The 2011 is just as fast to most drivers and will certainly handle better stock vs stock, the interior is light years ahead of the earlier cars.
I would go Kona Blue 2011 myself.

I don't know, just depends on what you prefer.

Evolution is already running high 10's with just a handful of mods (yes, including 100 shot of nitrous).
How much would you have to put into a GT500 to get high 10's?
The '11 GT also has the advantage on a road course with its lighter front end.
Of course, you really can't go wrong with either and if you can find a low milage GT500 for low 30's (they are out there) then thats hard to pass up.

If he's a drag racer, then go with the GT500 and prepare for a lot of mods.

My wife and I have a 2006 GT convertible (auto) and a 2007 GT500 (6 speed) convertible. The GT is hers (was mine before the Shelby) and the GT500 is mine.
The GT rides much better and for trips/vacation is "easily" to drive. We took the Shelby this year to Asheville, NC for vacation and it was fun, but a month later we had to go to SC for business and took the GT.
The vacation was to go to a show and drive the "mountain roads", the business trip was to get up, do a meeting and come home.
Mileage, comfort and transmission, I prefer the GT, performance Shelby all the way....

I faced the same choice recently. I chose to go with a new car with a warranty.
