This Tuned Mustang Made Me ‘Realize The Value Of Journalistic Integrity’

Saleen calls it a “game changer.” It’s the most powerful production(-based) Mustang ever created. And the tuner says that if I don’t write about the 302 Black Label, I have no journalistic integrity. And if I don’t drive it, I’m hiding in a hole next to… Saddam Hussein? Okay, then.

Fox-body enforcer: Driving the very first police-spec Mustang

If you lived through the '80s and '90s, you know there was no escaping the legend of the SSP Mustang. Maybe your uncle had his doors blown off by a Florida State Trooper in a five-liter, or your dad got popped in his Porsche by the California Highway Patrol in a four-eye. Spotting one lurking in the in the tall weeds… » 1/28/15 2:17pm 1/28/15 2:17pm

Chuck Cantwell, the living badass behind the GT350R

Last year, we had a chance to speak with Chuck Cantwell, the chief engineer behind the 1960s Shelby GT350R. Cantwell was hired by Carroll Shelby himself; he worked as a project engineer in Los Angeles during the Shelby marque's golden years and was responsible for both street and race GT350s, among other things.… » 1/12/15 3:57pm 1/12/15 3:57pm

The Galpin-Fisker Rocket Is A Badass 725 HP Carbon Fiber Mustang

It's funny, but if you found me the auto show, grabbed my arm, stared into my eyes and told me that I'd see a carbon-fiber Mustang that I'd like, I probably wouldn't have believed you. But you know what? I think you'd have been right, thanks to the Galpin-Fisker Rocket. Now let go of my arm. » 11/20/14 3:38pm 11/20/14 3:38pm

Minority Report: Should the 2015 Mustang GT have been PCOTY?

This is just the second year for Road&Track's Performance Car of the Year, but the broad and largely subjective range of criteria used to crown our prom queen of performance cars has already led to a level of squabbling and outright manipulative behavior among our staff that would have shocked Machiavelli himself.… » 11/12/14 10:53am 11/12/14 10:53am

Tell Ford: Build us a Mustang ST

It's time for Ford to quit messing around and give us a Mustang ST. Take a moment to imagine everything that makes the Fiesta and Focus ST so brilliant transposed onto the already delicious Mustang. The line follows a predictable recipe that starts with an Ecoboost four cylinder. In stock tune, the 2.3-liter turbo… » 11/10/14 11:26am 11/10/14 11:26am

A 9,000 Mile Journey In A Mustang, Part 2: California To Brooklyn

This summer, I drove from my home in Brooklyn, New York, to Los Angeles and back again. It's just something I've always wanted to do. It was a special trip for me, not just because I got to see the whole country and spend time with some of my favorite people, but because the idea of driving a Ford Mustang clear across… » 10/30/14 4:17pm 10/30/14 4:17pm

The Mustang built with ridiculousness.(vid)

IMSA GTP. Add one big drop of Zakspeed Capri from Germany, and add Ford USA trying to make a front engined GTP car. It was ruthless for sure. It had power, and lightness, and it took no prisoners, especially of it's own engineers. Overall, It sucked and the lead engineer said it was the worst project he ever worked… » 10/24/14 10:50am 10/24/14 10:50am

Hennessey Will Build A 717 HP Ford Mustang For The Price Of A Hellcat

We live in a golden age of accessible and insanely overpowered muscle cars. There's the Corvette Z06 making 650 HP, and of course there's the 707 HP SRT Hellcat. But what about those poor bastards who made childhood promises to only drive Fords? Who's thinking of them? John Hennesey is, with his 717 HP Mustang. » 10/01/14 10:00am 10/01/14 10:00am
