    Yes about the same as current MY17 GT.
    That's pretty amazing, without a tune too

    This is a claimed number by the way.

    They also claim 3.9 for the 10 speed GT.

    either way the 10 speed and engine upgrades have really changed the car.

    its a shame the excitement is made through a box making your mind up, this is life today.
    I'm excited of the engine upgrades mind you.
    Is MY18 on still available with stick shift ?
    I expect sooner of later this will die no option but 10speed and future tranny development.
    YNWA ! off to CL 2018.

    It looks like a PP1 with the 10-speed auto

    They got 0-60 in 3.99 and 1/4 in 11.98 at 119mph

    I don’t know.

    It comes back to how you use your car.

    I maintain these mustangs make sense as a daily driver, as such what driving are you going to do?

    Sydney traffic is hard on a manual drivetrain, probably frustrating too, so I think an Auto makes sense when it’s this good.

    Much is made of manual control and with that comes the clutch relationship.

    The 17 we test drove was good but weird.

    The 18 picks up a twin plate.

    These little things might be enough to require a second look.

    In tassie, there probably isn’t a reason to go Auto other than it fast and may have better resale value because it appeals to the fairer sex in the second hand market where she who must be obeyed controls the strings.
    History is a statement, the future is a question.

    yes, I look at it from a another spare car not a daily but then again I could use a modern Pony as a daily for the brand really doesn't have that icon type of thing to me so I wouldn't care running countless k's on it.
    Manual only interests me - a daily dual cab I can understand auto being a commercial and other typical modes of vehicles but a sports performance car to me is ol skool shifting where available and yes I'm in the minority I suppose and also have no thought or care what its worth when shifting it on when the time came.
    I hear you by your post for its makes sense for the majority......
