WOW!!! Technology Is Breathtakingly AMAZING!

My son's 1988 Mustang (his 1st car when he was 16 in 1996) w/2.3L 4 cylinder engine was 88 HP. The 2017 Mustang w/same exact size engine (2.3L Ecoboost) produces 310 HP!!!

It is AMAZING what technology can do!

But rather than 352% the HP, it would be nice if it got 352% the MPG, but I'm sure that is unlikely. BTW: 88 HP was fine!

1988:

2017:
