This may be a look at the real reason we eventually lose the V8 option.........as well as the 6 cylinder and eco boost 4.

A person....any person......working on a new Mustang should never, ever, in a million years, use the word "green".

Never. Ever.

This shows a paradigm shift in the approach Ford has towards the Mustang. It's no longer meant to be a ground-pounding, earth-shaking GT/Sports Coupe. It's now meant to be a limp-wristed, tofu eating, diversity celebrating, politically correct, birkenstock wearing, metro-sexual "world car".

The entire Ford group that created the new Mustang are not "car guys", and need to be sacked. All of them. They all need to go before they completely ruin the car. They're a bunch of sissies. A bunch of panty-waisted, skinny-jeans wearing, latte-sipping little ninnies that care more about a soft ride, and infotainment equipment in the Mustang, rather than performance. Their favorite pass-time is to go to wine & cheese parties, and sniff their own farts.

Imagine if the same group of people are around to design and engineer the next new Mustang. Good Lord!!! It will have a 3 cylinder motor that runs on unicorn farts, and Barbie Glitter paint colors.

"Oh, I know, we can give it a Rainbow Coalition paint scheme, and front-wheel-drive. Tee-hee...it will be sooo pretty!! Do these jeans make my butt look big?"

The next Mustang should be engineered and designed by people that are not racing, because they have lost limbs from over-taking accidents on the track. They should eat pistons and spew flames. They should wear baggy over-alls and smell of motor oil and blood. They should be called "Bubba" and "Max Venturi" and bring cigarettes, 40 ouncers, hookers and blow into the engineering/design center while they work.

If the next new Mustang does not go air-born, flip over, and burn at the side of the track at the Nurburgring during testing, they won't be trying hard enough to make it what it should be.

It will be awhile before that plays out but combustion engines will be a thing of the past.

The development dollars are being spent towards lower cylinder and displacement to get greater performance vs v8's getting current v6 mpg.

V8's are the best but 15mpg and a 90 mile daily commute don't make for the best combination. EB4 comes up short on performance and v8 is not practical for long DD commutes.

Ford Racing has done some pretty amazing performance upgrades on the EB4, makes me drool for a EB6.

As it stands V8s do offer a cheaper cost over the Turbo 6 so that alone will give the V8 some holding ground for now. Being 24 I don't really get caught up over 6 vs 8 but in my own preference.. I love the sound of an 8.

If ford chooses to ditch the 8 for a turbo 6 I can live with that as long as it's pushing equal power to an 8.

I made an account on the site after lurking for a while and reading through this thread specifically.

I'm one of the "millenials," I suppose, being 24. If I had my way, I'd be behind the wheel a GT with that nice 5.0 V8; however, I'm opting for either the V6 or the Ecoboost for now, with price being the determining factor. After I'm done with school and off into the real world, I'm moving up to the GT for sure. There's nothing like the sound of a V8 opening up, plain and simple.

Keep voting in Democrats and everything will be Hybrids and electrics. Don't compare Mustangs and Teslas , unless you compare the price, Teslas are in the $100,000 plus price range.

Hmmm, come to think of it, I've never seen a Mustang with a bumper sticker on it.
