MT Oct. Issue: 2011 GT vs M3 on the cover

Picked up the October Motor Trend yesterday, based solely on the cover story, a Mustang GT 5.0 facing off against a 2011 BMW M3. This car continues to amaze me. While it did not win, the results make me want to sell everything and buy one. Very impressive car!

On top of that, I heard they don't do too bad in FS either....

From what Pobst says in the interview, a set of springs and shocks would put the Mustang ahead of the M3 on the track.

I'm hoping the Boss 302 is priced at 30k as has been rumored. Then I just need the wifey to agree to it and find a dealer willing to part with one at the right price.

Alot of if's, but I'm hoping.

No way will the Boss be the same price as a normal GT. There are way too many changes (changes that cost money). I hear tell (and would almost bet hard money) that it'll be between a GT and a GT500 on price.

Still holding out hope, if only based on what the commentators said during one of the Continental tire races. They acurately predicted the reveal date and launch announcments and said it was starting in the low 30s (which is slightly above a GT). As long as it starts below $36k (the torque sensing diff and Recaros are optional), I'd be cool with that, anything much above that and it'd be the basest GT I could get with the Brembo upgrade.

Stock GT with 3.73 gear and Brembo brake option, and throw a set of Bilstein's on it.

If you look at the article the GT they tested which had the Brembo brake option and 3:73 gears has an as tested price of $40,275!
Now that would be hard to price the new Boss under the price of a fully setup GT.

91 Road Racing Fox. N/A 383W. Full MM setup front and rear with Bilstein coil-overs. 14x1.25 Wilwood 6 piston fronts with Wilwood 13x1 single piston rears.

They said they got every possible option aside from the glass roof (for obvious reasons) in order to jack the price up. If you skip all the fancy electronic jazz it's considerably less for just 3.73s and Brembos.

I'd not do 3.73's, or Bilstein's, but otherwise I'm with ya.

My car stickered @ $35,390 (or so I recall). Premium Rapid Spec 400A w/Brembo (no 3.73, standard 3.31). Add a few hundred for the gears.
