Been thinking of buying a 2015 or newer Mustang GT and selling the 996. Not sure why, aside from I’ve never had a V8, and it would be nice to not pay the Porsche tax (both in people thinking I’m a douchebag and parts prices), and I really like the current generation Mustang.

Obviously the Mustang is faster, and practicality wise it’s probably a wash. The Porsche has a huge trunk and that backseat to store stuff, although the Mustang has a fold down seat to fit longer stuff.

On the other hand, I didn’t grow up wanting a Mustang. I always wanted a 911, and have enjoyed having it, and I’m sure I will in the future as well. Also, my Porsche isn’t going to depreciate any more, where the Mustang still has a long ways to go before it hits the bottom. It would be nice to be able to go places without everyone having to comment on my car and how “it must be nice” or “how much money do you make” etc.

I could probably make the swap for around $7000-10000 investment.

What do you think, Oppo?
