What's more usable on the street/every day life (unless it's your weekend/track car)? There's your answer (as much as I love the idea of the GT3).

997 GT3 or 991 GT3 both over an M4. As I'm a manual transmission lover I would probably get the 997.

Realistically, the GT3. I'd rather have a (yet to be announced) M2 before the M3/4.

Not sure if serious..

The 991 gt3 is a monster. Zero comparison. For dd or second car. The new 991 suspension is amazing. The c2s I drove was incredible.

997.2 gt3 over m3/4 as long as it's not my only car. As a second / track car 997.2 gt3 all day.

These two car are in COMPLETELY different universes. Not comparable in any way, shape or form as a track car or DD. The word perfect isnt good enough to describe the new GT3 let alone the 991 911 platform.

Lmao p car fanboys. The only one who is a fanboy is the ones who think the m4 is a superior performance car to a 135k Porsche that

-was faster around a track than a McLaren mp4-c
-traps almost 130mph
-weighs just over 3100 lbs
-runs the quarter mile in low 11s
-is based on the awesome new pasm suspension and longer wheelbase

Oh, and haven't driven a 991 of any kind almost certainly.

Seriously, I have and love and m3, but who the hell thinks it's a better car than a 991 gt3?

You can't be a fan of performance cars without being a fan of Porsche's. It's in the Geneva Convention.

You'll find that A LOT of Porsche owners keep M cars for daily driving.

i am not feeling the new M4. i am really leading on a 911 for next car. i love the GT3 but its little much for DD in my state. I like Porsche engines more than what BMW is making. I also love the newest generation body style of 911s.

my dream car is a 911 turbo

I love my E90 M3 for its looks and engine. The M4 doesn't do it for me in either department.

None of the above. I'd rather get a C7 corvette. Better car and better value than either of the above. Probably cheaper to maintain and insure as well.

M4 vs GT3 is like comparing Apples to Oranges.

What do exactly do you want? a GT car or an axe murderer ?

+1 i read that somewhere as well about the Geneva convention. without any other criteria its the gt3 all the way. if for daily the m4, track car gt3, weekend car gt3, second car gt3, basically unless you are planning every day use its a no brainer and then i would still probably get the gt3 and suffer.

Track: GT3 (duh!!)

Street: M4 (duh!!)

This is an apple/orange comparison. I still don't know why people compare cars that are in very different categories in terms of their intended functions.

Well I am not a Porsche fan. I would never own one. Even if I had enough to buy 1000 GT3s.. Sorry doesnt interest me, regardless how fast they go. I will go above any Porsche if I want a exotic car.

This is easy, BMW.

Dumb question is dumb.

If you're tracking, GT3.

The new M3 is the better dd though, and looks way better than the coupe.

Wait till BMW makes an M2. Drop 30k worth of mods and call it the perfect car.
