Seems like a strange set to compare since none of these really compete with one another.

Nice find though.

911r for me. It's like a gt3rs but 6 speed.

I'd have the 911R, sell it, then buy a couple of houses and the M4 GTS

They basically said nothing. Compared specs and each pointed out what they liked about their respective cars. Really nothing we didn't already know. Not a good comparison video.

They make it seem like they are going to compare the 2 cars and even say whoever is slower loses, yet they don't provide any real insight outside of spec differences you can read off a sheet and don't even post track times. Not a great vid imo but I would take the 911R because that car is just a gorgeous machine.

What I read between the lines is that the Alfa is an absolute bargain...

Well that's a disappointing end I wanted to see em lapped True eargasms though from both the p and the b damn!

Not sure why but the 911 looks so dated in this video maybe it's the stripes? :

M4 GTS was by far the more interesting looking car there imho. I've seen one a few weeks ago it truly is something special

Uh, if you got selected to purchase the 911R (918 Spyder owners had first right of refusal) you would already have many other cars and couple houses.

Yeah cause stock M4s come with a factory roll bar and no rear seat, custom dash, and an orange front splitter with multiple adjustments

Yeah, cause you can see all that when you're looking at the car from a distance.
