Local Aston dealer will let you test drive a 250K DB11 without a 2nd thought.
They might have gotten sick of teenagers and time wasters joy riding them.

Technically, I guess I'd call them 'nose ugly'. The butt isn't bad. I park my Lexus nose-in to the garage, and when outside, I approach the car from the side or rear, so rarely see the 'butt ugly' nose.
Guess I have to 'pitty the fool' ahead of me when I come up on them on the highway, probably not a pleasant sight.

Another one bit the dust this AM. 13-14 lowered and sounded good. Just didn't have the umph to accelerate like the little 4.2 does. Three lanes and no traffic really lets you stretch your legs a little.

If this is your DD I would go Ford.

If it's more of a toy I would go Jag..... because I just did.

I've owned a couple Mustangs over the years, old an new. I've had them as rentals a few times. They are fun, but the Jag is special.

I sold one of my Mustangs to make space for and provide the down payment on my XKR, this one:



But don't worry, I still have a Mustang in my stable and it's not going anywhere

You need to elaborate more on the ToyoStang or provide a link to somewhere with more about it. I like it a lot.

it's great to see this Ford Mustang / Jag XK commentary

I wish Ford still owned Jaguar

I owned an 07 stang, with the Roush P51B engine / supercharge & tune - around 600 rwhp the way it was set up and took it out on Fontana (200+ mph in 4th gear, legally)
that car scared the hell out of me but it was a legit car - 275 tires all around, watts link rear end, etc

also had an 04 svt cobra, 450 rwhp / 500 rwtq - also a hell of a car

I had a '06 super v8 jag - loved it

current car is a '09 portfolio XKR with 16k miles on it

it is a great car, exhaust sounds great, exterior looks near-exotic, and, it doesn't scare the hell out of me

i am partial to the 4.2 jag v8 - too many examples of blown engines I have seen first hand with the Jag 5.0 - i would not own a jag 5.0 powered car imho

Thanks! The eGarage video pretty much sums it up. 1968 Mustang, Gulf livery, Toyota 2JZ. It's my project, always evolving for the last 8 years or so. Who knows what the future has in store for it? Some links:

Abomination: The 2JZ '68 Mustang - Speedhunters

https://www.roadandtrack.com/car-cul...tang-2jz-swap/

https://jalopnik.com/this-gulf-liver...nta-1791583233

Super long build thread. All the early pics don't show up because Photobucket is horrible, but most of the 2J stuff is there in the later pages.

My favorite pic of it, Captain Slow himself approves!

But when it was finally time for me to get a new convertible after 2 years being without after selling my last Mustang convertible because I needed a 'grown-up' car with 4 doors..... Well I think I'm the reason the cargurus link is now dead. Picked up the used 2010 XKR convertible from Chambersburg, PA in May to double up the Jag count at home.

As others have posted, the XKR is still a look getter and having sported it through the mountains nearby a couple of times, it's an absolute grin machine on any kind road.

Enjoy making your choice. Cheers!

The mustang is a great car. But itís a different class of car. Iím a ford guy that owns three jaguars myself. If it was a choice. Xkr. No doubt xkr. Now if you have issues getting I. And out of a car or want a usable back seat or need a manual transmission..the ford. Otherwise xkr.
