You're certainly right that new cars have gotten quieter; my point is just that you have to consider the overall noise level. And I do actually care about external noise, which doesn't seem to have improved much. Just one of many factors to consider.
The Mustang has a tube that physically pipes noise into the cabin from the intake because the engine is too quiet.

I drive a car that focuses on performance and very little cabin noise comes from the engine. Cabin noise is a function of insulation from wind and road noise and not engine.
