While there is still a good market for this type of car and there will probably always be a demand for it this is a totally different sales environment than it was in the 60s, 70s and even into the early 2000s and I think my previous statement still does apply. Times change but I think a lot of people don't want to change with it.
My point was that, together, Camaro and Challenger had 0% of the "pony car market" in 2008 and in 2013 had about 65% of the "pony car" market. Both have worked hard to build a car with great technology, high performance and, in many people's view, image/looks. Ford responding with a "cousin" of the Fusion, and a close member of the "Ford Family," doesn't seem like a move to "distinguish" the "Mustang brand." Only time will tell.
