I agree wholeheartedly. If its true ( and I think it is, the articles I read were from interviews with people in product development at Ford) I fear Ford is making a big mistake but what do I know? I though Ford was out of their mind when they started charging over $30000 for a Mustang, but it seems to have done ok. We shall see...

ford has a history of doing more with less which i think will always pay off in the long run just as it always has. with the coming redesign the demographic of the average mustang buyer may change drastically but im sure it will keep working for them. even though we may not like it, others might. you win some and you lose some

If Ford get"s rid of the V8 in there NEW 2015 Mustang, they will destroy the Mustang that we know and love.I would not buy any engine with a boost, and a 6 or 4 banger would never be given a second thought,V8 GT Mustang or no Mustang at all for me.
