Some interesting quotes and points
"#1 - BMW M3 - 220 points
#2 - Nissan GT-R - 206 points
#3 - Porsche 911 Turbo - 193 Points
BMW M3 - Direct connection between man and machine, vice free handling, feathery feel, Grammy worthy engine.
Nissan GT-R - Excessive road noise, clunky and rough transmission, far too wide, and too heavy. Nissan aims for Ferrari and falls between M3 and 911 Turbo.
C&D says: Nissan and Porsche "should give up on building their own cars and build M3's instead."
"Until that Elise thing hapens, the M3 is the car we'd take home forever.""
12.1@115 is way down on speed and ET. Car and Driver has been known to publish some slightly off numbers in the past. ie the 14.0 ET for R33 GT-R. Not sure how they did that way back when, but they did.
