Well this just ruined my day. The new gt will probably consist of a v6 turbo. And maybe the new replacement for the gt500 will be a v6 twin turbo.

Yeah it's sounds far fetched. I'm just glad I already have my coyote.

Cafe standards really getting strict and overall cost for Ford to produce goes way down.

Linky no worky. If true, will make coyote powered mustangs very desirable.

They didn't just develop a 5.2 flat plane crank motor to be run in a limited production vehicle for 2 years.

After their latest 50th anniversary video showing all sorts of V8 GTs and saying "Here's to Another 50 Years" if they discontinue the V8 it will practically be suicide for the model.

You can say that the Ecoboost and the V6 were the majority sellers but the true blood that's pumping thru the veins of the Mustang are the V8s.

It's where the mystique, the sound, the vibe is at.

I don't think they'll discontinue it just yet. I think it's hype about the new trucks and especially the Ford GT that was a shocking TT V6.

But if you take a step back and consider Ford mainly produces the GT for 24hr Le Mans, which regulates engine size. 5.0 limit for NA and 3.5L for turbocharged cars. So naturally they had to either do an NA 5.0 or a TT 3.5L.

Considering horsepowerkings.com is the only site that is reporting this and this just seems highly unlikely.. That site is said to have really bad malware too.. Ford just made their turbo 4cyl in the 2015, it seems to me that will calm all the "economic hippys" for the time being... Without a v8 there is no muscle cars.. V6's are honestly just not truly a muscle car... Muscle cars are nothing without America and America is nothing without muscle cars!

I called it a long long time ago. (I'd smile here, but it's a sad day...)

Ford is repeating the 70s all over again. The 14s (and technically the 15+16s) are the last of the actual muscle cars and will likely be for a generation or two. Smaller engines, more tech, more stuff to break, worse styling...

The 71 Mach 1 looked good, the 72 as well. The 73 was a bit different, but still in the same family ( I'd say a bit like the the current 15s vs at 14s). Then came 74 and the floor fell out.

I wonder what Shelby's going to do... Maybe buy up a ten year supply of 14s, 15s, and 16s?

Right or wrong I have thought the same thing myself....this modern muscle car era has been too good to be true. Last time the boss mustang came out was 69-70 then 3 years later new Government regulations and new "european" body style with 4 cylinder and the end. Now the boss comes back and if history repeats itself horsepower reduction should come in 2016 which just happens to be the same year of new government regulations. I will admit the new mustang is a big difference then the mustang 2 but still there are similarities as well. Maybe we can look forward to the return of the "King Cobra"...lol

I believe these claims were actually proven false by Ford. I could be wrong though.

Gas prices and fuel embargoes caused the mustang II. If it didn't happen right after '06, I am betting we are golden...for a while anyway.
