" If I wanted a cruiser, I'd get a Camry...."
I can't believe I read that at GRM, Consumer's Guide, or Forbes, maybe.
I've come close to buying a new Mustang several times over the years and have owned and driven several '60s models (including a '67 fastback with a 6 cylinder engine and 3 speed transmission) and a few of the '70s and '80s models...yeah, I know, not the same car. But a Camry? I'd buy one if I wanted to evade notice while TRYING to go 10-15 mph over the limit on a regular basis. But at least the Mustang has steering feel and is RWD.
" But at least the Mustang has steering feel and is RWD. "
Which in a car like this is meaningless.
You want steering feel and RWD in a car built for handling and performance. Not some woman's convertable bloat mobile with an auto trans.
We recently tested another of the seemingly limitless flavors of Mustang that Ford has to offer. This time, we were treated to a V6 convertible with the Mustang Club of America package, which adds a unique grille, different wheels, floor mats, more stripes, and a rear deck lid spoiler. Our test car was also an interesting color—"gotta have it green."
We ran this Mustang down the 1/4-mile drag strip at our $2012 Challenge, and were quite surprised by its 15.6-second time.
