You are comparing different types of cars. I'd say a GT-R, GT3, R8 etc are "sports cars". The M3 is more of a "sporty GT" car. Something you can drive every day but not as hardcore as a sports car.

Look no further than the car's origins. The M3 starts off as a 3 series that is modified for more performance. All the other cars starts off as-is - purpose built cars to go fast in.
