Default Bros, I kinda want a GT350

So, my allocation for an M2 should be arriving any day now. However, after reading up on all the hype about the Shelby GT350, I couldn't help but be a little fascinated. I hate all the stereotypes associated with Mustangs, but I also am not crazy about the stereotypes of 911's so WTF?

From a technology and engineering perspective. The GT350 is more appealing than an M2. I can't imagine either car becoming a collectors car in the next 10 years and thusly shaking off substantial depreciation. Hell, outside of the ford Gt40 and Upcooming GT, I can't remember any American car appreciating inside of 30 years elapsed time.

Nevertheless, the car I get will be a daily driver with a some track days interspersed from time to time.

Thoughts bros?

I'd agree with the above post and say you'd have to drive both to know for sure which one you like better.

I was on the freeway the other day and a GT350 passed me. That sound alone would make me take it over the M2.

Get the GT 350! Ditch the center stripe to carry a lower profile on the road. Test drive the car first of course, as there may be something about the car you don't like.

Gee Tee Three Fiddy without a doubt, looks amazing, sounds even better, and apparently drives on a higher level than many of the current top bros bro.
