A mate and I have a little discussion about which car would win on a RACETRACK.
As we have seen here(standing) and here (rolling), the M6 is faster on a straight line.

But what will happen when they race on a track?
Will the technology in the M6 beat the 4-wheel-drive 911 turbo?

I think the M6 will beat the 911 turbo because of its great stability and the constant acceleration caused by the automatic gearbox.

But what do you think?

Didn't Top Gear do a race where the M6 lost to a 911 Carrera?

Yes they did. S7E01 to be precise. They raced a M6, 991 Carrera S and a V8 Vantage up a hill on the isle of Man. The M6 and the V8 Vantage were about the same, but the Porsche was much quicker.

And yes, I agree with the opinion that the Porsche will beat the M6 around the track. In my eyes the Porsche is a real race car and the BMW is just a fat sports coupe with an enormous engine. After the start cornering abilities are much more important than acceleration.

The Turbo will be faster in the straights and in the curves.

The 996t would win. It can corner a lot faster than the M6, in M-mode or not.

The M6 is a go-faster version of a fat GT coupe.

The 911 Turbo is a go-faster version of what was already a performance car.
