People are scooping up the last of the mustangs before the 2015 fusion/mustang hits the dealers, plus the refresh of the Camaro isn't a huge hit as chevy expected... Huge jump in sales there for the last breed of mustang.

I think the mustang decline last few months was due to the flat rock assembly plant being down the whole month of July for fusion tool-up. Now its a "last hurrah" until production goes down in Dec to re-tool for S550.

Don't know about the 2014 not being popular...the local dealers don't have any. They are trying to push the 13's out the door, but still wanting full...or above sticker.

The 2015 has been leaked, I see ALOT of people scrounging up 13-14's before the Fustang is released. Maybe that is why the price hasn't come down much. Ford see's customers wanting the current or last gen of the s197.

I think they're holding the prices on the 13's because a lot of ppl are still looking and for those new. Dealers know they have the last of the most popular 5thgens. I wouldn't drop the price neither.

Sure, there may be a few, but not so many that the numbers reflected above would happen.
It has nothing to do if it's going to suck, it might have to do with that it will look like a fusion coupe.

Does not seem to be the case at all.

Sales were up 11% over the same period last year.
Looking at the chart above, and it seems Oct. sales always go down a little from the previous month.

The Mustang had an very good month though.

Maybe it's just in my area, but Ford was offering 3k back on Mustangs and 0% for 36 months. That's enough to get anyone on the fence to buy. GM hasn't really gone that route.

Chevy should have added more power to the SS.

No reason to add power at this time with the direct injected motors on the horizon. The larger the margin is on the DI motors, the easier it will be to sell them. Besides, there bolt-ons, ZL1's, Z/28's for that. The SS is comfortably ahead of the competition in power for dollar as it is.

People are going to believe what they want but sales of the Camaro are still up over last year. So even if the Mustang is out selling the Camaro this month it's still not doom and gloom.... Lots of factors go into sales.
Camaro sales are up 2.2% YTD, while Mustang sales are down 1.1%YTD

OMFG! I just looked that up. That is one UGLY looking car! Fustang. LOL! What did they do? The 2014 Camaro looks WAY better than that, I don't care if you don't like the tail lights or chrome strip. You gotta agree. LOL!

When i was getting my car (cert used) another guy was looking at a 2013 and he tried to haggle a bit saying the model year is over etc etc. The salesman tried to BS him and say that the car sales haven't dropped at all and they have no wiggle room…. they all have a little wiggle room (this is the BS part). They were def marked a little higher than i would have expected.

Must suck, losing out on those sales to Ford. Bulk buys are great news for any manufacturer. I remember being disappointed that I couldn't rent a Camaro convertible to drive from SF to LA. I mean I have a Mustang, so what was the point. Went for cheapo in the end.
