I doubt this is true. It seems that people routinely buy the current Mustang
Cobra, and remove the IRS and replace it with a solid rear axle. Besides, a
Mustang is not a "Sports Car" in the traditional sense. It is a Sporty Car, or
a Pony Car, or with the big V-8 - a Muscle Car.
I guess time will tell if you are right about the IRS. I care more about
actual performance than having all the right acronyms.
The current Mustang, with its solid axle and 260 HP, outsells
all of its competitors, by at least five to one, why would
anyone believe the 2005 with 300 HP would not do as well
if not better? ;)

It looks like Ford may be taking the car back to it's root
concept with the appearance of a pony car with attitude and
a bit of performance for the real world that you won't be
ashamed of. I like the fact it is getting away from the
"bubble" design with no character of it's own. With that
design, maybe folks will be able to tell it is a Mustang
without having to go look for a label somewhere. It has
been too long since someone stepped outside the wind tunnel
to design a car. I like the classic appearance that it is
ready to devour your ass and show you it's tail lights.
