Is it even a question?

Buy a C2 and do the GT3-RS conversion

M3

If you want to compare performance from both manufacturers, just look at ALMS Champion BMW M3 and the whiny little b*#$%es over at Porsche who had the higher-ups change the rules so Porsches could dominate once again. Take the M3 forget the Carrera unless it is a Turbo.

Pure BS...at least the 996s were running a variant engine of the road car's former 3.4L. The same cannot be said for the M3 GTR's 4.0L V8, which obviously cannot be found in any mass produced BMW road car. Even though I love BMWs, I must side with Porsche's argument on this one...let's not forget why BMW Motorsport went with the V8 to begin with.
