The weight gain disappointment could have easily been offset with another 30hp, 50hp and this would have been a must have car or if it had shed a couple hundred pounds.

Bottom line for the Mustang is it needs to beat the 1le around the track and in a straight line end of story. line em up.
This is a very interesting test of the 2015 GT Performance Pack car and the 2015 Camaro SS1LE. The Mustang GT looks good, but certainly not best in this rather rigorous comparison. Pobst did a similar test - in 2011 - between the 2011 GT and the BMW M3. He is a very good driver and gets everything there is out of the cars. A "lesser driver" might find the 2015 Camaro easier to push then the 2015 GT.
