That wasn't a hard one to predict Clint. lol

Keep the Hellcat and get the GT350 too. Apples to oranges. A GT350(R) is in my future for sure.
Given your level of interest in this car, I am not surprised either, Paul! Should be incredible. Anxious to hear more about these beasts.

Tuners apparently got ahold of the ECM from the GT350. See results:

Not my fault, really. Ever since my wife (then high school girlfriend) took me for a ride in her '86 Mustang GT, I was hooked. It's not often a man can blame his wife for his car addiction.

Not sure about Honda dying, but their shifter IS a benchmark for effort and feel.
Let us know how good the manual is in your new NSX.

That's a pretty cool and unique introduction to mustangs. My wife and I have been together since high school, too. Her car- a Geo metro.

Q: Why no carbon ceramic brakes?
A: I think you’ll find out later that affordability was a big part of this car.

Q: So keeping price down was a big part of that?
A: Yes. That was a priority with this car.
Nobody will complain about the price. Or at least nobody should complain about the price. :lol

The owners manual says something about shift paddles, this is new ground, still looking for that center stick thing. :wink

Nice car. Don't get me wrong, I love vintage Mustangs. My point is that much of the added weight is due to the safety features incorporated into modern cars (that, and the doo-dads which are now considered necessities).

Those who know (i.e. DBK and Cobrar) can't/won't say. Since I don't know anything, I'm free to speculate. The GT350 just revealed has 10.5"/11" wheels. The leaked parts info indicates 11"/11.5" wheels will be available on a Mustang variant. Hmmm. What could that car be?
How about upgrade wheels for this car for those who always want more rubber underneath? :cool

Headlines automotive news week of 12/1/2014:

'Big Al' claims new GT350 is merely a garner snake in the grand scheme of track cars, subsequently accuses Blue Oval of predatory pricing. :facepalm::lol
