2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Perhaps You Should Wait

Considering buying a Mustang, are you? As much as I love our long-term 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0, if I were in the market, I would be inclined to wait for the 2013 Mustang.

I love the new tail lights with their LED accents. There's also new HID headlamps standard on all models. And the GT's 5.0L V8 will make 420 hp, 8 more hp than the current GT. Of course, we can't forget the new GT500-inspired snout, which I love.

I'm not sure if I like the 2013 GT California Special Edition (below pic). The body kit looks a little heavy.

What do you think? Will 2013 be your Mustang Year?
