I have had a handful of these S197 version Mustangs, which I think are the best of them all, including the newer ones from 2015 onward. Yes, the newest platform delivers more in performance and handling, much closer to the Euro cars, but they look terrible IMHO. The last of the IRS Mustangs harken back to the great cars of the mid-late 60's. I have tracked both the Mustang and my 997, and they are very different but equally enjoyable track weapons. I have had 5 of these S197's, including the Boss 302 Laguna Seca, which I never should have sold. But the one I have wanted all along fell into my lap yesterday - the first year of the modern Shelby, a 2007 GT500. What an excellent car.

I plan to drive the snot out of it.
