Since the introduction of the SN-95 body, and the newest style 1999 and up, I have been impressed with what Ford has been doing with the 'Stang. 2003 has to be one of the greatest years for the Mustang, with the production of the 2003 SVT Cobra, claimed to be the most powerful production ever built.
Now concepts for a whole new design of the famous legend have been going around for awhile, and it looks like Ford is focusing on this concept. http://www.stangnet.com/mustanggtconcept/
IMHO, this is a big mistake if this will be the future of this great muscle car. Alot of people may like the retro "Fastback" look, but this is taking a few steps backwards for Ford. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the days of the Fastback GT's and Mach1's etc. but let's face it, the look just does not mix with the nasty concept look. The new style has come so far, and now this? This is a greta dissapointment for me and many alike.
But looking at the new plans Ford has in store for a few years, includes a desperate update of it's 6-cyl model, which will drop the ageing 3.8l, and will receive the new 3.0l currently in the Taurus and other Ford's (But IMHO, I really think Ford should just drop the 6-cyl completely out of the picture, it really does not make much sense. But I know that many people who are not as "Hardcore" as some of us, and this makes up a large amount of customers. The 5.0l engine will be brought back in Mod form, as the 5.4l will now be available as a production engine in the 'Stang.
'Enough said, let's hear what you think.
