Cars tend to have this habit of collecting extra letters at the end of their names, but none are more nebulous than the oft used “GT.” Badges like “LE,” “Type-R,” and “AMG” indicate which trim level you’ve sprung for or whether you’re zipping around in the sportier variant of a particular vehicle. “GT” is supposed to mean you’re seated in a “Grand Tourer” — but what exactly does that mean? What does it take for a car to be considered a true GT? To satisfy my musings, I took the 2016 Mustang GT on a short road trip to explore this concept, and to see if it’s worthy of the label.

The top tier of Ford’s latest Mustang comes saddled with a 5.0-liter V8 that puts out 435 horsepower and 400-pound-feet of torque. All this grunt is sent to the back wheels by way of a six-speed select shift automatic, or six-speed manual. For this journey, my pony had a proper stick shift.

In the traditional sense, a Grand Tourer is something in the middle of sport and luxury: more comfortable than a track-blaster but nimbler than a long-hauling sedan. You’re meant to go the distance, but still have fun. To that end, the most common car configuration of a GT is a two-door, “2+2” coupe, and the sleek, fastback build of the modern Mustang certainly fits that bill.
