Thats what they need to do. The retro thing has been played out. Time for futuristic.

They're ruining these cars. I hate the look, this isn't a long time ago in a galaxy far far away. It looks like something that would hover. Keep the 2010 style for five years Ford, then start rethinking.

"Screw drag?" For 40+ years that's what the mustang has been know for. If you made a great turning mustang but killed it's drag capabilities the car wouldn't sell. You would be utterly betraying the car's heritage. Ford is not stupid enough to do that. An upgrade in the suspension department is needed but given that a solid-rear axle car lost to an M3 by a mere tenth of a second on the twists says something about what I'm sure you think is an "archaic suspension set up."

And and IRS eco-boost is likely to come out on the guise of a revived SVO so you can buy that.

You do realize that will cause the price of the mustang to shoot up several thousand dollars right?

No, it won't. I swear I've been talking to a wall lately. The CBIRS system not only gives a SRA feel upon a Drag type launch but also gives the car reactions like a traditional IRS over uneven surfaces. Not only that but it weights in only the slightest more than it's SRA cousin and since Ford is developing it to go into a multitude of platforms, added cost will be minimized.

Default Looks Fantastic

Here's an opinion from the United States on this world car. Fantastic potential here. If this car comes out low and beautiful, with an American style V-8 and European handling and interior, it's going to be a fantastic proposition.

I own a BMW 335xi with a 6-speed manual, love it and won't sell it. Took factory delivery in Munich and drove it on the Autobahn before having it shipped back to the States.

In high school, I owned a Mustang and have always liked the brand...but the latest generation didn't quite do it for me. It needed better handling and quality to get me interested. I've always liked Fords, so I bought a Ford Tempo GLS coupe right out of college, then sold it to go to graduate school.

I'll be in the market for a toy after the BMW is paid off next year. I've been looking at Porsches, but the Mustang may grab me instead. My father drives a Fusion Hybrid and I told him to buy it...it reminds me of a BMW.

Ford, don't listen to the old-timers who hate the 2014 concept. There's a whole new market waiting for you out there and I bet most of the faithful come around after they see and drive the 21st century Mustang.

check this out Test Mule photos IRS on this car and IT HAS A V8 looks like the new car will be a bit wider as well as the roof panel of the 2013 they are using body panels off of don't quite fit also the rear bumper took a but of a hack to fit the exhaust. I do hope the actual car sits lower on that chassis you don't get much from this about the looks of the new car as ford tried to make it look as much like a 2013 5.0 as they could and to cover up any thing that might give anything away.

Old pic is too camaro-ish, luckily it's just that - an old concept pic far from what's coming.

Eco4 over V6? I'm not sure what to think here. The Eco4 brings alot of good things to the table (weight reduction, equal power to v6, boost already on board) but loses alot of things I suspect (low end torque, higher revving to hit powerband even moreso than the 3.7, and the potential to sound like a ricebox).

Yay for IRS finally, time to teach an old dog new tricks. It's all well and good to say you have 'the best SRA there is', but that's like saying you're the most healthy person in intensive care.. Have to wait and drive it, and hear it to decide, but I suspect with some weight reduction and maybe even some size/slimming it will hit that 'market' they are looking for.

It would be good, if the stock turbo is 88mm+ and the stock internals and fuel system can handle like 60 psi/700 rwhp, stock HP being 450+


if not, then ill just take my NA 5.0 V8 and laugh at 4 cylinders

I don't like the 2010-2012 rear but the 2013 (especially lit up at night) looks very nice!

If the Ecoboost is done right it will probably have a flatter and wider TQ curve than the current V6 which would mean more under the curve. By done right I mean a twin turbo 4 cyl. As a single turbo, in order to keep a fat/flat TQ curve it would need a variable vane compressor to make it spool up at a lower RPM (again fat/flat) TQ Curve.

A powerful 4cyl is a good thing in my mind to keep entry level mustang prices low while still offering all the goodies that the bigger siblings can get, leave those option boxes open.

As for the photo, I hate it and we all know why.

For the six I really hope they bring over the turbo straight six from the XR6 turbo falcons over in Australia, that beast would be my choice engine.

They should keep it sra with a irs option or visa versa. I'd still take a solid.

I like the idea of having an option or SRA or IRS but seems it would be costly

One reason I went for the '13 was liking the front and rear better than the '10-'12. Obviously folks differ.
