I Can't Let Go

In June of 2006 I bought a new 2007 black Mustang GT California Special with the GT appearance package, 5SP manual and 355 rear gears. It listed for 33k and was one of the first 2007s to arrive to S. Florida. It was love at first sight from every angle. I generally don’t keep a car more that 5 or 6 years but I have been smitten with my Mustang since day one when she came off the truck on to the Ford dealer’s lot. A feeling that so far has not been inspired by any later Mustang since. The style of the body just flows uninterrupted from front to back! Yes the newer ones might be faster and have more bells and whistles but my 2007 GT/CS just looks better going down the road and still makes me smile. Take a look at the attached picture and you will see what I mean. A big thank you to Hau Thai-Tang chief engineer for the 2005 to 2009 Mustang. Ford got it right that time around and I’ll keep her until Ford gets it right again. I just can’t let go until then.

Since the regional E8 platform (Falcon) is going to end production in 2016 and there is no panther platform cars in North America, we need a rwd muscle sedan to compete against the Chevy SS and Dodge Charger. We can't just let them take this segment. What about using a stretched version of the new S550 platform to build a new global rwd muscle sedan that can be sold around the world. It could use a high displacement V6, Turbocharged V6, and a 5.0 coyote V8 for starters. This would better suit performance people like us. The current Taurus is more of an ecnomy car and it's fwd. We could name this muscle sedan of the Mustang platform either "Falcon","Fairline", or even "Thunderbird". Obviously, Lincoln would benefit from this too because their in need of rwd models themselves. If their talking about competing against Bmw, Mercedies, Jaquar, and etc. They need some rwd. Even Cadillaic got their new Alpha platform to do just that. Plus, the next Chevy SS sedan and other GM models are going to use that platform. I think the global lineup is great but if you add some rwd sedans along with the Mustang, that would be great.
