What they need to be doing is adding an all wheel drive option, many of us want a car we can drive year round. All bmw's , infinitis, acuras, audis, lexus have that option. This is an area they need to improve. I want a mustang, but I am also considering the latter because or this.
You can drive your Mustang year-round if you know how to drive... I've been doing it for years.
Besides, the Mustang started out as, and always will be, the affordable sports car -- not luxury car (BMW, Lexus), not soap-box grocery getter (STi, Evos), and not necessarily pure muscle (like the Torinos, Chargers & Chevelles of yore; exception: Cobra Rs, GT500s
). And it won't give up styling or 4-seats in the name of autocross (Miatas, S2000) -- basically, Mustang created its own definition as a Pony Car! (check wikipedia for a definition
I'm excited to see the new styling; a little worried about the resizing (since I'm also in the 6+ ft crowd :yelpleased
; glad it will be lighter -- and I trust Ford to do it right!
As somebody mentioned, they do need to offer a cheaper base model for the young teens -- it's the reason I got my Stang in the first place!
I'm indifferent to the IRS: I have no need for it, but it's supposedly better... and more costly. Lots of pros & cons to consider.
