2020MustangGT_800x425

Borgman Ford loves the Ford Mustang, and it’s been a lot of fun watching the iconic sports car evolve over the years. What we enjoy most about the vehicle isn’t the goosebump-inducing sound they make when they fire up, the thrill of setting up for a corner or even cruising the West Michigan lakeshore with the top down in the summer. Our favorite aspect is the community – people of all walks of life connecting over the love of this American icon.

With how open and welcoming the community is (and all of the reasons listed before that) it’s no mystery why the Ford Mustang has claimed the title of “Best-Selling Sports Coupe On Earth” for four years in a row now. Read the rest of this entry »

While it’s true that there’s no replacement for displacement (and the GT500 has plenty of it,) keeping it as nimble as it is in the corners requires some very careful study and tuning. The minds over at Ford Performance employed a mix of software and 3D printing to dial-in the aerodynamics, which is hugely important for speed and handling. Read the rest of this entry »
