The GT3 needs to be DRIVEN. The M3 you can just take out for a drive if you'd like. You'll miss the straight line speed, but that cornering speed is a whole other level.

991 GT3? Do it no questions asked.

997.2/997.1/996? Go testdrive first (awesome, raw beasts, but no creature comforts)

If you go Porsche, Turbo S is this the only way to go.

The new M4 will be a BEAST, software upgrade and it will be CrAzY!

Do it if you have another car for DD duties (and no, your Ferrari 360 doesn't count).

The GT3 is the closest thing Porsche has to a street-able race car. If I went Porsche, the GT3(rs) is the only way to go. An AWD porsche is no better than a GTR.

If you can, go for the 997.2 GT3 RS 4.0. It is the last manual Porsche GT3 plus the fact that it is the GT3/GT3 RSs Holy Grail...


Wish you the best with the purchase.

No question GT3 is One Awesome car, GTR is one of my favorite cars, but Turbo S is something special.

I love my M3...ALOT. With that said, the GT3 is definitely one of the greatest cars I've ever driven.

If it's a daily, M3 no doubt. If an extra fun car to have for weekends and nice days...GT3 for sure!
