I would say the Challenger is the boat.

That's because car shows are a fad for middle aged and older men. I've seen local car shows of all types, and most are nothing but old guys sitting around and having a couple drinks. Most younger guys in S/W Florida are probably going to be spending their time on the beach or in clubs, not sitting around in a lawn chair at a local car show. No offense.

Plenty of young professionals out there with disposable income or those who want a fun everyday car. Should Ford throw in the towel and let them walk into an import dealership without offering an alternative?

It is a boat, but so is the S197. It's just a smaller boat.

The "Latest" rendering in the Mag. "Car and Driver" looks....Well I guess OK. But what I DONT like is the fact that they have quoted a "Higher Up from Ford" revealing that for 2016, the Top of the Line GT-350 will sport a Completely NEW Engine that will displace around 5.4L be NA, BUT, it will be a "Flat Plane Crankshaft" Ferrari style Motor that will Rev to the Moon and put out around 600 HP I say YUK!! ...... As a Flat Planed Crank engine sounds like 2 Four Cylinders "Bolted" together!....This is NOT how an American V8 is supposed to Sound!.....I NEVER Liked the way those Euro-V8's sounded......Look up "Flat Planed Crankshaft" engines (Wikipedia) for those that want a complete understanding of the difference...

2015 Mustang ugh !

If pictures of the `15 hold true it's a combination of Nissan and Audi looks. The rear fender bulge is awful and out of character for what a Mustang historically is.
Rear independent suspension and the loss 0f 400 pounds is great but I still have to look at it.

What pictures are you talking about?... So far two all I see are two YouTube music videos

I don't speak often but when I do, I don't have clue what I am talking about. I just repeat things that I once heard and do not repeat them correctly... My doctor told me it was an ID 10 T problem and it was incurable.
So when I reply to a post or add to a thread I just find the words elsewhere and copy and paste.

Okay, we all know he means 2015. So, let's spare him the drama with those details. 14's have been on the road for a while now.

However, even though I own a 2012 "Retro" Stang, I'm happy that retro is being phased out. Up until the 2005, the Mustang has progressed and changed with the times. We've had the same look of the car, for the most part, for almost a decade now. It's time to move on to a sleeky, sexy, modern car.

I want to see the car progress. Not continue to be stuck in the past. If the 2015 is fast, rides nicely, has a great modern interior, and drives well, I'd trade in a heartbeat to one.

I'll reserve judgement on the 2015 Mustang styling until I actually see one. Cut 400lbs of weight and a bump up to 475hp with direct injection and you'll be needing that rear fender bulge.

I'd like to see the rear fender bulge he's talking about. So far nobody has seen anything farther back than the front fenders.....

You're not going to see 475 hp either. At least not from a GT...
