      I really want to do something stupid.

      I won't, but, geez.

      What other crazy performance bargains are out there?

      I think MSRP was in the 50s, but there was some dealer markup going on at launch that drove them up to that price range yeah.

      These look to be the base GT350 (non-R) and MSRP was around $50k before options.

      Damn, I wonder if the oil burning issue is as bad as Car and Driver's experiences. It doesn't seem any worse than what other high RPM cars seem to go through (cough cough hondas lol)

      Fitting that your avatar is Mogatu since both GT350's are listed as "hot cars" and we all know those things are so hot right now. Were these the ones that came w/carbon wheels?

      Carbon wheels were on the GT500s I believe. Maybe they were an option for the 350s too. I don't know for sure.

      edit: googling. Looks like they came on the GT350R (track pack)

      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.

      I've been eyeing them the past couple weeks but they aren't that cheap in my area.

      Ouch. Is there a bulletin/fix? Hopefully Ford would stand behind the car if it's a defect.

      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.

      Just want to clarify that the Track Package available on the base cars is different than the GT350R.

      Regular S550 GTs are dirt cheap too... not hard to find them under $25K or even $20K with decent miles. That price differential can go a long way in the aftermarket and I don't think the Coyote burns much oil

      I believe most of the Rs also have a back seat delete if you need 4 seats. The carbon wheels on the R supposedly make it feel a lot lighter on its feet, but it's not all that different mechanically than the 350 with the track package.

      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.

      I would really think long and hard before buying one of these used, though. Even with low miles.

      My big issue with the 2016’s is what was mentioned above. They aren’t really suitable for track work stock.

      And I’d want one with MagneRide.

      But it does give me hope for a 2017 in a year or so...
