Talk about jealousy -- here's a reaction from a M3 fan about the WSJ article:


Not that I would consider buying one, but yesterday's Wall St. J had a review of a limited production Z06. Other than its 4.0 0-60, and pinpoint steering, the review was as harsh as the ride. Same engine, I think 385hp though. Very, very noisy, reviewer had to blast sound system to hear it. The guy ended the article noting it was not going to have a spare tire to save weight, just an aerosol can of fix-a-flat.
They're already convinced their standard Z06 can pull a 4.0sec 0-60 even though no one has reproduced faster then 4.5(C&D)in road tests. They'll be making up stories this 'special' Z06 will blow away McLaren F1s.

If the new M3 is like my M5 the owner will find no spare tire in the trunk of his M3, I know because my M5 has no spare.

I still assert that it is tough justifying a sedan people hauler when sports cars are being discussed. Two different animals in my mind.
