They can keep their retail therapy, we have configurator therapy. It soaks up just as much time, you can get your "help" in your jammies, and provided you don't go through with a purchase, it's much, much cheaper.

Ford's 2011 Mustang configurator is now up and taking virtual orders, and to go along with the pony car's movin'-on-up attitude, there are some increasingly swanky options. But remember, the challenge isn't just to see how expensive you can make the car, it's how expensive you can make the car you'd actually want to buy. The best part about it: everybody wins. And did we mention it's free?

      The Brembo brake package is free when you configure a GT without the premium package. Is this an error?
      • 4 Years Ago
      With all the bells & whistles which I would have to have came in at $ 45,000.00 big ones.
      Well lets see , what else can run 12:70's with a back seat and a convertible top for the same or less mula ?
      EUREKA ! A 2011 Z/28 !

        Ooh this is a fun game!

        With all the bells & whistles which I would have to have came in at $ 65,000.00 big ones for the Z/28.

        EUREKA ! A 2013 BMW M3 (I6 turbo!)

        Ummm...except that as of right now, the Z28 is vaporware. Chevy hasn't even officially confirmed it, let alone release an estimated price for it.

        This is the best Pony Car you can buy, for any amount. The Camaro doesn't compare, and the SRT-8 Challenger is far too expensive...you're almost in GT500 territory on that one.

        Further, as soon as Chevy drops a Z28, Ford will drop the Boss 302. They'll up the ante again...you think that new 5.0 is tapped out at it's current HP rating?

      Mine came out to $37,000 even. hmm...
      • 4 Years Ago
      Where is the option for the Track Pack???
        • 4 Years Ago
        That was the first thing I noticed! Also, when I tried a base GT, it offered the Brembo package as a zero cost option. That would be nice! I'll be checking back later to see if things have been fixed.

      41 grand for my candy red GT Premium convertible with a decklid spoiler. Hmm, I wonder how long it would take for my to recoup that money in tips with the speed at which I could now deliver pizzas...
        • 4 Years Ago
        Or 33,025 for a V6 with a 6-speed manual... hmmm
      • 4 Years Ago
      text me when they make a good looking 'stang. ;^)
      • 4 Years Ago
      When does the Performance Package for the V6 come out? That's the option MotorTrend said the V6 they tested had, i.e.: GT suspension, brakes and tires.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I think the GT suspension they're referring to is the PREVIOUS GT suspension, a la, 2010 GT. I think that's the standard suspension on the V6 for 2011.

      Coupe, GT, 6MT, grabber blue, Brembo's, 3.73 L/S, 19" grey split-spokes, side/hood scoops and the pedestal spoiler.

      S37,000 -- not bad.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Exactly what I spec'd out!

        I just wish the wife would let me trade in my black on black 06' GT...but she won't.
      • 4 Years Ago
      No saddle colored seats with Grabber Blue. Boo.

      But whatever, I'm too cheap to pay for more than the base model on any car. Power Windows, Keyless entry, A/C and a cd player, that's all I need. I could even survive without the power windows.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Of course this would come out on a week when I have three exams. Productivity FTL.
      • 4 Years Ago
      JIMBO seriously theres no 2011 Z28 and if it did show up it would not be fully loaded with ll that and those times for 45K. Sorry to burst your bubble.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I built a 6M GT Premium (gotta have leather seats) with the following:
      -Brembo brakes
      -18-inch "accessory" wheels (I don't like the default 19-inch ones)
      -Side scoops
      -Illuminated door sills

      And it came up to $37,558. Assuming a $9000 down payment (which I'm completely able to afford), it would be $538/month for 60 months. In my current situation, I could easily afford this and still have plenty of money left over for my last two semesters of school and other fun stuff.

      This is very tempting...
        • 4 Years Ago
        None of the factory 18" wheels can be ordered with the Brembo Package. The Build and Price isn't always the most accurate. If you want the Brembos, you get the twin-5 spoke wheels. I personally love them. The illuminated door sills come standard with the Premium as well.

        Just FYI. I've memorized the order guide. Check out the 2010+ section on themustangsource.com for more info. You'd be surprised what you'll get yourself into on there haha!

        I wish I was in the same position you are. I won't be getting a new car for a long time :(.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Ford engineers at the launch told me you can't fit the 18 inch wheels over the Brembo's, I wonder if the configurator will let your order one that way despite that.
