Dunno! But we can take an educated guess. The SN95 GT was .38 and I've read the new design is about 10% more aero... that along with other speculation I've read would say about .34 or .35. By contrast the old vette was .31 and the new vette is .28 (my wife's '93 Taurus wagon is .32 -- go figure!). Hope this helps, but the new Mustang GT num is just a guess. You might try a post at AAI Employees thread... a lot of those guys are close to the know.
