Ford thought about making a front-wheel-drive Mustang... once
It was the mid 80s, they were going to put it on a Mazda-built platform and make it front-wheel drive with a 2.0L 4 cylinder and a 3.0L V6.
The outcry from Ford, Mustang, and musclecar enthusiasts was so great that they decided to continue the fox-body Mustang and renamed the Mazda-platformed car "Probe".
I myself will NOT drive front-wheel drive. I hate the way 99% of them handle on dry pavement, and the way 100% of them handle on wet. If Ford ceased to offer a RWD car tomorrow, my next would be a Hyundai Genesis coupe. (It's RWD)
