Stock, the 968 is faster by a bit in every way.
The E30 M3 however, is lighter, more nimble, and has better aftermarket support.
Dollar for dollar, it's still the E30 M3 if you care to modify it.
: Here's a question I have wanted an answer to for a while, and thought this would a good place to get some opinions:
: How does an E30 M3 compare to a Porsche 968? I have never driven either, but from what I understand, both are very good-handling and balanced cars, both have high output four cylinder engines (with some engine vibration in every day driving, right?), and both are well-built, both require careful caring, so on paper, they seem like similar cars. Has anyone driven both, or does anyone know of a place on the net where I can find a comparison test? The Porsche is probably fatser 0-60, and some people have told me it handles better, but the BMW DOES have in incredible racing heritage behind it...
: I have been tempted to buy both, although my love for BMW tells me to forget the Porsche.
: Any insight would be appreciated.
