Worse Mustang Article/Review EVER

The writer must have never driven a Mustang, probably drives a Prius. His comments are so far off base on how/why Ford builds the Mustang the way it does that I hate to even post his blog.
But for those of you that want to throw up your dinner...

Yahoo has some of the worst articles on the internet. Most of the "writers" there are amateur hacks/blogger types.

One of the main stories there the other day was a write up about a Kim Kardashian selfie in a public bathroom and the fact that she was wearing no underwear. Full page article, I kid you not.

I avoid their articles like the plague.

Eh,......much ado nothing really.

His article doesn't exactly scratch new ground any-more-so than the Mustang he condemns for not making great strides into a new direction either.

Yeah.....we get it........pony cars like Mustang and Camaro both are in something of a "BOX" that doesn't allow for the far reaching dramatic changes he wants to see.

What he's apparently missing is simple enough to point to.

These cars are designed around a certain set of ideas that are some-what "fixed" and not open to consideration for change. Making some of the changes he suggests would mean a Pony car is no longer a Pony Car.

Worse still? Why ruin it? Why alienate the buyer that wants it and keeps coming back.

If it's a DIFFERENT car with vastly different ideas that a buyer wants........it's out there.....Ford may already be building it under another name-plate or it may be yet to come under an entirely NEW name-plate.

His article suggests to me that while he's some-what AWARE of the history concerning the pony car market......he's never actually owned a Mustang, Camaro or other brand of pony car.......it's pretty clear that he really just doesn't get it at all.

Wow that guy is an idiot. Period. Its one thing to criticize the design of a car. Its another thing to question why they don't take a mustang badge and put it on something that's not a pony car.

I mean that's just it. This guy clearly does not understand in any way shape of form what the long hood short deck concept of a pony car is.

Ford already makes most the vehicles he is griping about asking for anyways. He's just saying they should slap mustang badge on it?

So basically, this is a guy thats doesn't know mustangs at all, giving his opinion.

His article is the equivalent of asking why they don't try making Corvette a pick up truck and the next 911 a UTE.

Terrible. I'm most annoyed that I can't find a comments section to fire him up.

Let me slap down this silly article in two words.

Porsche Cayenne.

Porsche had no qualms about making a nice luxury SUV right? But its obvious why they didn't try to call it a "911".
