As good as the new 2011 5-liter GT Mustang is what changes would you
like to see in future versions?
Weight: (Disclaimer -- It could weigh 3,200 pounds and I'd like to see
3,000; 3,000 and I'd like to see it under 3,000, etc.) But the
current 3,600 is too chunky. Pony cars, IMO, should never exceed
3,500... ideally less than 3,200. Please Ford, in the coming years
look for ways to cut the poundage.
Optional rear seat delete. Some of us are never going to use the rear
seats. A flat floor in the back would be nice.
Optional sport seats. I'm not talking about leather material or power
adjustable. I'm talking about something that offers some nice lumbar
support and side bolstering. Here's an idea -- make a deal with
Recaro, like you did this year with Brembo for optional brakes.
Optional functional ram-air hood: A Boss '9 style would be boss.
Steering wheel. You [finally] upped the sporting image of the base V6
model. Did you really then have to equip it with that cheap looking
steering wheel, AND make that same cheap-looking, family-sedan style
steering wheel standard in the base GT? Next time, make one, the
upgraded GT interior steering wheel standard in ALL Mustangs!
More interesting exterior color palette. Not that any of them are
terrible, but there's nothing that catches your eye, IMO, except for
the grabber blue. How 'bout a green, orange or a yellow?
Rear-end styling. The '05-'10 rear end had the right idea but didn't
quite hit the mark. For one, the material used for the tail light
lenses looked a little cheap. The '11's look slightly better, and the
sequential blinkers are a very nice touch, but the rear end
proportions seem off. The rear quarter panels over the tires, and the
rear bumper, are a little thick.
Anyone agree with me?
Would you suggest other changes? Post 'em.
