He stated that the reason they are heading in the direction of the 4-cyl engines is to appeal to the younger market who cares more about being "green" than the number of cylinders. That's OK I suppose, but I hope they won't ignore the market composed of we who treasure an icon of the roaring 8 cyl muscle car era. Pretty soon the Mustang could evolve into a 1.2 liter front wheel drive with steel wheels!
As a member of the younger generation, a Mustang is all about a V8 and manual transmission. I've got no interest in four or six cylinder Mustangs regardless of how they perform.

I bought a Mustang to have fun with it. If I wanted to be "green" , I'd drive a Prius.

That will never happen.
