They need to compare the 2011 GT500 to the 2011 GS Corvette. The 2011 GS gets stickier tires and the magnetic ride suspension which should sway the advantage back to the Corvette.

Thanks for posting that. Very nice writeup. Makes me feel even better about my decision to get a 2011 with the SVT option.

With it being that close id say the Mustang is the better car...4 passengers versus 2, shelby has better looks, larger trunk, more useable as a daily driver while providing identical or better road performance?

No brainer...

I think that just depends on which sort of car you're looking for. If you ask me, the 'vette is better looking, gets better fuel economy, is lighter and quicker handling. I still chose a GT500, 'cause it has a trunk and kids fit in the back.

'09 GT-500KR -Black/Black
