If one vehicle is better than another in every way, that sounds pretty objective to me. There are many ways in which the SS can't compete with the Mustang. It is in the numbers. But if you're talking pure aesthetics, you can have an opinion on that.

Bingo.

I came from a mustang coupe.. traded that in for my SS.

That is not the route I wanted to go... I wanted a heavy ass 4 door car to rape people with.

Is it me or is the Camaro a closer comparison than the SS? LOL I was simply stating the SS should at least be worth the test drive and considered before throwing down money on a new Mustang. Hell like others mentioned also the Scat Pak Challenger should be in running also.

Either way the 3 pony cars all have pretty stout offerings IMO and I'd be willing to bet the decision on what to go with would come down to cost, personal taste, and brand loyalty not performance between the bunch.

To answer the OP's question...I was thinking of getting a 2015 based on the new features, comforts and IRS. I like the look of my 2011 exterior better, but the interior, options and suspension of the 2015 is better, no doubt. Now that the GT350 has been announced I would have a hard time not stepping up for one of those over a GT premium.

Ford improved the car in many was for 2015. I don't think anyone can argue that.

I was shocked when I looked into values of the 2011+ GT Premium cars when I went to list mine. Even the trade in values I received were higher than I expected.

Quote:
I wouldn't say 'rapidly', I've been watching the values closely, and they aren't depreciating faster than any other 'previous generation' car.
Agreed. Which surprised me as well. With the new features and comforts I figured the 2011-14 cars would drop quickly. Like the 2010 GT with the 3v did when the Coyote came out. lmao!

They are a powdered forged rod. I wouldn't trust it over 700 rwhp even with a safe tune. Plenty of 2012-13 boss' broke motors when they reached that number. Still better than the 2011-14 GT rods though. Just not as good as a aftermarket rod.

I wouldn't care if a vette beat me in a race. The GT is a way cooler car than any vette. Different classification of car so hard to compare a mid engine, limited production bad ass to a vette. lol

I forget about the camaro. I hardly ever see them and don't like the interior at all. The exterior has grown on my. But no even close to the 2011+ Mustangs.

Seriously, I would want to cut myself if I had to see the Camaro dash day in and day out. It handles well but too many draw backs to even consider owning one.

Im talking 2016 Camaro guy as far as Im aware they aren't even in dealer lots yet. Hence I said the 445hp one with an 8 speed and iirc the 16 SS will be available with magna ride and is supposed to be faster and lighter than the 15 1LE

15 Mustang over 15 Camaro absolutely hell 15 Challenger over the 15 Camaro.........

I was not even close to serious about taking a C5 over an FGT. There is no vette I'd take over a Ford GT

The fox is fun in its own right. Very raw and extremely fast even on 10psi. Plus it gets conversation from people every time I take it out

Yeah, it is a cool car. I had one of those foxbodies. I know how it goes. But you even said you missed your Bullet. Now imagine how much more you would enjoy a 2015.

Plus you know Gomez will over pay for that couple. haha

I love the new 15 GT and the GT350.

It would be cool to drive a new 15 Gt with Auto trans as a daily driver
