2015?

What do you guys think would it be better to invest in a 15 sixxer or to go with the 4 banger, I feel that the 15 six has more potential but the 4 is already turbocharged, does the 6 have more room to grow or should I go with the 4?

Honestly, I think you're best going with the 4 unless you are willing to pay 6-7K to turbocharge a sixxer.

Also depends on what other options you want. You can only get a 6 in base trim and IMO the base dash is terrible.

I want the toggles and MFT etc and don't want cloth.

Then your choice is clear. Get a 2014.
Get the V8 with manual and base trim. (which has the fog lights and 3:31 ratio already)
Find one in Ruby Red or Green. The tricoat paint looks amazing no matter which color.

Mod it up to 600HP or whatever. If you want to mod, you go with the V8. I did a search online and found several just at $26K after incentives.

The 2015 turbo 4 with no options will cost you literally $300 - $500 less. That's a single mod and you're at the same money spent.

The 2014 V8 seems like a steal.

Invest? If you want speed and quickness get the 4 banger. It's got 12 second potential that your 6 won't ever see.

Yeah Im seeing the light if the 4 banger more potential and could always up the turbos, I can't wait till someone gets one and gets it in the 4-600hp range. So 4 banger I go.

If I were to buy a 2015 I would buy the 4 banger over the 6 and 8. This 4 banger is making quite the impression already and shinning over the v8. I bet it would be easy to get 450 rwhp out of that 4 banger with the right tune and some bolt on mods.

It depends on your intentions with the car. If your mindset is 'bigger is better' why not go with the GT? You can always find a car with more potential but in reality you need to ask yourself what your goals with the car are and what makes the most sense for you. For me right now all I have time for is a DD, and I prefer my DD's to be in the 300-350 HP range so I can actually enjoy the power.

If you want around 350-450 HP I would go with the ecoboost. If you add exhaust, intake, and turn the boost up a little you will be there for under 2000 easier (depending on the 'new car' markup on parts). Your not going to see anywhere near 400 HP with the V6 without boost which is extremely costly if you do it right with all the supporting mods.

I honestly love the ecoboost and think it has huge potential but couldn't pass up on the rebates Ford was offering on the 14's which is why I bought my V6. Regardless I don't like buying first year body styles so I can see what the feedback is to see if there is anything wrong or hiccups that weren't caught during R&D but am seriously considering picking up a ecoboost in a few years.

I am going to be going with the 4 banger the reason I did not mention the gt is because I'm 19 and the insurance would be very high for me, I am looking for future potential of the car and I figured the 6 has more displacement there would be more power in the future but now that I am more informed with what all you guys are talking about I wouldn't mind going down in displacement. And gotta love being a mustang person you guys and or gals on here are very helpful.

V8 all the way. 4 is a nice ride but you might as well buy an Audi if you're going to go that route

The initial insurance on a new car as well as the first registration is insane compared to something 1-2 years old, even. I'm 44 and I can manage the payments on mine, but it's $550 a month for the payment (20K loan), insurance, and registration combined. And then there's gas, which is another $250 a month. Now, you may drive a lot less, but your insurance will still be quite high. Add in a $25K loan and you're at $800 a month for sure, before money spent on mods.

$800 a month for 5-6 years is something that's hard to predict when you are just out of high school. New cars are great if you are young, but it's also money that should be going elsewhere.

I'd get a 2007-2008 GT for $6-10K and use the money for school, dating, or whatever else is going to soon be occupying your time. Pay it off quickly, mod it (or get one with mods since they add almost no long-term value) and run it until the wheels fall off.
