before pulling more hp out of the engine, they should fix all the problems (weird gear noises and clunks and flunks, and enhance ride qualitym then worry about more power or redesign.

I agree with the Journeyman, insofar as it would be a shame if FoMoCo turns the Stanger into a rich man's machine price-wise. Job 1 for ALL future Ponies, as far as I'm concerned, is: Keep the cost reasonable. You have no idea how often I've sneered (in my mind) at the Beemer or Honda "sports coupe" next to me at a light, thinking "Yeah, Ace, you coulda got TWO of mine for that ONE of yours...and mine's STILL prettier." I know I'm a reverse snob for saying this, but I don't particularly want our little Pony Platoon invaded by a bunch of effing trial lawyers (all apologies to Mr. Vandermey)...

No worries, no offense taken. Remember, I am a military attorney...I represent soldiers (and occasionally the government). I may be an attorney, but I love muscle cars, even more than I love luxury cars. Also remember, I own a Stang GT vert as my toy and a Ford F-150 as my daily driver....no Euorpean exotic here.

Wow, nice catch, I didn't see that and I looked pretty hard at the pictures right when I got the magazine out of my mailbox.

The cover Mustang has the pony running the wrong way, but the photo doesn't seem to be inverted because the driver's on the left-hand side.

As soon as I read your post, I ran and grabbed my Road & Track to investigate this sacrilege. However, I'm happy to report that all of the photos of the cars in the spread have the pony pointed in the correct direction (facing left). I guess the emblem must've fallen off the cover car and been stuck back on by one of the R&T dweebs the wrong way.
