The idea that consumers are just discovering the Mustang which is possible, maybe more people have driven them. Maybe they enjoyed it enough to go out and buy them however the data that we have currently doesn't support that. So until I see data that supports that I am just going to stick with the data that I do have which says bigger discounts on 2011 model to make room for the 2012.
No here comes the reason:
As rising fuel prices have driven up demand for the V-6 engine, Ling said Ford has chosen to apportion more supply to the F-150, among its most profitable models. The V-6 Mustang starts at a list price of $22,310, according to Ford.com.

"The V-6 powertrain that's shared with all of our hot products is really very popular right now," Jim Farley, Ford's global marketing chief, said in a June 9 interview. "We have a lower days' supply on Mustang, but we think that's the right way to run that business."

The V-6 engine shortage has left Ford with less than 30 days' supply of Mustangs, half the inventory it had a year ago, Ling said. Ford is now looking for ways to boost production of the V-6, which accounts for 51 percent of Mustang sales, up from 40 percent a year ago, Ling said.

"We're making sure that the truck has enough engines and obviously there is an impact to Mustang," Ling said. "The dealers feel we could sell more" if Ford had more V-6 engines.

Take a look at the Chevy and Ford lots in your area and count the number of new Camaros and Mustangs available. I think it will be obvious who has a larger supply of cars sitting unsold.

I am very skeptical of this and the actual impact on sales of the Mustang, I don't doubt that the shortage of V-6 Mustangs has negatively impacted its sales.

However to completely ignore the incentives is equal to putting blinders on a horse so that it can only see in one direction. I know that Ford fans don't know any better they are willing to believe any BS that Ford feeds them (Most GM fans don't trust GM).

So I am still going to have to go with added incentives to move metal, though a 30 day supply on the V-6 Mustang is less then ideal (60 days). I am willing to bet that it hasn't negatively impacted Mustang sales as much as Ford would like people to believe. Also if true and the Mustang V-6 was at a 30 days supply while the Mustang model was at a 105 days supply then that would have put V-8 Mustangs at something like a 130 day supply.

I think it has to do with Fiat funding or something. Sadly, I really can't see another generation on the Challenger, which is too bad. Chrysler has a lot of work to do they really are five to ten years behind Ford and GM. I still have my fingers crossed for a new Viper, but I'm not holding my breath.

Didn't somebody come up with a stat that the Mustang had one of the largest amounts of time in inventory of any vehicle or something like that? I think it was in another thread.

I signed up to a Camaro forum because I want to talk about Camaros. If I wanted to hear about Mustangs, I'd go to a Mustang forum.

I have to agree. There are no incentives for a Camaro.

I see no other reason to push the 2012 out that early, it wasn't like they had any changes or upgrades from the 2011 model. They may have added a color or two.
And back up sensors (imitating the Camaro)

From Ford's website

That is where I read it unless Ford got it wrong or they are lying......

Granted to get the full $3,000 you have to trade in a vehicle.

So make up your minds, do you want Mustang owners visiting the site or not? Frankly, I couldn't care less if they posted or not but it seems like this site is schizopheric when it comes to those folks.

The rumoring on ChallengerTalk is that it will cease in 2013 or 2014. Dodge isn't likely to do much besides a few interior acroutements and fresh colors from here on out.

Many of people over there have been hoping for a manual V6, or a convertible. Does not look like that will pan out.

Camaro loses 5 month sales streak to Mustang

[quote] Posted by Amie Williams on July 3, 2011

So the number was just released for this past month of June regarding sales of the 2011 Mustang and it has swept out the rug from under the Camaro. From January to May, the Camaro was leading the pack with GM’s release of the Convertible Camaro. Last month’s sales totalled to only 6,607 Mustangs but that increased to 8,835 with the Camaro’s sales decreasing from May to June but is still in second place putting an end to their five month streak.

Hey, all those ecoweenies can drive their microcars.

Give me a Yankee/Canuck, rip roaring, V-8, 400+ hp, tire shredding, hot rod, pulse pounding, men-still-have-their-balls musclecar.

And suck on my exhaust, granola breath.

Ya I like them all myself, but after testing driving them, the Camaro sees the best of the pack.
