The ‘4’ in Carrera 4 denotes that it is All Wheel Drive. After just purchasing this new car, I record my very first reactions to it. I talk about the hardline negotiating process and a lot of unfettered joy and happiness.

by on Dec.19, 2014, under Garage, Podcast

PWN Garage DoorDon’t be confused by the beginning of this episode: this is a review of the 2015 Mustang Fastback. Also this episode takes place in Las Vegas and though I may sound frustrated by my experiences, it all works out for the better in the end.

As usual, I have jumped into this car without knowing much about the details but we learn as we go. This 2015 Mustang Fastback came with a 2.3litre EcoBoost 4 cylinder engine (310hp with a turbocharger) mated to a 6 speed automatic transmission with paddle shift. This is a 2 door, 4 seater, front engine, rear drive coupe priced at $37,000 as tested.
