They will bump to 440 or 445 in year 2.
AGREED!!!!!!

The v6 and ecoboost models are a disappointment to me, GT is only one that isnt a total disappointment.
I agree, the 4 cylinder better have great gas mileage to make it worth it! I sure don't want to pay for the premium gas prices just for a turbo. At least my 2014 V6 is pretty close in performance with the newer 2015.

Since I don't track, I purchase this over a Chevy Z28.......but the Shelby GT500 would still be my first choice!
I agree. I noticed the Hellcat release too and it has very impressive numbers. I am not nor have I ever been a Challenger fan, but this is a major hit to the Shelby crown.

Maybe the current generation of young people will grasp onto the new styling and HP, but to many of us old timers, it's just more of the same stuff but at a higher price tag. On the other hand, if Ford would have pushed it to 245-250HP, and tried to open up sales by including an AWD version, I could see sales hitting 130-150,000. I can't count how many times I've heard people comment that they'd buy a "stang" for themselves or sons/daughters if AWD option was available. I could be wrong....just an idea thought.

They're shooting for a 500hp N/A 5.0 in the GT350. It will be a corner carving monster. And from the video, it is VERY good at that!

I don't think so.

Shelby wasn't only known for big horsepower drag racers. The GT500 did a good job fulfilling its legacy and now a new GT350 will do the same. It's a different type of car with a different emphasis.

I would strongly consider a GT350 in a few years. Based on the recently posted videos, the supposed "R" models sounded absolutely fantastic too.

The old GT350 did well on road courses, better than the GT500. Ford is following suit with the new car.

2015 Mustang GT, 435HP

So, with the 2015 being 435HP, what do you think it will run in the 1/4 mile? I know it weighs a little more than the previous models, is it worth the upgrade?

There is an S550 section. This isn't it.

If you're ever in northeast TX give me a holler. I'll take you by his gravesite.
