2015 Mustang

It’s not a sports car.

P1010890

Real sports cars don’t have wooly power steering, air conditioning, four seats and a decent boot, (trunk).  However, all 3 versions of the Mustang come with more than 300 bhp, and reasonable independent suspension. The downside is there almost two tonnes to lug around, (3705 lbs), most of which is sitting over the front wheels.

In comparison a Porsche 911 has around 400 bhp and weighs around 3,300 lbs, (still a porker, still with all of the weight behind the rear wheels).

P1020029The Mustang isn’t a small car ~ there is wasted space all over the place.  For example there is no spare as standard, but there is an appropriate well in the boot.

The six speed auto-box is slick, but don’t bother with the ‘sport’ setting.

P1020195The suspension is forgiving, but it didn’t encourage me to hustle it through the bends on the 6,000 foot drop down from Big Bear.

A Porsche will set one back around $84,000.  You can buy a Mustang for $33,000.  Men would buy a Mustang.  Wankers buy a Porsche.  Only real men would buy a 7.
