Both the Porsche 911 and the Ford Mustang have been around since the mid-1960s.
The Porsche 911 Carrera GTS and the Ford Mustang GT have some similar specs, but different engineering and a big difference in the price tags.
For the money, it’s hard to beat the Mustang.
I like Porsches, always have. I call the legendary 911 my “drive for my life car” — if I had to drive for survival and didn’t know what I’d be up against, I’d grab the keys to a 911 and not look back.
But I also like Mustangs. Classic American muscle. But also exhilarating to drive. Once I’d driven for my life in a 911, I might start looking for a Mustang to celebrate with.
Until recently, and despite Ford’s re-invention of the Mustang as a globally popular sports car, I thought of the 911 and the Stang as occupying different universes.
And then I drove them more or less back-to-back. And not just any 911 or any Mustang. I drove a GTS and a GT. Some serious metal, some serious motors, some serious power.
Here’s how it went:
