The BMW may have lost, but it still did almost as well as a 991.1 Gt3 and it was only 0.7s slower than the 718 gt4, which is a track-focused mid-engined coupé that weights 300 kg. The reviewer was heavily biased against the BMW. Yes the steering is lighter than the Porsche'S but according to ever my review it's quick, precise and it provides enough feedback. The oversteer was not a problem at Vairano and I am sure that had he chosen the AWD version the car would have been easier to drive. This guy just wanted to talk shit about the M4. The M4 is much more comfortable than the gt4, it has 4 real seats, a real trunk, better infotainment and safety systems, according to Quattroruote it even has lower emissions, it has slightly better straight line performances (especially the AWD version) and it costs just as much as the Porsche despite being a much more complete car all-around. Besides, at Vairano the time difference was only 0.2s, and the BMW did not have cup2, which means that the BMW would have beaten the Porsche if both cars had the same tyres. As a track toy the Porsche is better, especially in terms of driving pleasure, but as an all-around car the BMW owns the match completely.
