Nice find, but we need a translator.

The Porsche and M appear to run pretty much neck and neck; maybe the 911 edges the M out but you can't really tell.

The R8 just plain fall short, imo. It's like, it could have been such a beautiful car, but Audi just could not get it right. And, for the price, it shoud be making another 80-100 hp. A few years from now, it'll be just another depreciated Audi.

The 911S sure looks nice next to the M! Oops, I almost forgot, it's a BMW forum.

The runs they did werent very conclusive but from the test I've seen all three cars (if launched properly) should run neck and neck. Dont understand dutch but the end sounded pretty good...well done.

As a Dutch man I `ll translate the last words off the video, because that summs it up................................................ ....

Question; what car is and affordable and has the most fun to it?

I agree. The M sounded very nice!

The 911 needs the Sport Exhaust (PSE) option to really sound good. With that choice it sounds incredible, imo. Unfortunately it costs $2,400 USD. Typical Porsche.

In reality the R8 has a mighty impressive exhaust not and up to 6000rpm I reckon it sounds the best of the three but when you ring the neck of the M3 it's sound is in a different class and second only to a Ferrari.

Out of the three, the 997S sounds the best from inside the cockpit but it's sound does become tiresome.
