IN GERMANY! The American-made Ford Mustang beat out German's own top sellers, albeit only by a hair. The Auti TT sold 708 units, and Porsche 911 sold 752 unites, but the Pony had 780 units sold this month.
Both the GT and the Ecoboost are more expensive than the TT, but delivers 435 and 310 (respectively) HP to the TT's 220.
The 991 outprices the Stang by about double, which makes the Mustang more accessible.
This is just one month, and all three vehicles have been in a tight battle since the start of the year. We have yet to see where this trend is heading.
When I tell self-proclaimed car enthusiasts that I own an Ecoboost Mustang, 9 times out of 10 the next sentence out of their mouth is as follows: “Why didn’t you buy the V8?”

On April 17th, 1964, Ford introduced a car that would become legendary. The Ford Mustang. Despite forecasting less than 100,000 sales in its first year the Mustang was an instant surprise hit: between the now infamous ‘1964 and 1/2' model year and the 1965 model year Ford sold over 650,000 Mustangs, making it the company’s most successful new car launch since the Model A.
The original Mustang became an instant classic, and at the time was available with either an inline six cylinder or a Windsor V8. Interestingly enough, the Mustang name was first used by Ford on a 1962 mid-engined concept powered by a V4 engine. That’s right, folks: the 4 cylinder Ford Mustang outdates the V8.
