I know that a lot more can be gotten out of the car with a tune. However to be honest 1) Roush/Ford have to abide by federal and state laws with emissions. 2) With an aftermarket tune, my drive-train warranty goes bye bye. Even with the $1000 kit from Roush to push 730HP I would lose my drive train warranty.

I have a friend that had a tuned NA Coyote 2016 Mustang GT and he said it just wanted to pull like no tomorrow. When my warranty is up, I might consider putting on more of an aggressive tune, but for now it is fast enough for me.

I was being sarcastic, lol. Thank you anyway for answering me. My reply was in regards to the guy that said a stage 3 670 hp Roush car wasn't fast and that it was the Roush tune that gives it 670 hp.

$$$$$$ has always equaled HORSEPOWER.
Ya want a fast car, Ya just gotta pay up.
Then, there is always the used market,
This is nothing new, It has always been this way.

Leonardo da Vinci’s painting, “Saviour of the World,” sold for $450,312,500 Wednesday at auction, Christie’s said. The price, which includes a buyer’s premium, makes it “the most expensive painting ever sold at auction,” the auction house said in a statement.

And who thinks Ford is gouging us for the new Mustang? Like anything for sale, it is only worth what someone is willing to pay.

I was wondering when we'd see these go up for sale lol. I wish I had the money to be able to buy something that expensive so I could try and capitalize on it limited supply.

Count me in the “unwilling” column. The 2019 Mustang convertible I built on Ford’s website was $60,000! No frigin way would I ever pay that much for a non Shelby. Just plain nuts!

They certainly aren't gouging simply because the Mustang is still thousands of dollars less than a comparably equipped Camaro or Challenger. All the large numbers people are quoting include options that have not been available before. People seem to think that active exhaust, magnetic ride, digital dash and PP2 should all be free.

The $2k increase in base price is much larger than the $1000 increase between 15 and 17 but it is still only 6%.

you can still get base model ecoboosts at a price I will say is low. No haters plz, it is an affordable way to own an Icon which is part of the Stangs original intent. A semi-sporty car for the masses.

I consider it a very good thing that I hate the new hood design on the 2018.....that’s my excuse for not buying one and I’m sticking to it!

That, and there is not one creak, groan or rattle in my 19,000 mile 2015 GT convertible. There are a few sparkles in the windshield from road debris, but the paint, leather and carpeting look like new as does the top. Also, Ford no longer offers Guard Green which is the classiest color for an old man’s GT convertible — very understated and goes with the styling perfectly.
Time for tires in a few 1,000 miles but that’s it.....and even a lowly 435 HP will still spin the tires effortlessly, so 460 HP is like....meh!
