I can take this question. OP and I both came from a E90 M3. The answer is simple. Adding power and adding weight is not optimal. Cars like the E90 M3 has a better balance despite the power deficit. I'm looking to get back into a E90 M3 or similar car again (3.8L 911).

Personally, I think any car generally under 3600 lbs and over 450 HP will be an optimal combo. Obviously there are going to be extreme examples, like 4,000 lb 600 HP cars or 300 HP 3000 lbs examples.
