2011 Ford Mustang Long-Term Road Test

2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: This Is Not A Mustang

October 12, 2011

Seriously, this is not a Mustang. It's not even a Ford.

That's because it's a Mazda Miata. Don't believe me? Hit the jump.

Yes, this nightmare is a Mazda Miata. A 1994-1997 Mazda Miata, to be approximate. Spotted in the Bay Area a while back.

I have to admit, from a distance it's a fairly convincing doppelganger for an early '60s Mustang. But something about the proportions just didn't sit right. It was the windshield that tipped off to its origins before I saw the cabin.

It's got an autotragic transmission, to boot.

I'm sorta baffled here. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
