Ok, it's a fact the GT is faster and that is just a fact. I have owned a Corvette, RX7 Turbo, M3 and I am driving a 328is now. When it came to buying my wife her next car we chose the 2012 Mustang V6 vert. The reason being is that it has great horse power for the money, it's good on gas, which means in the future, because I usually don't buy a car for just now, when gas prices get higher and yes they will get higher, we will have a fun viable car to drive. Honestly it's just nice to cruise in our V6 down the highway running 20k over the limit with the top down. I can't see me having that much of a better time in a GT. I am getting older, I have nothing to prove anymore. I don't need to beat anyone, but it's great to have the power to pass and let loose once in a while. Don't get me wrong, there was a time when I had to have the fastest and I needed to prove something, so I know what it's like and for that we have the GT, Boss and Shelby.
Now when I get my next car, it will be a Mustang too. I do believe in handling performance, so I would like a V6 with a track package and those awesome Recaro seats!! So it's all about tastes and wants, Ford has the ability to give us all what we want. As one person previously said, Ford has done a great job blurring the lines between owning a V6 and V8, so let's be glad that Ford has increased their quality and technologies so we can all be happy.
