GT3, Gran Turismo or GTR

If you had a choice to go with Porsche 997 GT3, Maserati Gran Turismo or Nissan GT-R which way would you go? Keeping the M of course...

Really depends what you want for a second car. Maserati vs GT3 are two completely different animals. For me, if I HAD to keep the M3, I'd get the Maserati as a comfortable luxury cruiser and mod the shit out of the M.

Otherwise I'd get rid of the M and get the GT3 and Maserati.

I think nobody will be able to answer your question. The reason is that you say we keep our M3. The problem is that the M3 has half of every car you mentioned. So would get 911 GT3 and Gran Tursimo, and no M3.

Maserati Gran Turismo...but i do have a feeling that they will change the taillights. Because they kinda look outdated with the pattern style they chose to go with.

and Keep ur M3 .

I said keep the m3 simply because its more of a DD and the maintainence cost are reasonable compared to the ones mentioned. GT-R is the best bang for your buck and probably the highest power potentional but ultimately its still a nissan. GT3 great compact car with raw power no TT unfortunately as found in the previously mentioned and in the GT2 and the Maserati just looks the most impressive of all but probably lacks the power of the other 2. All great cars but just wanted to see which way people would go...

The GT3 ofcourse. The driving experience of a GT3 is just in a different league. It is a true Le Mans endurance race car tamed for the streets with luxury to fulfill racing homologation requirements.

It is a no brainer. You said it is no TT, which is what it's biggest attraction is and the reason for its preference over 997 TT as a performance car even for Walter Rohrl himself. A pure lightweight, race-bred performance engine with the soul stirring sounds urgency and response impossible in a lazy, vaccum-cleaner like turbo engine.

Gran Turismo=Bling just go for the GT-R or GT3 they're made to be driven...however there is a huge price gap between both cars.....
Id go GT3 if not GTR
