What is your take on this?

(Kinda bummed out by this news)
What do you mean by 'drive' ? If you mean 'tossable', then the Mustang will have an edge. If you mean 'ride smoothness' the Camaro has the advantage. That said, that was not the standard GT that handled better. It had the track pack which included better tires and a suspension upgrade for improved handling, as well as a shorter final drive ratio for better acceleration. Not saying its not a fair comparison -Ford devised the package to better compete with the Camaro. But no (stock) Mustang from 2005-2009 will have those numbers, and many of the 2010 GT's won't either.
