Lots Of Fun For A Few Bucks —

Test drove one when they first came out in 2002 at Performance Nissan in Duarte. They only had the one car with a 6 speed manual transmission and I had to go with the salesperson in the car. That did not deter me to give it a decent test of its performance - acceleration, handling, noise, braking, etc. This car was a great deal then and still is now. You get a lot of performance for not much dough. Acceleration is quite brisk when you stomp on it. It just squats and goes. The further you put your right foot down the more you get squished into the seat. I only got it up to about 90 on the 210 in about a one mile jaunt but that was plenty to give me an idea of what was in hand. Braking was awesome as was the handling. This is no Buick that the sad 280Z was. This is the real deal. Then there is the drop dead looks of the car. It is a joy to drive. The only drawback is that there is not much room in back. But that is the price you pay for the stiffness structure that takes up most of the room behind the seats.

Pros: Acceleration, Handling, Braking, Looks

Cons: Not much space for stuff, only room for 2 - but who cares?

Heavy and bulky for the power. Nice GT car, cruiser or even daily driver coupe. Roadster has lots of issues with the top. Interior quality could be better-faded and chipped plastic everywhere, leather crumbles with the perforations as it gets older.

Looks/Style Ranked 2003 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe Convertible RWD better.
"The overall style here is a touch decision to make, however I have to go with the classic look on the Mustang. The Mustang is a very classic, very original look. The 350Z can be compared to a bunch of foreign/Japanese models. I think the Mustang just does not look anything like any of the American models that its been compared too. The GT Deluxe Premium has a very custom feel, a very Torque-driven, high horse powered Mustang trotting in the open lands of the Midwest. When you look at the 350Z it looks like something you would see crammed on a highway in New York City that youd look past when youre bored in traffic. Everyone knows the Mustang look, and everyone recognizes the familiarity of the Mustang. The 350Z not so much."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2003 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe Convertible RWD better.
"The Mustang is not the most spacious car you can get your hands on, however it does have a bit more room compared to the very crammed 350Z. The Mustang has two rear bucket seats that offer a decent set up for passengers. The 350Z does not have anything close to that. The Deluxe Convertible has the decent size cabin and the overall chassis is longer than the 350Z so it must have a bit more cargo space to offer. Not a major sell point behind the Mustang but it DEFINITELY helps sell the Mustang compraed to the 350Z."
