2019 GT Performance Pack 401A convertible manual.

Why? I finally got to the point where I could afford it. I'm pretty fiscally conservative and didn't want to buy another sports car until I could pay cash for it and set it up the way I wanted without any discomfort. I'd driven the Mustang GT a lot because Avis kept giving them to me as rentals. I liked it. But I did want a forced induction setup. My wife decided we needed a convertible (a small cost to get an enthusiastic green light IMO). We settled on the following:
the car (above)
GT350R brake package
wheels to fit over the brakes (19x10 and 19x11) and Pilot Sport 4S tires for those wheels
Roush phase 2 supercharger
possible additional cooling if problems are observed either with the supercharger or diff/transmission
ceramic coating

Here she is with only the wheels/tires done.
Hey, you young whippersnapper, If you do not belong to AARP you're not a senior!!! :)

I just turned 50. I have a 2018 GT PP1 and had a 15 Ecoboost before that. I had a Mazda 3s before this, nice car but got bored with it. Bought the 15 because I like the looks the of Mustang over the Camaro and it's handling over the Challenger. It was fun but I decided to take it up a notch and got the 18. I like the sound of the Coyote over the V8's in those other two. Now, if they still made the Firebird, it would of been a tougher choice since I've owned two of those in the past. I also like the aftermarket choices for the Mustang and plan to do a number of things to mine like a Roush phase 2 and some suspension work.

2019 GT Premium 401a PP2
Just turned 31. 2019 GT Premium 401a PP2. Got hooked on cars when my cousin took me for a ride in his SN95 drag car he built. It was a nitrous car wit a 433ci World block. It ran 8's on spray. I was 13 and he launched it and rode the wheelie bar after a guy in an Civic was talking crap at a red light lol. Never seen the Civic again haha. Went to a trade school for high school for automotive technology and got even more hooked. I've had a few cars but my most recent before the mustang was a 13 Hyundai Genesis coupe. Went to the tail of the dragon with a large group of Genesis owners and got hooked on the twisties hence the PP2. I got the Genesis in 13 CPO and when the S550 came out, I knew I had to have one. 6 Years and countless hours of overtime later, I bought my first brand new car and I don't see myself ever getting rid of it.

My build thread is here. https://www.mustang6g.com/forums/threads/scarlett-2019-ruby-red-pp2-build.120378/

Okay, I don't qualify, but I was wondering how many forum members under the age of 62 own S550 Mustangs.
I'd like to know your approximate age, rather you have an Ecoboost or a GT, and why you chose a Mustang.

I'm not associated with ANY company, marketing research, or any data collection firm. I just thought that since there was almost the same question for seniors, I'd like to know how the S550 fares with non-seniors, and why.

Have fun with it.

I'll even start out.

I'm 65+, I have a 2019 GT Premium PP2, and I got it because I loved my 2013 GT premium Brembo, but the 19 PP2 took care of issues I had with the 13's suspension.
I have a 2020 PP2, I’m 51, use to race mustangs when I got my first 1990 LX,

59.5 here, and love to drive my 18 GT 10spd, fast! IMO, it is an excellent high-speed car. Also, enjoy going to the local 1/4 mile track, 12.54 is my best so far. Even though I drive for a living, I have no problem driving around looking for roads to let it, and me, breathe!

'19 ShadowBlack GT Premium401a, PP1, ActiveExhaust
48

Got my first one in 2014 as a leased ingot silver 2015 EB premium, 201a, 6MT & shaker audio. I loved that to death.

Then traded that in for a lease on a white platinum 2017 EB, 201a, 6MT, safe&smart, &shaker.

When the lease on my 17 was ending, I could not find another 6MT EB to lease anywhere. I ended up going used route and last year I got a Shadow black 2019 GT PP, 6MT, premium, 401a, safe&smart, active exhaust, and B&O.

For all it's worth, I loved all of them, including the 2.3 turbo.

59 with a 15 V6 I bought used in 18. I wanted to change my daily driver to something more fun. I was choosing between the V6 and Ecoboost and didn't even consider the GT because of gas mileage and mistakenly thinking I would be OK with 300 horsepower. After joining this forum and going to local meets, etc., I have had some regrets about not getting a GT. I've done some mods (wheels, exhaust, suspension, Sync 3), but I'm working on convincing my wife I need that GT. :)
Given this thread has been resurrected, I'll mention that two months after posting this I traded the V6 for my '19 GT. Without much pushback from her. :clap:

Man, I swear, it's a weekly occurrence where someone at a gas station tells me "I love your car! I'd have one if the wife would let me."
