2015 Ford Mustang GT: Why I Don't Drive It

June 3, 2015

2015 Ford Mustang GT

In an earlier update, James wondered why no one was driving our 2015 Ford Mustang GT.  Well, here's my reason. Scratch that. Here are my two reasons.

I'll get the obvious out of the way first: It's ORANGE.

Sorry, but if I can help it, I'm not driving an orange car.* And I can help it.

The second one is the ride. I'm not driving it on a race track. I'm driving it home, and my drive home takes me along the 405 Freeway and over all of its misaligned concrete slabs. I've driven plenty of stiffly sprung and thoroughly rigid cars, but there's something about the combination of this Mustang's substantial heft and the suspension tune that causes it to pogo from slab to slab and I'm not having it.

Your commute home, and what you're willing to sacrifice to clip a certain apex, will certainly differ, but for me, I'm done getting bounced around.

*various and assorted examples of 911 RSRs, BMW 3.0 CSLs and Lamborghinis not withstanding.
