what would we like to see on upcoming models?

As hthe years progressed we saw little updates on the body and interior.. but what do you really want? From the v6 standard package to the gt 500 premium package? Is there that much of a differnce? Why can't we see suede or more racer style seats? What would you like?

Great Thread!! I agree with going on Diet, I mean full bore Jenny Craigs for all the Pony's. Good grief. And I am with SpectorV on this one, 3200-3300lbs sounds pretty darn good!

For me, the biggest thing is TURBO! So much more efficient!!!! I mean I love the sound of my Kenne Bell but if I didn't buy the car with it I would have purchased a Hellion kit for sure! Love the sound!

I know on my car, you just have to go into the settings to change that. Mine all turn off after having the car off for 10 minutes.

Re: what would we like to see on upcoming models?

Supposedly the 2014 mustang is going to be the lightest mustang ever made, but that is all speculation. I hope that ford starts offering as an option to get IRS or live rear axle from the factory, so that way everybody can have what they want.

Yeah the cheap plastic rattles to much. Gonna put some foam rubber to tighten it up so it doesn't rattle, mainly the center console around the shifter. As long as it doesn't turn into a 4 door like the charger or look like a space ship like the camaro.

Re: what would we like to see on upcoming models?

I have very good hearing so I hear every rattle and squeak and there is way too much plastic used in the stang interior com on ford lets get some quality on the inside as well as the out side.

I watched supercars with tanner foust and they had a 1000 hp turbo camero vs a 1000hp supercharged stang and the turbo was quicker only for a little bit. The pros and cons of each:/
