Pick your poison.
It seems like a valid comparison to me because the cars have similar performance potential. The SCCA seems to agree because they have at least one class of wheel-to-wheel road racing where the Porsche 924S / 944 and 3.8 Mustang are deemed to be of similar performance when prepped pursuant to the rules of that class.
When I made the comparison, it wasn't meant to amuse, but to illustrate a point -that the 3.8 Mustang has merit as a competition- worthy sports car
in sactioned club-level motorsport wherin cars of similar performance potential are grouped together in classes.
I'm done with making the comparison for the purposes of this thread, though. I doubt if the OP has any interest in setting his car up for sanctioned competition and gather that he's most likely purely interested in a fun daily driver, so compairisons between cars of similar performance potential are likely of little value to him.
