Default The 2015 Ford Mustang Might Have Just Gained A Whole Fat Guy In Weight

Click the image to open in full size.

We know how much the 2015 Ford Mustang will cost, but we're still not exactly sure how much power it has. Ford will only say that the V8-powered GT will have "more than 420 horsepower." Let's hope it's a lot more, because we just heard that the Horse just gained around 200 to 300 pounds.

Default How Much Weight????

For the last year all I have heard is the new car would be 100's of pounds lighter. Then I hear IRS going in that right there will add a couple of hundred pounds over a solid axle (at least the weight is over the back not the front). Then I get to see the car in person at Charlotte and I don't know how they will get the new car any where close to the weight of the 2014, it is larger has a bunch more gadgets and I could not see anywhere there was a real effort to trim the weight. I know it got aluminum hood (oops current car has that already) aluminum fenders, maybe a weight savings of 5 or 6 pounds. I even crawled under the car (got yelled at for that) looking for some kind of magic weight savings, but nothing there. My guess the new car is going to be over 3800 lbs which like the extremely overweight current Camaro it will need a bunch more power to keep up. Sad part is they have said they want to gain a foothold in non American market with this car but the foreign markets value precise handling with plenty of power and a lean smooth driving car. This car does not seem to fit the mold.

Did it still have the 45lb two piece drive shaft under there? I knew this thing was going to be heavy. I'm going to get a used gt500! I don't care about handling! i want something light with tons of power so it feels like I'm about to go back in time at WOT!

With the power your can get out of a gt500 with $1,000 in mods, the extra weight won't matter. Unless the 2015 comes out with 600rwhp, a used gt500 would be my choice for fast.

Just because my weight is 220 doesn't mean I am a "fat guy" you should make this thread PC by calling it "The 2015 Ford Mustang Might Have Just Gained a Slightly Overweight Guy and Little Person in Weight."
