Default Panzer III with high velocity 75 mm?

Does anyone know why Germany did not make a panzer III with a high velocity 75mm gun? the turret space seems more or less the same for the panzer III and IV

I believe the turrent ring was to small to upgrade the gun, so the Panzer III was reduce to infanty surport tank.

The Pz III Ausf M Sturmpanzer was set up with the 75mm howitzer as an assault tank, but no HV HV 75s. The best was the long 50mm which proved very effective.
