I get the feeling people just try to show off with threads like this. Its crazy common on here but i've never seen it before on any other car forums i've been a part of over the last 7 years of driving.

No one on the internet that you've never met before will tell you what car to buy, they will just recommend the ones they like the most. 99% of people on here will never own or get to drive anything that you have listed. I know i certainly won't for a long time.

Pick what car YOU like...and do it quietly because i'm sure no one cares...


yeah, seriously,

OP, get the car you want, then you can post pics and show it off to us at that time. It'll be a more productive discussion thread at that time.

2013 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe for the track. This will be the most dependable of the lot. The GTR is nice but way too heavy for the track and if stuff breaks, you will not get any love from Nissan. Porsche expects you to track the car and will not be petty if you have an issue and need warranty repairs. BMW is great but it also takes its share of abuse on the track and the folks in service don't like to hear about your track days.

Don't like the R8s. Just my opinion. Driven a few of them and just don't like the design.

No kidding, price aside, who cross-shops the SLS with an X6 M?

I've had tons of issues with my Aston Martin. Love the guys at the dealership here but not sure another Aston Martin is at the top.

I left off the Ferrari California also from my list. That's a very fast car and in the right color with the right rims really looks like a guy's car.

Not sure if you read my original post but I change cars often. Whatever I get I'll end up trading it in in 6 months to a year for something else. Just how I am and i'm fortunate enough to be able to afford to.

This! The next gen GT3 may be amazing if the new engine and the pdk is bulletproof like the 997

SLS is one hell of a car too (at least on aesthetic department)

Thanks everyone for your input. Again, I change cars often and am just looking for opinions really on how competitive on the track an m3 will be in comparison to cars like the SLS, GT3, California, etc. Not trying to brag. Just looking for honest feedback. Maybe i'm just looking for a few fine folks here to convince me to get the m3 or m4 over the others.

That said, the GT3 is nice. I think i've ruled out the GTR and x6 M.

My list in order:

1. m3/m4
2. Porsche GT3
3. SLS AMG
4. Aston Martin v12

None of the cars you enumerate are competition cars. If you're just screwing around at track days, you shouldn't be competing and are screwing things up for those around you who are trying to learn something.
