2018 Ford Mustang GT

2018 Ford Mustang GT

The 2018 Ford Mustang GT offers a ton of performance in a fairly affordable package. The GT pumps out 460 horsepower which is enough to cause plenty of trouble when a teenage owner leaves a Cars and Coffee event.

The Mustang GT is a quick car by any standard and provides a lot of performance for the money. Ford claims a 0-60 mph time of under 4 seconds for the 10-speed automatic version of the ‘Stang. But is this just a case of a manufacturer being over optimistic?

To put in perspective just how quick an under 4 second time is, the latest Porsche 911 Carrera S has a claimed 0-60 mph time of 3.9 seconds (although Porsche is known to be conservative with their performance times). The Mustang GT starts at $35,190 versus $105,100 for the Carrera S. Now we aren’t saying that the GT will match the 911 for overall performance and build quality, but when you consider the price, it punches way above its weight class.

The folks over at cars.com wanted to see if Ford’s claimed 0-60 mph time is accurate. In the below video they take the 2018 Ford Mustang GT to a drag strip and see just how quick the pony car is. Take a look at the video and then scroll down to the comments and let us know what you think of the Mustang GT.
