A base G35 is about 33K and that's still more loaded than a fully loaded Mustang GT. So yeah, I'm still pissed. Goddamn.... A V6 with about the same power as a V8..... I wonder how much asskicking it would be if Infiniti actually decided to use a V8 in that G35. But regardless..... I'm too busy being pissed off.

Uhh... here we're again... It is agreeable that a 4.6 can (and should?) make +300, and the same for a 4.0 at 210...

It is also agreeable that Fords are affordable cars. To buy, own, and in fuel (considering...)

I'm sure that Ford would love to (and CAN) give us more power but then you have cost (manufacturing and warranty), EPA, insurance (for ownership cost), fuel, fuel guzzler tax, etc...

The Infiniti buyer is not as conserned about the above so neighter is Nissan...

Some don't want a too plush car, some don't want the cost (car, insurance, fuel) of a V8, heck, some don't want a Mustang...!!!?

I don't care about fuel cost, I don't need AWD or FWD most of the time, I don't need a rear seat, I love Mustangs, especially the S197, I can afford the V8, I NEED a V8, my insurance cost is okay due to age, married, profession, clean record, etc... I'd love to have a McLaren F1, or a Ferrari, heck even a Viper or a Vette, oh, and yea the 500... but then cost comes in, plus I would not be modding those as freely and cost effectivly, and that is part of (moderate price) Mustang ownership FOR ME...

And that's key, what do you want, need, have enough $$ for? A V6 owner is a Mustang owner, like most GT owners would trade their GTs for a real GT, or Vette, or 500, or Ferrari... Most V6 owners would love to trade up but have their reasons for not...

What if a 500 owner posted how do you GT owners take the heat? I know I don't feel cheap for not beeing able to justify the money for a 500... and I think most V6 owners feel the same about our GTs...

It's all about YOU, YOUR WANTS and NEEDS and YOUR situation!!

KJ, poorer but happier

Well find out pretty soon -they're coming out with the G-45 (4.5L V8) next year. And on top of that a Skyline.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

Hyundai is also going to produce a V8 RWD coupe, hp numbers are supposed to be in mid 300hp range.

2008/2009 is going to be an interesting couple of years -that's when all the domestic and foreign ponies are going to crowd the pasture.

That's why the next Shelby is supposed to generate 600 hp.

There you go.... Alright! That's it! Everybody buy a Shelby! If you don't, then your Mustang GT is a poser Mustang! har har! Yeah! There you go V8's! That's how you take the heat!

I can't do that though.... I just bought a Vette on top of my V6 so I guess my V6 Mustang is a poser Mustang too. But that shouldn't stop you V8 guys! You guys need to represent and show them V6 Infiniti's that the Shelby V8's ain't no joke!

And remember: If you ain't got a Shelby, you're just a poser!
