No, not giving up the M3. Love this car!

Germany is great. Busy with work and all, but other than that eating out as often as I can and drinking as much beer as possible.

Is this being produced alongside the 350 or does this replace it?

Along side it. First time since the 60s.

No manual as of right now. Disappointing a little.

700HP?

Hope folks attending cars and coffee have quick reflexes.

With rumor of the C8 being two pedal only, things are looking bleak for those of us that want three. It does make a certain amount of sense for cars that are all about numbers to use a dual clutch though.

Is the GT350 still in production or are they just selling old inventory at this point? It didn't get the LCI styling or port injection that other Mustangs received. Just seems like they were gearing up for the 500 already and letting the 350 die off.

I believe they are. Word on the street is Gt350 production will run one more year.

The age of recreating cinematic Nichols Cage shifts in a modern Eleanor is over. Very sad days.

I am thinking they will release a manual on this one eventually. Since they are going for numbers, they probably didn't want to muddy the headlines with footnotes "1/4 mi. under 11 secs *DCT only*". Or maybe they need some more time to get the manual ready for whatever reason.

The Mustang PP2 finally matches the SS 1LE, which in turn bested the regular 350 and was slightly edged out by the 350R. By those measures, the 350 is redundant. That engine, as cool as it was, didn't have the best reputation while racing, if you care to do some research.
