Not surprised, more than a track it's a rectangle with long straights where a powerful engine is more important than a good chassis.

It is true, as fast as a 2013 991 GT3. Not bad took BMW 8 years to catch up.

And Porsche has the new GT3 RS so BMW can start over using a new benchmark

"Easily controlable rear end w 4wd, with 2w drive it goes sideways, brakes need a bit more feeling, a great toy - wunderbar"! He likes it! Yes, time for the stripped M8 CS - you might as well just remove those rear seats. Only people w/o legs will find these useful

Even if it is, I still don't see these two cars in the same class. The M8 is much bigger, almost a foot and a half longer, 4 inches wider and weighs around 1000pds more.

Which to say WOW what awesome performance from a car that big, but it's not really competing with the 911, BMW built a different car, its a GT car that has sports car performance.

These cars aren't even remotely close to being in the same category. You're the one who has some catching up to do!
