Only if he is a mediocre driver. Every 2005 and newer Mustang GT is a solid 13 second car, it takes some doing to make a naturally aspirated V6 Camaro run 13's. The fact that a 2011 Mustang V6 with the optional gears will be door to door with him at the end of the 1/4 mile? That may well piss him off a bit.

not to mention we're talking similar kinds of cars, i think its kinda dumb people bash one pony car on another on looks - they are all more or less the same! - its would be a different story if they were comparing a 5gen Camaro to the current STi...

No thank you, the passenger will survive without power.
People complain about the weight yet they want things which will add more.

I am starting to believe the rumor that Chevy rated the 2011 v6 for 91 octane fuel and the 2010 Camaro v6 for 87 octane.

Exactly what I wanted to say. The marvelous car that we'd deemed as a gift from the gods barely a year ago all of a sudden isn't enough??? Gimme a break. Everyone knows that the companies don't try to renew interest for a couple of years with the overhaul every four. So what the h*** was everybody expecting?? I was actually suprised they screwed with horsepower so soon! Synergy Green was no suprise as a full time color. It was already being produced and proved to be successful in sales. Same ole song.

Get over it.

Hey GM, how about memory seats? I’m 6’4”, my wife is 5’4” I love the ability to press one button and have everything set to the way I drive after she has driven it.

He'll still take me at the track... He too has an intake, in addition to a tune. Still, it's fun to rag on him a bit to get him riled up!

While I agree with you, its like they had two differnt designers on the mustang. One guy designed the front half and did an outstanding job and then they had Stevie Wonder do the rear. They should of went with the concept rear for a real knock out car.

I hope they fix it so the HUD shows the same speed and revs as the instrument panel

Someone gets a photoshop fail for that pic

you hit the nail on the head. It's as if they forgot to finish the rear of the Stang. The front doesn't look bad at all IMO but the rear is another story. To each his/her own I guess.
