Video: Autocar Pits Nissan GT R Aganist BMW M3 & Porsche 911 GT3

Chris Harris gets behind the wheel of the 3 most desirable super cars this year and drove them on the track to see which is the “King”. Is the Nissan GT-R really good as people say it is?, is it better than the Legendary Porsche 911 GT3?, or does the new V-8 in the M3 have to say something. I personally don't understand why the GT-R is being compared to the M3, why would they compare the M3(low 4 second car) to the GT-R(low 3 second car). They should be comparing it to the Ferrari Enzo and Porsche Carrera GT, but personally i would take the M3 over them all anyways. Watch the video to see who won Autocar’s comparison test.

    The reason they compare the GTR to the M3 is price – the GTR and M3 (with a couple of options) cost the same price, though the GTR will blow the doors of the M3.

    to put a M3 with a porsche is out of place. anyone that has driven a 911 or 911S knows the road feel is completely different than a SEDAN which BMW makes, and calls the ultimate driving machine. ultimate? well, if you want to compare to a camry or other sedan. but it’s a sedan. four doors or two doors, box car. Zero road feel. the porsche is a race car. they don’t falsely brag about ultimate driving machine. they just claim, “there is no substitute” and they are correct. i’ve driven the best BMW’s and there is no road feel. you may as well be on a couch or arm chair.

    @John: I agree, I also don’t think that the M3 is in the same class as the other 2 cars, but it was still interesting to see them going at each other.

    for the record, i had my 997 S chipped and everything is stock… i just beat an M6 the other day… also came close to a Ferrari 430, but he nosed me out. for the record. but porsche is all about feel, road feel.

    I don’t that chap was wearing a seatbelt while driving the Porsche. Not a healthy practice.

    The noise coming from that Porsche is worth the money.
