And then the new Corvette SS/Blue Devil will arrive and no one will care about this car anymore.

Based on what? Plenty of Mustang and Ford fans will car..plus muscle car fans. Based on that logic no one would care about a Ferrari when the Blue Devil gets here...but I guarantee you they'll still buy them. Besides the Mustang competes with what will be the Camaro and the Challenger.

Anyway it sounds cool...but hopefully they put more effort into the suspension tuning than the normal GT-500...like what Roush did. Also it would have been nice for someone (anyone!) to swap out the live axle for an IRS.

You just answered it for me. Who wants a car that needs 600hp to fly with the 4x0hp boys?

I don't understand why people compare the Corvette and Viper with the Mustang / Shelby variants...it's apples to oranges. I say more power to Ford if they want to put out these super-high hp Mustangs...at least some manufacturer is doing it.

It's a good move for keeping the interest in the Mustang alive, but I'd rather see the money go towards the Interceptor program and keeping the Fusion competitive.

These cars are wasting very little of Ford's resources. They are being transformed by Shelby Automobiles, Inc., from Ford built Ford Shelby GT500's..... with "input" from Ford Racing. This has very little affect on Ford's bottom line.

I really don't mind the Mustang, and would be happy getting a used one... something I might have to do with all the pollution bullsh*t that's going on in my country and province.

Now, if I could do some gentle modifications to make it look as bad-ass as the Shelby above, then I'd be really happy. 8)

Exactly. Now If I could only get Ford to bring back the 69 Mach 1 we would be all set...
