SVT's name is still on the car.

Ford Responds...

Wonder if it will make its way up to 427 hp....

It appears that the 'shot over the bow' with the Camaro is drawing a response...let the HP wars continue!

This will be interesting. Like I said in that last epic thread about the mythical 5.0/400HP Mustang... I just don't see it happening. I don't claim to know the costs of these engines, and I'm sure the economies of scale will definitely be in play being that the motor will be shared by the #1 selling vehicle in the world (F-150), but I can't for the life of me see how Ford can put the Coyote in the Mustang withot raising the price to be at least EQUAL to the Camaro's. And that just goes against their business model for that car... as far as the Mustang is concerned Ford's always made 'em cheap and left it to their buyers to make 'em fast. Maybe Ford is spooked enough to finally drop the knife and bring a gun to the gunfight but, man, I just don't see it... not for a few years at least.

By announcing so early a new engine that is more powerful, it will hurt the sales of this years GT.

The article is for the 2011 Mustang. We already know what will be in the 2010.
I don't know about GM putting a "better" engine but maybe adding more horsepower to the LS3.
Either way I doubt GM will let the Camaro go down without a fight.

I doubt it. The Mustang is a big seller no matter what.

The only reason the non-Shelby Cobra's exist is because Shelby sold the name to Ford for $1 when they took over his operation. Shelby's became Cobra's and now they are Shelby's again because the name sells. When Shelby decides he doesn't want Ford using his name again or his old age sadly gets the best of him then they will become non-Shelby Cobra's again.

Z28 anyone.



This might be just what we need, thanks Ford for potentially waking the Z28 from its slumber.

A tick over 13.0 sec. and you're through the quarter-mile. It's a rush, of course, but not overly dramatic. Try the same thing with this pair's predecessors of 1970 or so and you'll find yourself in a bit of a wrestling match. Ain't progress wonderful? Maybe yes, and maybe sometimes it's fun to wrestle."
