I'll rank them in terms of stock performance

2007+ GT500
03/04 Cobra
03/04 Mach 1/99+ Cobras
2005+ GTs
97/98 Cobras
99-04 GTs
94-98 GTs
Fox 302s.

If he has the dough tell him to go for a GT500 or terminator (03/04) Cobra.

^ good list.

it really depends on what your brother wants.

it doesn't take much for a Fox Body be be scary fast while it takes other mustangs much more time and money.

The best mustang so far IMO is the 03-04 Cobra. Most people on here will probably tell you the same thing. But, like HMUSN said, its all up to him on what he really wants.

What do you mean by best? and how far back? I mean my new gt500 is the fastest most powerful ever. But hell the best is subjective. do you mean looking, performance for the dollar what? To me I love the old ones. 67 fastback, gt350, gt500. But who can afford it and frankly a stock 05 gt would outperform them both. 69 mach is cool. 429 boss is bad ass. Shot I love a lot of them i like the 85 gt, last year for the four barrell. 86 is cool, first year for fi. 93 cobra will be worth so money some day becuase its the last snake with a 5.0 in it.

To me i like the 05+ for the money. it looks like the old ones without the cost. I mean you would probably pay the same for any 60something fastback in mint condition as you will a brand new one, and you got a warranty and a better car. The 08 bullitt looks like a cool car.

you got to specify a price range. v8 stangs start a 27,000 and can go up to what.... a million? lol

by the way, ill make everyone on here mad a disagree. that aint the best stang ever. but like i said its subjective. It is an awesome car for the money. looks wise i like those years but they are not the best to me. but If I could have any stang.... it would be the car from gone in sixty seconds. and i dont mean a new stang with a body kit on it. I mean that car.

what about them. fox 4 platform with less horespower, they dont count. Your right I always think in terms of the 5.0 ending with that bodystyle in 93. But either way i think the 93 cobra the last year with that body and a 5.0 will be worth some money some day.

In stock form the Mustang with the most potential is the GT500 by far.

I'd go w/ the 03/04 Cobra if I had the money. If you're on a budget, you can find a 99/01 Cobra for a good price now a days. Those would be your best bets on "right out of the box" performance. If you're really short on cash, you can get a 99-04 GT for cheap and make them pretty quick but I'd stay away from the fox body's and the 94-98 NPI GT's if your looking for good performance right out of the box...

like someone else said, if your looking for performance i would go with the fox bod. its like mcgiver's car, with a rubber and a used soda can you can make it a 9 second car.

my opinion

for looks

a badass blacked out 66-68 fastback
boss 429
70 mach1/ 69 boss 302
67/68 gt500
03/04 snake
87-93 gt hatch/93 cobra
03/o4 mach
99-04 gt/bullitt

bang 4 buck
87-93 V8
99-04 v8 (2v or 4v)
05+ gt
then every other 1

my personal favorite

old school- 69 boss 429

newer- 00 R or terminator

The 2007 Shelby GT and Roush and Saleen Mustangs were left off the list. I believe the 2007 Shelby GT would fit on the list about the same spot as a 99/01 Cobra. The 2007 Roush 427's performance should be around that of a 03/04 Cobra, maybe a little better. I'm not completely familiar with their product line but Saleen Mustangs have been competing with the Cobras for top performance honors for years. Both Roush and Saleens can be purchased at Ford dealerships.

ProCharger P-1SC, 9 psi, STD 396/383; Uncorrected 388/375; SAE 383/370.
