I'll keep my 11' 5.0, and scoop up a 4cyl for a commuter... Unfortunately I'll probably mod the s**t out of that one too!

If you have that much money, just go out and buy a Tesla lol. It'll out perform your 5.0 and get better mileage then the 4cyl turbo.

That's the interior of the Model S Tesla. One of only a few cars I'd take over a Mustang.

It's actually more than that, if you get all the good options. Closer to 100k

They don't have dealerships, only showrooms. You have to actually custom order the car online. It's a much better system then what Chevy, Ford and all the other companies use. Btw, it's the highest rated car on Consumer Reports, as in ever. Highest rated car in history.

Yea your right, it's actually in the mall near by, so be pretty hard have a dealer with cars on the lot. It's probably like Aston Martin dealers. Where it's just a show room

I was torn between picking up a 14 GT and waiting on 2015. 10-14 is based on the '67 Fastback which my favorite mustang to date. Everything I have seen so far about the '15 has kind of turned me off. I don't like the Mustang II looking rear and don't care much for the Fusion like front end so I picked up my 14 and called it a day. If the 15 comes out looking like ***t then get ready to pay a premium on the remaining 14's lol.

Todays new V6 is yesterday's GT. They aren't something to mess with, though in a completely separate league from the 5.0. Now as far as mustangs go, a 4cyl is the line for me. I know the SVO was one heck of a machine, but there's something about a 4cyl that doesn't fit in the phrase "American muscle". The new 3.7s can sound pretty sick with exhaust work, but the 4cyl..... probably not. I'm not hating, but I'm now throwing my arms up and rejoicing either.

All this over a comment I made that was obviously misread. Go reread what I said again "most domestic V6s" which I still hold true given my background, granted mostly GM V6s. I wouldn't talk down the sound of the 3.7L Mustang because honestly I haven't heard one that's had work done to it and given my situation I'd be more likely to own an I4 / V6 Mustang anyway (although I'd love a V8). Being that I work for Ford and live in the heart of the Big3, I tend to see a lot more tuned V8 models of each make. Given my exposure, I still contend I haven't heard many domestic V6s that sound that great, but I have heard some I4s that sound great for what they are, mostly in the factory turbo cars.

I'd prefer that over the terribly placed cup holders in the current model

I just traded up to 14' Gt from an 11' 3.7. My V6 had exhaust work done and my GT is stock. The 3.7 sounded better than the stock GT. The reason that you don't notice many 3.7's with work done is because everyone mistakes them for V8's. Mine was loud and sounded like a V8. As far as I am concerned 2011+ 3.7's ARE yesterday's GT. Performance wise, very similar. Except you can get a really nice v6 Mustang these days, every cosmetic option avail on GT I believe. 6-speed manual, still fun. It's not going to give you the same experience as the GT without big money upgrades but even, 3.7 is still quick.

Look at it like this, if you had $25k-$30, wanted a 2 door sports car, what would you buy???

Would you pay $25-$30k for a 200 HP Toyotabubaru BRZFRS ????

Crapmaro V6?

Charger (V8 V6 it won't have a HEMI at that price, it don't matter)?

Challenger V6 ( Dodge should have badged that as the "Spectator", you ain't challenging anyone)?

Korean throw away car? (Comes with a 100k warranty but it won't matter, it will burst into flames after a few runs down the strip).

Get the idea? Mustang 3.7 that starts at $22k for over 300HP leaves all of the competition in the dust, not even close. Get into the $25k-$26k range for a premium with options and you have a damn nice car, not only a fast one. A few thousand in perf parts and it's a legit muscle car if you ask me.
