Independent rear suspension is rumored to also be on the menu.

Whatever happens, I dont mind IRS so long as it is done right and is stout enough to take the power of the torques the engines will make.

I do hope that the GT V6 and base trim I-4 are only sold outside of the US, meaning that in the US, the GT is keeps the V8 and the Base trim gets no less than a V6.
That way, you have a "World" mustang with the wussified engines, but in America, you do not lose the muscle and the Mustangs sold in the US remain in parity with Camaros and possible even Corvettes to the power extent.

And for gawd sake, Direct inject the Coyote and the 3.7L! The blocks were designed for DI but the current productions only have ESFI. DI will allow better fuel metering, economy, and even higher CRs
i dont want to live in a world without v8 mustangs, im planning on buying a v8 to keep my v6 company but that will probably happen sometime after i graduate, if there are no new gt's then i may have to jump off a very high cliff

I still think the 2013 is gorgeous - but last week, I saw a 2012 GT CS parked next to a GT500, side by side. I got to compare the looks, and I fell for the CS.

unfortunately, you can't get brembos with the CS. I am picking up a brembo equipped 2012 GT and adding on the CS pieces later.

I think the paint matched trims look more refined and make the car look more expensive, but I really enjoy having a 2ndary trim color, too, and will incorporate that black trim color into other areas of the car.

funny, I was really sold on waiting for the 2013, but seeing it side by side with the gt500 changed my mind.

Front end looks like the catfish looking front end of the Italian designers concept mustang from s few yrs ago. Love the heat extractor hood and rear tail lights though. But wouldn't trade my 12 for it. Love tye aggressive front end of the 11-12 models.
2013 sterling grey metallic v6. 18% tint on windows and 50% tint on the windshield.

I dig the back end of the car finally. I feel like they screwed it up when they went away from the back end like the 2007 GT. It made it look like a celica to me. The front does look pretty cool too, but nothing beats the Shelby look in the front ends. I really hope Ford does not cave to the tree hugging hippies and kill the v6/v8 setups. Government Motors can keep the small car offerings.

The Ford website now has 2013 pics and info. 420 hp/390 tq in "preliminary testing". I didn't like the looks of the front end until I saw a black one at the website.
