Ford Mustang GT vs. Nissan 370Z | Edmunds.com
FULL Mustang V 370Z COMPARO @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=143666 When we last left the 2009 Nissan 370Z, it had just laid a drubbing on BMW's little 135i. We then proclaimed, "The 2009 Nissan 370Z raises the standard for the sport coupe segment to a new level of affordable excellence." Time to get more serious. It's V8 time. Who's in? Let's see, no Camaro, and a Challenger is not available (don't ask), so that leaves the freshly updated 2010 Ford Mustang GT, a car whose very existence is predicated upon wallet-friendly performance. Perhaps a reinvigorated veteran can take down the newly crowned king. The particulars might differ - four seats versus two, V8 versus V6 - but the mission is the same. And the 2009 Nissan 370Z and 2010 Ford Mustang GT are priced closer than you might think.
Just got my 2011 5.0L!
MANUAL TRANSMISSION, YOU IDIOTS. IT IS A MANUAL. NOT AN AUTOMATIC. Just picked it up today. Well worth the wait. 2011 Mustang GT Coyote. Brembo brakes, 3.55 gears, manual trans, no other options! Long tube headers, off road X-pipe, and cold end are first on the list!
