Whether the GT500 stands up to the pedigree of the aforementioned cars or not, time will tell. I've run my Rs with the NA version. And though you can hang, the GT3 is superior. 500 vs GT2? I think it will be the same conclusion. With that said, have a look at the difference in price tags respectively. This is where Ford is killing it. Think about it. You are having the GT350R and GT500CFTP in the same conversation with the likes of the GT3 and GT2RS.Think of the naturally aspirated, manual-transmission-only GT350 as Ford's own Porsche 911 GT3 and the Shelby GT500 as Ford's 911 GT2 RS, and you'll understand both how similar and different these two cars are. Yeah, we're comparing Mustangs to Porsche's best sports cars. The Shelby GT500 is that good.
