The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.0
6.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Ford Mustang flips its own blue-collar script with natural agility and searing V-8 performance. The 2021 Nissan GT-R is still a performance monster, but it’s no longer the value that it was when it debuted more than a decade ago.
