So to summarize: The car handles significantly better, making it a much better track car, while sacrificing next to nothing at the drag strip. I'm not seeing anything in the way of negatives there.

On a sidenote, the actual owner reviews that I've seen so far have all been overwhelmingly positive. Sounds like anyone with a Mustang will have a great car whether it's a 2015 or an older model.
Interesting new MotorTrend comparison. 2015 Mustang GT and 2015 Challenger Scat-Pack. Maybe the most interesting is the "price as tested" number Mustang $46,380 Challenger $ 39,890. Challenger also has the 8 speed auto in that price.

Looks like Challenger wins on the street and the drag-strip, but Mustang wins at the road course track. Not surprising since the Challenger is 485 HP and 475 Ft. Lbs torque. None of that matters going around sharp turns
