Funny part is you can order a new 2011 Mustang starting 23 november 2010 but the reveal at the L.A. Autoshow isn't till December some time.

Whats that all about?


Poor product planning if you ask me. Basically the opposite of Chevy showing off the Camaro years before you can buy one.

Meh......not really. You're talking about weeks compared to years. Everyone pretty much knows what will be in them anyways besides maybe some new interior features and such.

Everyone? you mean the hardcore enthusiast groups? Most of the general public couldn't tell you about the engine that is in the current mustang, let alone the next one.

Which is why they probably won't even know you can order on the 23rd either. Ford will have it's reveal and none will be the wiser.

Point is that that I don't agree with their strategy to hold off on a reveal.

I really don't understand what you mean? They chose the LA Autoshow for the reveal. Are you saying you wanted it sooner or something?

Right idea, wrong details. GM unveiled the Camaro in the summer of 2008 (when the released all the specs and what not) and ordering followed in October. Still, its the opposite of what Ford is doing.

reveal what?..another disappointment..

if F wants to sell these, redo the rear look and put more power in the entry line to be effective. otherwise, another waste of time and money.

Obviously you haven't heard, read, or seen what will be in the new Mustangs. I'll let you just find out yourself.

I'm really anxious to see what numbers it puts down, and to see if it lives up to the specs that have been thrown around here lately. If it does, it will be a high to mid 12's car.

That is the kicker. Will the numbers still be the same. I have my fingers crossed.

I really don't see a huge increase happening but a lot of variables are still unknown.

I bet Ford will try its very hardest for it have a very minor increase in weight at the most. I wonder if the transmission will take the over 100 HP increase well or not...

Most of us know of the power boost with the new 5.0 liter car....that will very likely make it a mid to high 12 second 1/4 car...but there will likely be no exterior changes, with is unfortunate, IMO.

It will no doubt be one hell of a performace car...six speed....with about 400 hp. But an exterior refresh is overdue.

They are getting new 6 speed transmissions however the old transmissions held up perfectly fine to mods well in excess of 100hp.
