Generally speaking yes. However there are a few older cars that still give more modern "performance" cars a run for their money....

here are a few in the last few decades:

2000 Acura Integra Type-R 0-60 mph 6.1 Quarter mile 14.6
1994 Acura NSX 0-60 mph 5.2 Quarter mile 13.4
1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZL-1 0-60 mph 5.2 Quarter mile 11.6
1990 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z 0-60 mph 5.7 Quarter mile 14.2
1968 Dodge Charger (Auto) 0-60 mph 4.7 Quarter mile 13.3
1986 Dodge Shelby GLHS 0-60 mph 6.4 Quarter mile 14.6
1992 Dodge Stealth R/T Turbo 0-60 mph 5.6 Quarter mile 14.0

There are always exceptions to the rules but yes sadly our mustang (even the 5.0L) will be dusted by a future car that is "run of the mill".
