I drove one of the Coyote engined 2011 Mustangs a friend owns a few months ago. Really liked it, although, my overwhelming impression of the car was that it was best suited for cruising rather than driving aggressively. All that power, and all I wanted to do was drive it slowly.
Congrats on the new car. I approve, most def!
Can't wait to hear more about the ride and how it came to be in your garage.
Thanks! It's definitely not a Japanese or Euro drive.
The thing is, is just getting used to it. It is fun to drive just all-out, wide open in a straight line -- Winding it up in sport shift mode in first gear, listening to that awesome exhaust note howling, and not even to 6 grand on the tach and you feel like you're within a hair of being out of control, makes you WANT to get into second gear. Lol
Cruising is definitely in this car's DNA. However, combined with my experience of driving sporty little 4 cyl FWD's, it is rather easy to throw this big, heavy piece of American muscle metal around the curves at right nice speeds. And surprisingly, the car sticks really well. So far I'm impressed. Not my Prelude, definitely not the G35. But an all new kind of impressed.
On my list currently - learning how to drift properly ----- still a learning experience.
