If you can afford it without going broke and still paying the rest of your bills I don't see why not

Yeah I've been trying to figure that all out, I really want that motor and power. I could care less about all the other stuff like gadgets and tech

You can probably get a great deal the closer we get to the release of the 15s

That's what I'm waiting for; once the 15 is out, I assume 14 is going to get heck lot of price break! Ford rolls out really good deals towards the end of August/September, see if you can get lucky!

Not even a fair comparison. Get the 5.0 if it won't break the bank.

I just pilled the trigger and did a 2013 V6 to 2013 V8 car swap yesterday. More money but the torque is amazing.

You wont regret it. Go for it if you can afford it. If it is truly the muscle only you care about I bet you can get a great deal on a GT non-premium. The 2015 design is out and you are already seeing some price drops. Just remember all of us are the same LOL... save enough to Mod... you know you will.

This year the breaks come in April, right? Well, maybe not, not too many '15 Mustangs to show up at dealerships. Strange time for Mustang sales, very exciting. I can not wait to see official rendering of the new SVT Mustang Cobra. I love the new ones, hope it will be a 5.2L engine.

Hopefully it will be the rumored 5.2L TT "voodoo" coyote.

You may find the opposite happening shortly this Spring. You may find lots of folks buying up 2014 Mustangs as they are the end of the bloodline of "Retro" 'Stangs before the new 2015 Austin-Euro Stangs. (Hey I do like the new look myself - a poor man's Vanquish.)

In fact that is what drove me to trade my Auto V6 2013 for any 2013/2014 V8 Manual I could find the same color and features; as I want the Retro look and the 2013/2014 are the best platform to reproduce a newer 71 Mach 1 look with.
