2012 Mustang: GT, Boss, GT500?

I am trying to weigh my options here and these are the cars I can afford and purchase right now. I am going to either get a GT with the Brembo package, 3.75 gears, HIDs, and navigation new from Ford or a new/used Boss 302 if I can find one around here. The other option is picking up a used 2010 GT500 for around as much as I would pay for the Boss or if I really wanted to stretch it wait till the 2013 GT500 comes out and say hello to 200mph+ and 650hp.

I still have the old 1990 5.0 that was my first car and if I get the regular GT I am going to do something crazy with that such as a complete engine rebuild and installation of a built C4 auto.

I would love the Boss but I do not like how it is a cloth interior and I can't even get navigation as an option, it seems very basic inside which is what is driving me to a GT500 or loaded GT.

I am just looking for some opinions, do any of you have any personal experience with the GT or Boss?

Thanks for any replies!

That's what everyone keeps telling me ahhh!

I am going nuts trying to make this decision, if i get the Boss then I am not even sure what color I should get...race red to match the Ninja maybe?

I am going to check one out tomorrow, I am hoping to make a final decision then and maybe I will be posting up pics tomorrow if I decide to pull the trigger.

Don't worry about what I may or may not have to spend on a car. Ask yourself this...why would I bother wasting my own or any of my fellow gearheads time making a thread about a car I cannot afford? For all you know I could be a rocket scientist...

With that being said...I am kinda sketched out to buy a "new" Boss with 30 miles on it. What that leads me to believe is they either let people take it out for test drives and possibly beat the crap out of it or maybe a manager at the dealer decided to take it home for a day or two.

Am I just being overly cautious with my concerns? If I am buying new I would ideally want 0 on it or under 5, but this is my first new car so I don't know how it really works.

That car is amazing, but if I was going to get a car that wasn't street legal I would probably have to go with the Boss 302S.



EDIT: Just found out the Boss 5.0 has a fully forged rotating assembly capable of supporting way more HP than the regular 5.0...I think my mind was just made up for me.

It crossed my mind...I just love Mustangs in general and would love to have a new 5.0 to compliment my old 5.0. I haven't checked to see what kinds of deals are out there for a Z06 though, I'll do that right now.

If you're going for something to be fast, Z06. If you're looking for something quick and DD able, Mustang. For as fast as Corvettes are I don't think I could get used to DD'ing one. Way too low and no space.

Yeah that is exactly what just went through my head. The car is definitely going to be a DD unless I end up keeping my Miata, which is getting jacked up on coils and getting studded blizzaks mounted on it for the winter.

I have been DD'ing the Miata for over a year right now though so I guess the corvette would be pretty comparable...the Miata is an absolute blast to drive around though especially with no power steering.

Then you're used to driving something with no room. Get a Z06.

I think the Ford GT is just a little bit more than your Countach there.

I just found an '06 Z06 with 24k for $39,000, that's not too bad at all...gonna be a tough one.

Corvettes are a **** ton easier to DD than a miata from my experiences.

..how did you guys know that i own a countach....

you can say what you want about my car..but hey..i am in my early 20s..with a successful business..own multiple toy cars that people would dream of even sitting in..i think i did pretty well for myself.

actually speaking of which..i took advantage of the recent "good" weather that new england got recently and took out my countach in november. Took it down to newbury st in boston (boston's version of 5th ave, rodeo drive, the strip..etc.etc) on black friday. Car got a lot of attention. Came out of nike town and there was a FLOCK of people surrounding my car. When i took off..i noticed some cars started following me...as soon as i got onto storrow/93...they could not keep up with the bull

You seriously don't remember posting the thread in which you got torn a new ******* for supposedly dropping something like $50k on a clutch job?

oh wait this is countach kid? that bought the broken down countach spent like 60k fixing it then leaves it in his garage all day and will not drive it because he is too scarred to break it? when leaving it sitting all the time is the exact type of thing that ruins cars.
