    Autocar comparison video of the E92 M3 GTS and the Porsche 997.2 GT3

    Here is a comparison video from Autocar that on paper should be spectacular, but as usual, Autocar's execution just plain stinks. You get two of the best German drivers cars in the world and this the best Autocar can do? No laptimes? No acceleration data? No skidpad/slalom numbers? No hard data of any kind? This video is the equivalent of two people taking two cars in the canyons while chatting on cell phones about what they think of the cars as if that is automotive journalism. American car magazines and blogs simply do these comparisons better, this is a major letdown.

    Now now, I love BMW as much as the next guy but the Porsche GT3 is a different animal imho.
    Not bad for a little six banger. Click here to enlarge

    Well all LOVE the GT3, we just hate AutoCar's lame excuse for a comparison video.

    If this is their best that sucks.

    Where are the numbers? What about a real track comparison with laptimes not just following each other on a road with different drivers? It's like a car review for women sitting around and talking about their feelings.

    I don't disagree, difference would be exacerbated with the GT3RS. The M3 GTS is somewhat of a letdown IMO.

    You talk like you had never seen an autocar video before, Remember Aventador video? Or their 60 sec verdict videos?
    This is their best so far and still it sucks.
