wow...do you know this guy personally? did he tell you that he meant sales wise? how do you know that you're not the one taking it out of context? there's no need to get personal here, it was a joke. hence the at the end of it.

I think the new Mustang does look good. I"m still a Camaro guy but I would not turn either away.

I believe you're right. Which only confirms how vague his statement was and how easily it can be taken out of context. Regardless, I'm aware that he wasn't speaking of the car itself.

i never liked the interior of the mustang, but what do i know. 650hp gt500 is impressive. you can have all the power in the world but if you don't have a car that can handle that much horsepower then whats the use. I like to think chevy did right with taking the time to properly develope the camaro zl1. and in my own persoanl opinion i know people are going to buy a trick out the camaro zl1, i just assume leave it alone and just drive it the way it is because its already a classic! lol

Some people say they like the new tail lights on the Mustangs; but, I think they are ghastly. It looks like one giant piece of oddly-shaped plastic.

I dont think anyone should be worried about the ****ed Over Rebuild Dodge. You can have all the power in the world and still be sitting at the start line spinning your tires.

Hey the dushbag can and 1+1. DUH. Can someone either shoot this idiot or quit posting his videos. Please delete this video from the forum, clearly a Fo, For, I just can"t say the F word Fan. What a total ass. Maybe he should have said inthe ford vid. that the ZL1 is going to turn better and comes with a automatic and a convertible which the GT500 has never had.

Douche off! So who wins this battle between these two highly qualified candidates? It's very close and it might just come down to who's face is more punchable.

I say, without question, the sweater vest wins by a TKO.

does anybody else realize Ford jacked the 4 exhaust tips from the 2012 ZL1 and stuck them on the '13 GT500?

they are Scrambling big time!

Ford mustang Sales by year from wiki.
Sales
Calendar Year American sales
1999[53] 166,915
2000 113,369
2001[54] 169,198
2002[55] 138,356
2003 140,350
2004[56] 129,858
2005 160,975
2006[57] 166,530

2008[58] 91,251
2009[59] 66,623
2010[60] 73,716

They are selling less than half what they sold in 05 since the Camaro. That's gotta hurt!

Besides the convertible, I doubt it. The 2012 is only about a 6 month production run anyway.

My guess is that if you really want to play the waiting game, 2014 will be the year they improve the model.
