I was already asked by my tech-at the Ford store-"have I driven the new GT yet?" I had to say that I haven't-yet but, fully intend to. He told me-with a wry grin-"don't, then"
He knows me well. As soon as I drive that badboy-I will probably be switching cars !!
Not only have I test drove one I bought a Grabber Blue GT. They are scary fast but handle awesome. I'm getting 22 mpg driving in city and why combined and I don't baby it.

yes the 5.0 was more powerful, and the way it could still pull in 6th gear while being low in the powerband was impressive. but overall it just didn't grab me.

when i drove the 10 gt, it instantly felt right, and i was like this is the car i want. that and the engine sounds so much more mean in the 10. gotta give it to the 4.6 for being one of the best sounding engines around.

i dunno maybe im weird, but thats the impression i got from driving both.
That is really impressive. I think you just proved why so many people love their mustang, each year has a personality that we all click with. For me, I loved the 82 as that year spoke to me. I know, 90hp is Crap, but I wan't ready for another mustang until the 2011 came out.

You got a good deal on your 2010 and if you ever sale it, you will now know enough to not let anyone tell you that you got Crap compared to the 2011.

May you have a journey of a million miles in your 2010.

C'mon, y'all-nobody on this forum has "come down"-on a `10 GT buyer/owner.. All confirm that your choice-is simply that-"your choice"-whether it be color, price, feel, gut instinct-`doesn't matter. If you're driving a Mustang-and you say "you're one of US"-we have a member space for you, here. !

Mustangs constantly change year to year and thankfully do get better. Thats just part of it.

Re: Who has test driven a 2011 GT??

I have read this posting with a great deal of interest. I am no expert, but I do love Mustangs. I had a 68 Coupe with a 289 and an automatic transmission that took me 40 years to get. Loved it even though it creaked and groaned and wouldn't stop for anything (manual breaks). I sold it before coming to Germany. Since I arrived here I have had the opportunity to test drive a new 2010 GT auto and a 2010 GT manual Mustang on the autobahn (yes, the autobahn), then came back to Maryland for a business trip and test drove a 2011 GT man and 2011 v6 man.
Depending on what you are after in your car you will have different opinions. All are great cars. The 10's drove great and I got to legally drive them over 100mph. I can't do that in the U.S. I am older now also so I don't need to jack rabbit start from light-to-light, but I like having the ability to do that if I want. When I return to the U.S. in July we will be looking for a new Mustang to use as my daily driver. I really want the V8, but have been impressed with the V6 after I drove both back-to-back. I can get decent gas mileage in the v6 and have an awesome looking and driving car. Still haven't made a decision yet and I need to return before I get serious about what I will buy, but no matter what someone buys it when it comes to a Mustang it should be what makes them happy and it adds another person to the Mustang legacy.

Congrats to those that not only test drove, but bought a new Mustang.

Strangely enough in the last bit there has been an uprising in the popularity of Mustang II's... the redheaded step child of the Mustang legacy.
