    This just in: the GT350 is incredible.


    In other news, water is wet and the sun is bright. Stay tuned.

    man these reviewers and the ability to drive a manual car is very disappointing.

    Basically if you wanted cup 2s on your non r you have that option.

    Then they say more than just an alignment change and cup 2 s is responsible for the uptick in performance. Which I, honestly am not sure of.

    Very jealous of the stereo, but otherwise I think it’s just the camber plates and cup 2s changing the character of the car.

    Tires obviously a big one. Camber helps, supposedly the wing is pretty good, and the new damper tune might help a smidge. But you're probably right.

    Would like to have seen the DCT as a option to bolster sales.
    There are fans that prefer the DCT over a traditional manual.

    Autoweek's only negative point:

    CONS: Partially blocked-off grille looks a little wonky

    Really? So strange..

    Not sure what you were looking at but this 2019 GT350 is a much improved automobile over the previous 3 MY's with the R model really much the same as in previous years therefore not much to improve upon that outstanding vehicle.

    Have you driven one of these outstanding GT350/R's lately!

    :)

    If your looking for a 2 peddle DCT for the GT350 this car is not for you and suggest that you need to move onto a Mopar or Chevy product for an automatic transmission choice.

    Or just about any other Performance car, right?
    Seriously, not saying get rid of the manual.
    Just offer the DCT....or should buyers of the GT500 follow your advice?

    The DCT would compliment the GT350.

    While you and i don't agree on much, you are absolutely right here. Z06 sales sky rocketed with the introduction of the C7 A8. It makes sense from a business perspective and it will also allow them more money to put into development of other stuff based on the 350.

    ..... I’m glad people know my car isn’t an auto because they didn’t make them that way.

    I feel like the gt350 is all about the experience. Now that the 500 is a trackable car as well I feel like it can be the number generator with the auto trans and all the horsepower. It still doesn’t have 8000 rpm and it still doesn’t have that surgical shift feel.

    Not making fun of the GT350 just some of the test drivers in the different videos. The GT350 is the best Mustang being made wish I could afford to buy one. Yes I have driven one
