You don't know what you're talking about. The 2011 gets a new engine, transmission and suspension. Brembos optional.
Edit: To clarify, the performance numbers match each other. The M3 is a sweet car yes, and you do get nice dash leather and everything, but for an extra $30k over the price of a base GT with the new 5.0? I can probably pay someone a lot less than that to put fancy leather on my doors.
