I know you're all thinking porsche yea whats there to compare, but seriously, in my school one kid has a Carrera 4S and a few others have M3's. They race for fun sometimes, and I see them coming in pretty close. The M3 has more Horsepower, however the Porsche has more torque and 4 Wheel Drive. What does everyone think on this comparison???

This is a tough comparison do to price. Remember guys the 4s is about a 90,000 dollar car. An M3 equipped with the s54 engine will be right there in performance. Again proof of how good the M3 really is. I think it would be all about the driver. Hey we even have a back seat and an engine that does not sound like a can full of rocks on cold start up. The 4s is an awsome car but how would the M3 perform if you put 30K more in it? It would not even be close. The M3 is truley a remarkable car.
well it would be really hard to do anymore performance stuff to the current engine. if you threw an extra 30k in there it would involve putting an m5 engine in there. then there would be no question of who would be quicker. ive driven and ridden in both the 4s and m3 and it would definately come down to the drivers
I have a buddy that has a 4s. I have the 04 M3. When it warms up I will go over and see him, see if I can get a little competition going. I was 15 the first time I took a car down a drag strip. Lets just say I've made a few passes over the years. I'll see what his 4s has got. I hope he has his wallett with him.
