I went to my local Ford dealer last night looking at their new orange Mach 1 when a seemingly knowledge member of their staff started talking Mustang's with me. He informed me of 2 things that I find highly improbable:
-The 2005 Body Style Mustang will only be produced for 2 years.(He said this is for sure!)
-The in 2007 the Mustang to follow this radical body style will be an All Wheel Drive.
I search a lot of forums and I also try to find out anything I can, but I have never heard of an All Wheel Drive Mustang. The dealer swears by it though.
Anyone that has insight please let me know.

i heard about the AWD in motor trend a while ago...it was just an idea, because ford needed someone to compete with since the camaros were gone, so they were thinking about going after subaru's....all im gonna say is an AWD V8 would own everything
OMG YES! That would be amazing. You see how fast those four cylinder AWD's hook up, that would be ridiculous to have on a stang. Casper98 and I talked about that a coulpe years ago, like what it would take to build one but we def decided it would be way too much.

I would be willing to bet that if Ford did make an AWD Mustang, it would not be a V-8. That's just my opinion, so take it for what it's worth.
I would rather Ford come out with a killer AWD Focus to compete with the Subaru's, rather than change the Mustang to an AWD car. Leave the Mustang alone, and let it keep the V-8 rear drive only set-up. It's sold well for years, why mess with a good thing?

I feel that they should leave the Mustang alone, because if they follow the trend to make it "All Wheel Drive", just to compete with Subaru, then it is only a matter of time before they make it Front Wheel Drive.
The current set up of a Front Engine Rear Wheel Drive American Sports car should live on. However, I do agree with the benefits of an All Wheel Drive car, it shouldn't be on a Mustang. Go buy a Jap Trap.
