    Called our local Ford dealership and test drove the new 2015 Mustang GT.

    It was pre-owned (11K miles on it). Silver in color, and convertible. Car was automatic and came with the paddle shifters.

    They said their company policy wouldn't allow me to drive the car myself during the test drive and that their employee had to sit behind the wheel.

    Guy's a pussy - never had the guts to floor it on the super empty back roads. I pretended I was all "decided" to pay for the car in cash right after the test drive but that I had to get a feel for it myself. That convinced him to let me drive the car.

    So we turned onto this back road and I floored the heck out of that V8. Sounded glorious damn, but the punch was definitely not as heavy as I was expecting. So I floored it again from a rolling stop at the next intersection, and the exact same feeling again: fast, but certainly never took my breath away.

    I drive a 2013 Genesis Coupe. It's a V6 that makes 348 horsepower and 295 lb/ft of torque. Was expecting the Mustang GT to blow me away as it's far superior on paper, but it was far away from that.

    I let them know that I was expecting the car to be way faster. Got my driver license back and left.

    Cliffs:

    - drive a Genesis coupe with 348 hp
    - test drove the all new Mustang GT today
    - floored the hell out of it twice expecting to get blown away
    - it was fast, but certainly did not take my breath away
    - left the dealership disappointed

    Nice! Sexy car.

    I was considering the 2.0T when I was in the market for a new car last year.

    After speaking to the owners, it seemed like the 2.0T Genesis Coupe was nowhere near as fuel efficient as I was expecting. In fact, a lot of 3.8 drivers seemed to be getting better mileage. That's why I got the 3.8 GT.

    What color is yours?

    It's dope. With a tune it's badass. Even better because people don't know what a SHO is.

    That low end torque plus AWD = hnnngggggg

    I can only imagine. Not only that. Those things are sexy looking as hell too.

    Low end torque. Hmm. I feel like that's exactly what's missing when I test drove the Mustang.

    I may like the EcoBoost more?

    Thread wasn't shit until your shitty post made it shitty.

    Your shit reply is contributing greatly to making this thread shitty.

    Get the shit out of here, shit.

    The fuel economy isn't bad. Highway driving, I can get 700 kilometers on a tank pretty consistently. :dunno:

    I got mine in the Empire State Grey. Yours?

    Yea, I can see how that's the case on the highway. I do mostly city driving though - and I heard the 2.0T would be as bad the 3.8.

    Oh man, Empire State Grey. Those Gen Coupes are orgasmic looking. I fell in love with the car when I first saw a ESG Gen Coupe at a stop light.

    Got mine in Tsukuba Red:

    Leather seats are light brown:

    You may. I had a Coyote as well. Not as torquey as the ecoboost, but it has the hp to outrun it up top.

    Love the red, especially with the brown leather seats. Just attracts too much attention for me :naughty:
