One of the reasons I don't really want to "step up" from the M3's level of performance has to do with the speeds achievable on track.


Not to mention that to drive the Z06 around daily, you'd need to swap to regular street tires anyway...
There are a lot of cars available that are in the "Too much for the street, not enough for the track" limbo.

Totally agree. I am beginning to eye used Caymans and Exiges as well as trying to get a test drive in a Caterham.
