General Vehicle Comments



2011 Mustang GT/CS

"California Special"

#946 of 2509 Coupes

#144 of 383 manufactured in Red Candy Metallic


My new 2011 Mustang GT/CS--a limited editon model #946 of 2509 coupes--assembled on May 17, 2010 at Auto Alliance International. Total production of the GT/CS including 1,133 convertibles = 3642. The 2011 GT/CS production run of 3,642 is more limited than the original 1968 California Special (3,867 units) that was built by Shelby Automotive. The 2011 Mustang GT/CS is even more limited than the 2011 Shelby GT500 (5,100 units) and the 2012 Boss 302 which total production is believed to be slightly more than 4,000 units.

Of the 2509 coupes produced, only 383 were painted Red Candy Metallic. Red Candy Metallic was the color of the first 2011 Mustang GT/CS off the assembly line. This color was dropped by Ford in place of Yellow Blaze Metallic for the upcoming 2012 California Special model and will not be a color choice for the 2013 GT/CS so it will remain unique.

Accessories & Modifications
I added Corsa Xtreme Axel-Back performance exhaust (Part #14317) upon delivery of the vehicle. This adds 7 HP & 4lbs-ft Torque and flows 153% better and is 18lbs lighter than stock exhaust. Theoretically, this should reduce 1/4 mile time by 0.08 seconds.

I purchased and uploaded a 91 Octane Performance tune from Bamachips. This dropped my 1/4 mile time 0.268 seconds. I have the Bamachips 93 Octane Race tune and feel confident that it could have dropped my 1/4 mile time into 12.4 second range had I chosen to use it on the dragstrip. However, I preferred to run the performance tune full time since the Race Tune is not recommended for daily driver use.
