Ford and Chevy are kind of light on fun sporty cars. But if that is what the market wants them to make...guess the people have talked.
Say it with me, Ford Focus RS-E (electric).

A peek at the revised 5.0 V8 sporting the twin plenum and throttle bodies at 8 sec. into the video. Was secretly wishing a version of the 7.3 V8 was under there since Ford has a new low-profile intake manifold on its way.

but I do not want an electric car. I fail to see the point in them. Just a different solution. Not really a better one.

Not really a fan of the styling. I rather like the interior, not because I'm a big fan of screens or foxbodies; but because I really hated the retro-look of the outgoing one, especially the steering wheel. This one still has a slight retro vibe but it's more of the modern chic 80s cyberpunk retro than the overwrought outgoing one. The front and side profiles are pretty inoffensive, though I'm still disappointed in the continuing lack of rear quarter panel vents; even if fake, a quintessential Mustang styling cue for me. The aftermarket will cure that, if not the actual Ford performance catalog though. But that rear end doesn't work for me at all. I'm not horribly opposed to having a rear crease in the deck like that (it looks rather clean on the Elantra) but the angle of it is too extreme and combined with the shrunken rear deck it looks way too "pinched" for me. All and all it looks like an improved product, but styling-wise it's a miss for me. Could change seeing it in person, but I doubt it.

The 2024 Ford Mustang will be 'much more difficult' to tune
Blame a new electrical architecture
https://www.autoblog.com/2022/10/11/...ore-difficult/
Quote:
For many enthusiasts, part of the Ford Mustang's appeal is the tremendous amount of aftermarket support that the model benefits from. While third-party companies will sooner or later get their hands on the seventh-generation model, the scope of modifications that can be performed to the four- or the eight-cylinder engine will be reduced because Ford has made the car's ECU more difficult to tune.

Ed Krenz, the Mustang's chief engineer, told Ford Authority that the new model unveiled in September 2022 will be "much more difficult" to tune than its predecessors. He explained that's due to the Fully-Networked Vehicle (FNV) electrical architecture that the Mustang is built around. This system enables over-the-air software updates, among other features, but it also complicates the task of tuning the ECU.

Krenz noted that the Mustang's electrical system is encrypted, and it's programmed to shut down if it detects what's referred to as a "break." If that happens, it either turns off entirely or disables certain components or functions. That's bad news for both hackers and tuners.

That doesn't mean that Mustang owners will be stuck with the stock output. Ford Authority added that the Blue Oval is open to the idea of letting trusted tuning companies dial in more power. None were identified by name, but Shelby is one of the firms that comes to mind. And, owners who want more horsepower and torque may be able to get both directly from the source when the time comes. For example, Ford Performance just announced a calibration kit that increases the 2.3-liter-powered Bronco's output by around 30 horsepower and 60 pound-feet of torque when burning premium fuel.

Ford isn't an exception to the rule; tuning the eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette is equally difficult due to ECU-related constraints.

Car and driver clicked through the head-unit, and everything was responsive as hell. I think they did a great job. Styling is very Cyberpunk-ish and will no doubt be a grand rendition for the final goodbye of the ICE Mustang.... Unless they do this

Except it's nothing like an s15 but nice try, I guess

Which oddly enough, fits in stylistically with what's going on in the market right now.

If the recent Z is anything to go off of, they would **** it up.

Maybe they will release it as some performance EV.

I think this is pretty sweet, maybe not so much on the paint styling or front bumper, but over-all (Seems like) there is some homage shape wise to ol' skyline.

Default Ford Plans To Make The 2024 S650 Mustang Impossible For Tuners To Modify

Ford Plans To Make The 2024 S650 Mustang Impossible For Tuners To Modify



Quote:

Much ado has been made of the fact that the C8 Corvette – which debuted in 2019 for the 2020 model year – has proven to be incredibly difficult to tune, which stems from its heavily encrypted ECU, a byproduct of GM’s attempts to thwart cybersecurity and various hacking concerns. Now, it seems as if third-party tuning companies will also find the all-new, recently-revealed S650 Ford Mustang more difficult to tune as well, for precisely the same reason.

“Much more difficult,” Ford Mustang Chief Engineer Ed Krenz told Ford Authority Executive Editor, Alex Luft, in a recent interview when asked if it would be difficult for third parties to tune the S650 Ford Mustang. Krenz explained that the seventh-generation Mustang uses the automaker’s new Fully-Networked Vehicle (FNV) electrical architecture, which brings various benefits like over-the-air updates and much-needed cybersecurity to the iconic pony car, but it also largely locks down the vehicle from being tuned as well.
