    • Laptimes around German Contidrom circuit by AutoBild for 1M, Cayman R, E92 M3, and E92 M3 DCT

      AutoBild has done a comparison between the 1M Coupe and the Porsche Cayman R. AutoBild picks the 1M coupe over the Cayman R mostly do to its daily livability. That's fine, but we are performance enthusiasts here and the Cayman R thoroughly outperformed it. They take these cars on the Contidrom course which is a fairly tight/technical and the 1M was over a second slower. What is interesting is the AutoBild times for the M3 and DCT M3 are both faster than the 1M. The DCT M3 also is 3/10's faster than the 6-speed showing how the DCT shift times add up to make a substantial difference.

      Lap Times Contidrom:

      Cayman R: 1:34,21
      M3 DCT: 1:35,11
      M3 6-speed: 1:35,41
      1M Coupe: 1:35,76

        1M cant come in DCT, if it did it would outperform the standard M3 and that was a simple business decision to make. No DCT on the 1M to keep it under the M3.
        It already did on another track, it beat the Dct too. Look 4 posts up

        Click here to enlargeClick here to enlarge True true true.....Click here to enlarge The only difference is that it will only cost the owner of the 1M just about $1.5k to make it way faster vice $9k+. I see your point though. Click here to enlarge
