The interesting aspect if the cost/performance ratio. Yes, the M4 is faster but it is also $20k+ more expensive than a GT with performance pack. It better be faster. But then again, is it really $20k+ faster?

Performance cars are based on both, They have all been like that, Both price and performance.

Ps: If you want to get a discussion going fine, Great, Thas why were all here, We like discussing cars, But were not here for an argument, Not on purpose anyway, Theres nothing interesting about it, Thats why theres Trolls, Bring that shite somewhere else.

@v8supercar1 Nobody compares performance cars based on price. They are always compared based on performance. If they were only compared based on price then a GTR or Corvette Z06 would never compare with a 458 or a Huracan. Unless you're in the market to buy one, price doesn't matter on an online comparison.

@BR2+ Oh so now we are gonna get banned for comparing cars and arguing/discussing which one is superior or inferior. I put forth my argument and I suggest you do yours. Its pretty simple. And if you don't like the way I started the thread then don't post at all. Others seem to find this just as interesting as I do.

That would be more interesting. But numbers are only part of the story. A gt500 will shake and vibrate and wear you out. Something fanboys who never have and never will drive, won't know about.

@lamboboy: If you want to compare a mustang to a BMW m4. Then atleast compare it to one thats somewhat close in price, and thats the GT500.

To be honest, Thats a dick move, If your point was to get an argument going, Id say thats cause to get banned, Thats a Troll move.

I just wanted to get an argument going. Success. On a serious note, my money is on the M4 every damn time. This Mustang is even heavier than the last one and has only 20 hp more. While M4 is lighter than M3 Coupe and much more torque. Also the Mustang has what a 6 speed auto against the M4's 7Speed dct? I'm no Mustang hater i think this car beats the M4 hands down in looks department, infact i want to make love to that butt, BUT when the last gen 5.0 Cayote came out and it got close to the M3 e92's track performance, people were losing their minds and everyone was expecting the "next" mustang gt to leave the M3/m4 in the dust. So therefore i find it quite amusing that the mustang gt is still the underdog. I dont see no big improvement. I should wait for the official tests before passing judgement but really common sense says it will have trouble even staying close to the M4, let alone beat it. BTW the E92 M3 coupe was GORGROUS.

Hey man, I also found out the 2018 Huracan SuperLeggera beat the 2018 991.2 GT2..............

What kind of comparison is this? One car costs twice as much. I'm not a "Stang Fanboy," but I know $5-10K worth of Mods on a 15' "Stang," and you got a M4 Killer.

the M4 kills the mustang gt just like i imagined.

lol... there's no laptimes nor straight line speed comparisons, and you just believed in whatever the computer told you.

@Piorun:

GT-R? What does a 100k GTR have to do with a 30k Mustang??
