It looks like a BRZ had a three way with a newer charger and GT500.

I really like this alot. It looks right in that it has some retro keeping some mustang heritage.

I also don't see how it's not possible to lose even more weight. A current WRX weighs 3,142 with a manual, 4/5 door, and AWD. Honestly I can see a mustang weighing 3200 pretty easily with a Ecoboost 4. Cmon it's RWD, 2 door and shorter wheelbase. There's no reason for it to weigh what it does when a WRX weighs hundreds less.

I could see them doing at least 3 trims. Standard base mustang with a Ecoboost 4 cylinder, GT with Ecoboost 6 and whatever name for a V8. They are going to have to make some kind of affordable V8 trim for those purists that don't have $50k to drop on a GT500.

Ford is doing IMO too good of a job with these engine outputs. They really should focus more on keeping the weight down rather then getting more horse at this point. When you can buy a 6xxhp factory car for $50k, that's just retarded.
