Hi guys, what's up? First time user here, hope you guys are friendly...! I'm sure I'm going to be asking some generic questions here that I may be able to find some answers to with a search, but I'm under a ton of time pressure right now as a result of moving, starting a busy new job at a startup, and now my previous car got totaled by a witless @$$hat on FM 620 in Austin to top it all off. Thankfully since he had insurance, and since he's at fault, my company is willing to give me a fairly generous payout.
I loved her to death, but hopefully this is an opportunity to find something wholly new that I love even more.
Anyways, with the introductions out of the way, one of the cars I'm closely considering is a 2014 Mustang GT. I love the look of the current gen Mustang, and with the new one around the corner, I figure I can get one on the cheap and very quickly
... On the other hand, I like what I know about the 2015, too, but I'm skeptical of first-year-models of any car, plus, I will have to find a way to hold off on buying a car for a couple months in order to pull it off.
Any advice, guys? Also, more specific questions: Is the current gen Mustang still in production, or would I struggle to find one configured the way I want? Any idea how much I can expect a current gen to depreciate a year from now with the new generation coming out soon? Is there any firm information on when the 2015 models will be released?
Thanks a ton in advance.
P.S. For the record, other cars I'm considering are mostly in the luxury sedan realm. I'm interested in a 3.6-L ATS, but I'm not real impressed with the styling. Considering waiting for the ATS-V. I love the Stang, but the only thing it has going against it is that I want a Corvette Stingray within a year or two, and if I have a Mustang already, there is a lot of overlap there. Both are RWD sports cars that don't offer a whole lot of comfort, luxury, or a usable backseat (if any at all). So if you have any input there, I'd appreciate that, too. My timeline for making this decision isn't ideal.
