2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Yup, Still The Same
January 23, 2012
To be doubly certain that my esteemed colleague, Dr. Joshua Arnold Jacquot III Jr., Esq., PhD didn't have gloat-induced selective hearing, I took our longterm 2011 Ford Mustang GT for a good long listen.
The verdict? It sounds exactly the same now as it did the last time I drove it a long time and many, many burnouts ago. The muted gear whine characteristic (I think the sound has been likened to a far-away supercharger) that it exhibited when new is unchanged today. Same far-off intensity and pitch as it was a dozen thousand or so miles ago.
Never doubt the Jacquot.
