    Re: BEST MOTORING: BMW M3 vs Lexus IS-F vs S2K vs 350Z

    Once again M3 is showing to be a damn quick car. People used to think the RS4 is quick on the track, but M3 really is in another league. How does the M3 compare against the Cayman S on the track?

    A 6MT M3 has run an 8:05 (SA) at the Ring on CUP tires. With the 7 speed dual clutch transmission it should do a bit better.

    I dislike the IS-F. The whole car is tacky...

    Perhaps this vid gives you a clue

    Cayman S nordschleife by WR is 8.11
    So M3 is quicker but has got also 3.8 kg/cv against 4.56 of the Cayman.
    This means that a similar ratio would see a cayman with 355cv, so same power of the actual carrera S.
    Would you imagine how quick could then the small baby be?

    Cayman S Ring time by Sport Auto is 8.26min, M3 Coupe(e92) with Cup+ tires is 8.05min...

    Good old Horst must have had a bad day with the CaymanS (slower than 3.2L/280 hp Boxster S).
    There is no evidence re the claimed W.R. time, but you can watch the vid with Timo Kluck doing a 8:17 with a 85kg passenger (car equipped with PCCB + normal tires). As the lap was filmed by a BMW driver following the CaymanS it shouldn't be a fake Take away the passenger + put on some cup tires and I bet the car will achieve the claimed WR time (8:11). Sportauto times are nice to get an idea about the performance of a car, but it's not the bible - just IMHO of course.
