I am a pro-Ford, pro-Dodge, pro-Chevy guy and really enjoy seeing all three ramp up their muscle car lines. In other words, I have no bias for or against any of the three. This is the first Ford product (other than my '28 model A) and it has been a blast so far. Excellent power, the stability control has saved my @$$ and my kids can't wait until I die so they get to drive it! I have no plans to ever get rid of this one. I highly recommend it to people looking for a long term addition to his/her garage and to those who enjoy weekends with nice weather or taking a car to the track.
Purchased my 2010 shelby coupe only a few days ago, drove it back from Toronto to Montreal, have logged some mileage in a short period of time. As of 4 days of ownership compared to the 04 heavily modified mustang cobra I built and drove as a summer car for 6 yrs. I am pleased with the direction of this generation of mustang. Stock for a car of this weight it is well composed, responsive, comfortable and looks hot. Hats off to Ford for being able to make a live axle work. A few upgrades and this car can further defy the reality of its weight significantly. Pleasure and easy to drive, gas mileage is surprisingly good and the overall driving experience has delivered the mustang into a new era
This model is much better than the 2006-2009 models and so much better than the Mustangs of the 1980's era. Ford SVT finally put out an exemplary product that you can feel confident about. The GT500 is a performance level vehicle for under 50k with daily driver characteristics. Transmission, engine, suspension and interior build quality are equal the euro models. Many compliments by others-body lines, wheels, brakes, exhaust etc. My only suggestion would be to swap out the Goodyear rubber for a better product. Otherwise, an exemplary product and improvement over the past Shelby models.

As you would imagine, it's not at all difficult to roast the rear tires on a launch and ruin a good quarter-mile run. Luckily, the clutch uptake and throttle progression are intuitive and easy to learn, so a quick run is as available and repeatable once you know what to do. Listen and feel your way through the first 60 feet and don't botch a shift and a low-12 is possible.
Soft initial bite with moderate idle stroke. Once into the meaty part, these brakes are tremendous and fade-free with ample modulation, exemplary fade resistance and near-zero ABS hum or flutter.
Although we didn't have a proper skid pad on which to test, there was a smaller-diameter one available. We learned it was very easy to overburden the front tires and find terminal understeer at this relatively low speed. At higher speeds (60 mph or faster), it's possible to "drive through" the understeer with generous throttle application, and hence, glorious, gratuitous oversteer.
