It won't be long until Ford designs a Mustang with independent F/R suspension and that is when hopefully the Mustang will be a formidable track weapon.
The 2010 Mustang with the Track Pack does very well on a track, thank you very much. Sure its no Ferrari F430, but it does very well for what it is. Not that it matters, the Mustang was never meant to be a track car, but there are PLENTY of Mustangs racing circuits that are incredible.

The problem with the GT-R is that it will only get better as on-board computers get better. Pretty soon that dang thing will practically drive itself.
