Nah come on take it seriously. I didn't put an "all of the above" or "none of the above" because I hope people will think them through. Everyone has an idea of where their car stands relative to the competition. I know there's few (probably none) that I'd click for my e46 M3.

There are some pretty messed up (biased) answers in this poll.

997.1 Turbo...3 votes...really? I'd take the P-car in a heartbeat!

It really depends on everyone's definition of performance though.

The general trend is worth looking at... I'm sure we can dismiss some of the ones with very few votes?

Dont think this is going well. The delusion is rampant here. There are only really maybe 6 cars that the M3 has better performance than in that list.
How the hell can someone say its got better performance than the 911 turbo, GTR and Z06?

Anybody that clicked C6Z06 or GTR needs to get off the computer and put their D*** back in their exhaust tips.

Maybe the word 'Performance' needs to be defined by OP before anyone ticks any of the boxes.

If it's purely acceleration then it's very simple to look at times for each car and see. If it's simply lap times then again just do a google search. If it's an objective thing as to which gives to most pleasure regardless of the above then good luck with the thread.

I shall refrain from voting until the above points are made more clear.

This poll should have been made public, so I can quickly figure out which crazies belong on my ignore list.

I'm sorry but those who do not think an M3 can take a GTR or Z06 are just plain...............correct. LOL!

However, I would take an M3 over a Z06 and I bought my M3 over a GTR for several reasons (not denying the beast that is a GTR).

The perfect garage for me:

GT3

I would take an M3 over a Z06, because it fits my overall family needs much better.

This poll is proof positive that there are a whole bunch of people on this forum who have no idea what they are talking about.
