Ford Mustang: A Brief History of Zero-to-60-mph Acceleration

-No segment has relied more on the zero-to-60-mph measurement as its call to arms than American muscle cars. While a vehicle’s zero-to-60-mph time is just one of many objective measures that can be used to indicate a vehicle's performance, manufacturers tout it aggressively because it provides a standardized performance baseline that virtually everyone can relate to. That goes not only for Ford and its Mustang, but also for staff here at Car and Driver. ---Thanks to our extensive history of gathering our own performance data, we have decades of revealing numbers captured by our editorial staff that not only offer a unique look into a vehicle’s evolution but also serve as a performance barometer of sorts for any given era. Jump in, and flip through more than five decades of Mustang zero-to-60-mph numbers pulled from some of the hottest (and not so hottest) performance ponies ever strapped with C/D test equipment.-1964.5 Ford Mustang Convertible-1967 Ford Mustng GT automatic-1968 Ford Mustang Coupe-1969 Ford Mustang Mach I-1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351-1974 Ford Mustang II Mach I-1976 Ford Mustang II Cobra II-1980 Ford Mustang Cobra-1982 Ford Mustnag GT-1996 Ford Mustang GT-1999 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra-2003 Ford Mustng Mach 1-2005 Ford Mustang GT-2010 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500-2011 Ford Mustang GT-2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca-2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500-2015 Ford Mustang GT-2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L-2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 / GT350R,--
