Two platforms are, 13-14 GT or 2015-18 Focus ST1 One way to work is 8 minutes, 4 days a week. Also have an F150 and my 2011 Shelby (700hp). I do not want to daily my Shelby, and for long trips, the F150 is comfy and plush. The 13-14 GT/AUTO/WHITE would be an investment to daily but than 3 or 4 years from now afford me the opportunity to turbo it and have another weekend car. Son and Daughter would have a "mustang" to enter into car shows next to my Shelby. The problem I have with the GT is I don't think I could drive a "sports car", let alone a mustang on a daily basis. I did back in the day, but years of cars has changed that perspective. The GT cockpit is similar to my Shelby, and what I like about the Shelby is being a weekend car, I feel the "newness" every time after driving a slower car such as a Fusion, truck etc. If the cockpit is the same as the GT, it takes one factor of "newness" away. I think :/ As much as I would like to say I would keep the GT stock, I don't think I could. And now, I'm modding two cars...Shelby and a GT. So there's that.... Focus ST1. Simple, manual, white or grey. I like the blue but my Shelby is blue and don't want two blue cars. The Focus can be modded, but I can also drive it for 3 years than pass it off to one of my kids. Plus, the Focus would serve as training my two kids how to drive a stick. If I kept the Focus long term, there is always room for mods and more power. I have always been partial to Fords and I don't like the jelly bean looking Fusions. So that's out. Neither car will have a dedicated garage spot. So a white car seems to make sense. Stays cooler, easier to clean etc. Figured I would post up, see what other suggestions you guys have? I live in the south, no snow or nasty weather Budget is about $25,000 Buying in the next 2 weeks.
