I asked about a used GT350 at a Ford dealer and he point blank said no drive without firm deposit. I told him to go suck a bag of dicks. I am not spending $60K on a car i cannot drive.

This alone is why CarMax exists. They have a bunch of GT350's.

Oh lord. Just test drive a GT, make vroom vroom sounds and pretend like it has less torque.

The GT350 motor is a totally different animal. The one I drove had a weird clutch, but it was a CarMax car with 20k miles, so who knows what it's history was.

I realise there is a difference between the Coyote and the Voodoo. Never driven the Voodoo but the Coyote surprised me in regards to the revs it likes. i mean, it's no S2000 but it's not all bottom end torque either, tremendous engine.

My understanding is the Voodoo likes way more revs and won't pull as hard below 4,000RPM but i heard one on the throttle a few months back and dear me it was a hell of a noise.

GT350 is intoxicating. Drove one a few weeks back, and it spoiled me! Fantastic car.

It really is but i do wish they offered a proper quality interior, even for a hefty price, i'd pay it. let's say 10K for Alcantara and higher quality leather and plastics.

It's an awkward interior. Even if it were made of the best materials, it's still weird. But the engine sounds fantastic, even if it eats more oil than a rotary.

I respect not buying a vehicle without driving it first, but I believe that viewpoint is becoming more and more old fashioned. A good example is all those whom order a vehicle before it's even released. These days, this practice is downright commonplace among enthusiasts!

All someone has to do to obtain a test drive, is display a serious intent to purchase the vehicle FROM THAT DEALER. The rarer (and higher-demand) the vehicle, the more you'll have to convince the dealer you're serious. That's why nearly anyone can test drive a Honda Accord; yet test driving a Ferrari requires a lot more proof of serious intent.

Car in question is USED. $60k for USED & can't drive it? That's just STUPID.

Aren't they doing the same with the Supra?

At least you can just go drive a Z4 at any BMW dealer. It's close enough. Driving a regular GT Mustang isn't nearly the same as being able to drive a GT350.

The Golden Mustang. Looking forward to all the NO TEST DRIVES, BITCHES! on the new GT500. Once it's out for a bit I may go try to drive one. I bet even showing up in my Hellcat = no test drive for me.

So I recently looked at a 2020 Supra and a 2018 M240i (10k miles).

I ended up buying the BMW.

Same engine, 30k cheaper, has back seats and a trunk, and you don't feel claustrophobic in the car. Plus I don't bang my skull on the frame every time I get in the M240i.

Oh and the biggest reason, the M240i comes in Manual.

I'm not going to knock anyone who buys a Supra, because I think they're nice cars and I love the rear end, but I just don't see the current appeal against the comparable BMWs. If I had a choice between a 2020 M240i and a Supra, I'd still get the M240i.

Just my 2 cents.

I saw another stock Mk5 Supra on the road this past weekend.

I got way to jaded seeing all those nutty Supra builds at SEMA, ruined stock Supra's for me.
