I have had three mustangs recently, but I think I will be in a 2015 Challenger in a few months (It actually looks a lot like the 1971 Challenger). I want a car that looks great, has great performance, a top notch interior, great electronics and at a fair price. The Camaro, Challenger and Mustang compete for buyers, like me, in the Pony Car market - among other groups. I hope the Mustang sells well - making more competition in the Pony Car market, but on looks - interior - performance and relative price the other two candidates have really passed up the 2015 Mustang....from my perspective
I wasn't referring to sales. I was referring to the fact that humans don't like change, even when it is for the better. Also keep in mind, as long as you brought it up, that the Camaro and Challenger were not choices a few years ago. They now do cut into the sales of Mustangs. People do have a choice, but don't dismiss the fact, that whether you like the way the new Mustang looks or not, that it is a great car. The competition is back. It can only make all of these cars even better.

And the trash talk about the Hellcat is just that. How many are going out and buying one? There aren't many GT500s out there. How many of those Hellcats will be out there with a $65,000+ Price tag? I worked my butt off for mine. Just sayin' ... The z/28 is a mythical car. Who owns one? $75,000. So judgement is out before the new Mustang hits the streets.
