I really want to do something stupid.
I won't, but, geez.
What other crazy performance bargains are out there?
Ahhhh did some checking, apparently the GT350R has carbon wheels and the regular ones don't. Next question, how much better is the R? In either case, those regular 350's still offer a ton of spin out into crowd performance for the money.
as far as performance bargains right now... C5 and C6 Corvettes, FRS/BRZ are dropping pretty quickly in price, etc.
The 2016 cars listed above are listed as "base" model GT350s (as opposed to Track Pack, Tech Pack, and GT350R variants). The 2016 "base" and Tech Pack cars did not have the additional transmission and differential coolers, and will go into "limp mode" on track after 10-15 minutes. Not a problem if you're just driving the car on the street, of course, but I would not buy one of these if you intend to track the car at all. (...and if you don't, a Mustang GT is probably a better buy anyway, unless you just want to show the car off at your local Cars & Coffee). The additional coolers came standard on all of the 2017-2019 GT350s. The 2016 "base" cars also do not have the MagneRide suspension (all other variants do).
MSRP on my 2016 Track Pack car was just a hair under $59,000 with the optional stripes.
In any event, these are a lot of car for the money. Will be tempting when I no longer have to contend with rear-facing car seats.
