    m3 is nothing but a 3 series with engine and suspension. According to you, if the cadillac came out with an sts that can handle well and have gobs of power then it will be considered a sports car when in fact it's merely a luxury sedan tune for some more fun. What about Audi RS6 station wagon? It handles like a dream and it has 450hp from factory, is that a sports car or a sporty car?
    I stand by my statement that M3 isn't a sports car but m roadster/coupe is

    weren't they the one that declared m3 as the winner because it had backseats and z06 won every single test conducted(title of the article was about performance ).
    Anyways, I wonder if they can make the same comparison with the newer z06, where the new z06 produces more power in a lighter form

    I think the problem/issue is that the M3 has no competition in the Sport Coupe category. Plus, no one in mid-life crisis is thinking that a sport coupe will help them look better with the girlies. So they have to call it a 'sports car' to get the old guys interested!

    I think the Mustang Cobra and the Pontiac GTO, at least technically, are the M3's real competion.

    m3s do have competition from its nearest rival audi. It's called rs4 and it has a 380hp engine under the hood irc.

    Except it is a sedan and not a coupe. That's why I prefaced my comment with 'technically'.

    Besides, they don't offer the RS4 in the US according to Audi's site. At least not yet. Just the RS6.

    If we start including car's not offered here, then there is a few more 'coupes' to look at.
