Buy a 2011 Supercharged GT or 2016 GT?

As the title says, I am thinking about buying a 2011 mustang gt premium with tons of goodies here is the link. https://boise.craigslist.org/cto/5575652877.html

Or should I buy a 2016 mustang gt for a bit more?

I currently have a 2013 v6 and love it just want a lot more power.

Are you just dead set on buying a supercharged Mustang?

You've made a few threads about it.

Personally, I would get the brand new one if you can afford it. Then mod it yourself. I wouldn't consider buying a used Mustang that was already heavily modded, especially with forced induction.

Why not just take the money and put it into a supercharger or turbo for your current ride? New exhaust. Headers. Good tune. Throttle body. etc

C is for Cookies. That's good enough for me.

If it's a super charged car you want and you're willing to go with "used"......... why buy a potential time BOMB with no possible recourse?


Instead?


If I were you and really wanted the extra power.......I'd be hunting down a 13 or 14 GT500....... if you can find one free of the stupidity that is a warranty killing changes (that should be easy enough)........ you could extend warranty coverage through Ford's premium care and then FLOG the CRAP out of your new ride and when things inevitably break.......it's on Ford's nickel not yours.


Then again I'm not sure because you didn't say so........but would a Coyote motor be enough power without the super charging?


If you're actually considering a '16 GT..... you get a lot more than you currently have, even if does come up well short of a 600HP+ monster.


But I'm with others who have already posted.


Under absolutely NO CIRCUMSTANCES would I ever consider a used mustang that has been super charged by the owner. That's way too much faith to put in both the builder and the idea that car's engine isn't already damaged and ready to let go 5 minutes after I buy it.


Honestly without the potential to warranty I wouldn't consider even a GT500. I figure anyone who buys a 662 HP car has almost certainly beaten on it.......if not why the hell did they buy it?

Probably because he said his car is a V6.

The money used to supercharge or turbo a v6 surpasses a 5.0 with some bolt ons making similar power. I want a procharger but it's not worth it at this point :/
