    I'll be getting another one this summer. 2016 Black, 6 speed, GT. This is the longest I've gone without a Mustang (2 years) and I'm feeling the itch. I hated the look of the latest redesign at first. Then it started growing on me. Now I love it.

    I'd highly suggest the Performance Pack. It transforms the car.

    A standard GT is a very soft GT car. A PP car is at least closer to a sports coupe.

    For some reason, a link to this thread ended up in my email today. Coincidentally enough, I just got back from the Dodge dealer after ordering another Challenger SRT in Go Mango with 8 spd auto. Hellcats can now be had in my area for MSRP, but the deal I got on an SRT was still $22K lower. I just can't justify spending $72,000 on a car. I'm glad others can, otherwise the Hellcat would never have been developed!

    I for got the reason I clicked on this thread. I got to ride in my cousins Hellcat. It was boring though. He's scared of it. The exhaust note was nice though.

    I'm considering taking it to a Friday At The Track (road course) some time, but haven't yet.

    Of course you don't understand it, you know nothing about it and have never done it. It is pretty boring in a car as slow as yours.

    I don't understand paying extra for a performance pack option, but never taking that car to a track.

    You really might want to wait. The 2018 GT500 is going to be a monster. I am holding out another year for one and as soon as I can order it I will.
