Saw an article AM posted on Facebook, it's rumored they might give the new gt500 the 1000hp twin turbo cobrajet setup. That'd be pretty awesome.

horse power increases on a curve. weight is linear. So very basically 100 HP increase is less effective than 50 LB decrease, above 400 HP. Saving weight is very important, that is why the major racing bodies have a minimum weight rule.

Here is my 2 cents on the future of the Mustang...

V6 still the base engine but, should be a single turbo eco-boost with 350hp.

GT still has the 5.0 but hp increase to 450.

I was told the SVT is dead and those type of cars are now designated ST so Ford should bring back the Cobra with a twin turbo 5.0 with 600hp. Called the Cobra ST.

Shellby should become a Hennessy type of car builder for Ford you buy a base GT send it off the Shelby and they build it up for you.

I kind of made that assumption on my own and am glad that AM is helping back it up lol. If you look at the previous Cobra Jets they have had the same drivetrain as the next generation Shelby's. But that's ust me playing conspiracy theories.

SVT cars will not be called SVT they are now ST example: Focus ST. A Dealer told me the SVT is gone. Maybe I should have explained that better. My bad.

That would be seriously bad news trying to compete against a TTV6 base Camaro with an Ecotec 4 banger. What sucks is that Ford has to put out the new Mustang before GM puts out the next Camaro. So once the boys at Chevy see the specs of the new Mustang, they just have to one-up the specs by a little. It's like cheating.

Chevy has been cheating with the Camaro since 1967. They will never stop following the Mustang!!!

Even their customers agree... Chevy quit making the Camaro because of poor sales... They can thank Ford for the retro look that brought back the Camaro. Chevy Camaro is a follower and never the leader like the Stang!!! Including on the track. LOL

You will not see SVT on a Ford car anymore. That is what I'm getting at. The SVT teamis still together but the V is gone!!! The salesman was at a Ford training seminar and heard it first hand from Ford. These are not my words just repeating what the salesman told me. He also said the eco-boost will be in a future Mustang!!!

Last night while enjoying my first meet and greet with my mustang club I met a member who showed up in his Ford Focus ST. A few of us went for a short cruise and the Focus St came along with us. That ST was bad a$$. Now I'm not saying this Focus was faster than a factory V6 mustang but damn, I was definitely impressed. That ST moved sweet. I later got talking to the owner of this ST and asked what the hell work he had done to his engine to make that Focus so fast. He laughed and said nothing. He said its completely factory stock, 4 Banger, ecoboost, turbo engine. Factory power was like 260 HP and around 280 plus torque. My eyes were then wide open and could not believe the power this 4 Banger had. OMG.

I can't imagine why people would give a rats a$$ if Ford gave the next generation a 4 banger, turbo, ecoboost, 350 HP factory stock engine. Holy ***** that car would be fast. Or a turbo ecoboost, 6 Banger. My god those ecoboost engines are powerful.

I would just get the 5.0L, if I want fuel economy then I'll just get a focus. I understand it for the euro market, and I'll guarantee it will be available here, but I doubt it will be popular with anyone. Except maybe teenage girls who's daddy's don't want them to have power.

To put a 4 cylinder in a mustang is like putting a 6 cylinder in a Ferrari Enzo it's just wrong, mustangs are supposed to be in your face owning the road, not... let's get 40mpg and sound like a Honda... It's supposed to be loud proud and fast

You obviously forget about the SVO mustang which was as quick as the gt of its time. It would make for a nice factory sleeper as well, and get better fuel economy.

About as in your face as it gets from a measly 4banger.

Okay then I'll put a turbo on the gt and see if it'll keep up? The svo was 2.3l turbo charged 4cylinder with 200hp but the gt was a v8 with 200hp and naturally aspirated... I mean I see what your sayin but those only lasted 2years?? 1984-1986, cause a 4banger does not belong in a mustang, and if your wanting to buy a mustang for fuel econmy then your in the wrong market.. I'll go to the Honda lot for one of those again mustangs are supposed to be beasts on the roads, untamed, and of course LOUD and not sewer pipe loud

Who cares if they put a 4 banger in it??? It's not affecting you in any way. Ford is just keeping up with the times. Hating on a 4 cylinder mustang is just ignorant and its just as bad as the GT guys who hate on the sixxers. They're all mustangs whether it be a 4, 6, or 8 cylinders, were all brothers and sisters so don't hate just because its not an 8

I agree, as long as they keep a V8 in the mustang as an option then they can do what they want as far as concerned!

The SVO yes, but the turbo 4 cylinder gt was around longer. The 2.3l was the only other option from 87-93.

They are. Ford wouldn't ditch all that R and D they did for the coyote. I heard they are gonna have the 5.0, ecoboost sixxer, and ecoboost 4 cylinder

I think the fear is Ford making a 4 banger eco car with a 19 sec 1/4 time. That's the first thought when someone says 4 cylinder Mustang. But if it's Turbo and quick, then it'll be ok. It's a Mustang and it needs to have performance even in the base model, just like the currect V6's. They're not GT's but they still can haul ***.
It's not GT guys hating sixxers, everyone just wants the best vehicle. It's the same way the Shelby guys feel towards the GT's. Their cars are faster stock.
