if these times are typical of the GTS because at the moment I am struggling to understand how something with an extra 30hp+30ft lbs and weighs 75kgs less with stickier rubber is proving to be so much slower than what Car & Driver achieved from a stock M3 with Comp pack? Even allowing for the 0.3s adjustment on using the 1ft rollout it does put in to question the results from that and most other of their tests.
