It kinda sneaks up on you…

the Mustang matures…

I wish there was more “new”, less weight, more HP and AWD… But this is an “end of life” generation that don’t even sell 100K a year. Otherwise I like…

Styling: The Mustang has grown up and isn’t a punk kid anymore, and should look the part. This Mustang has all the overhead cams, IRS, aluminum castings, and tech you’d expect in a Euro GT car for a fraction of the price, and there’s clearly some Aston Martin inspiration in the styling. 

Performance: I was underwhelmed too, until they talked racing and capped it with Bill Ford’s promise to return to LeMans. So while the hardware now is just a few more tweaks on the current Mustang’s, Ford will do whatever it takes to win LeMans and match the performance of any other automaker’s fastest… 

Legacy: The IC Mustang isn’t going out without one helluva fight!
