yes-sir-ee the gt jumped from 315 to 412 in '11(even the new v6 for '11 got 305 hp), next yr the coyote is 420 hp. the 13 gt500 though is going to be 650hp/600 ft-lb!!! crazy times hp wise. Im still hoping to see a BOSS429 version return- the Coyote was designed to be seven litre capable

pos/neg, no prob, thats what I was wanting to hear- just curious as to how many folks thought it was better/worse...its all good. I know some love the 10 lights, some love the older 'retro' (me included), my least favorite was the 10, no offense to those that love'em, just not my fave...

Correction... 200 MPH now.

The 2013 Shelby GT500′s official top speed? 202 mph. | Mustangs Daily

Re: Thev 2010-up Mustang has an ugly rear end!

gross amalgamation of 4th generation melded with the 5th gen to give people the though they're getting a new look. Well I personally find it distasteful with that oriental squint to the tail lights. The 13 is a little less gross but the changes a nit too subtle...

05~09 were all the same...not my favorite, but I still kinda like the backend too. the 10+ I just cant get into in the least...its a great car, but everyone has their favorites

Re: Thev 2010-up Mustang has an ugly rear end!

I stayed up late to watch the 2010 'reveal' on the speed channel... first thing the next morning called the dealer to order a new mustang...a 2009 identical to my 06, last of the pretty ones to my eyes...
the 09's still stored, never driven, flatbedded home from michigan, 4.something miles on the clock, mostly from moving it around occasionally.
a waste of a new car? yes, but by the time the 06 dies, a mustang might cost >50k, might be uglier yet, yada yada yada... I'd always said if I could go back in tim that I'd stash away a new 69 fastback- well, THATS not gonna happen, so when opportunity knocked on my second favorite mustang model, decided to go for it...only time will tell how stupid the decision was...with a lot of unexpected trouble in '08, really wish I just wouldnt have done it, sure woulda been nice not having that payment, but its still here.

I simply dont like what they did to the 10 backend. some love it, some probably hated the 05, to each his own, right
