That doesn't look so unfamiliar at all.

I look at the current Mustang and consider it quite European-ish. Well, let's say I disliked when GM turned the Corvette into a mid-engined model, so I say thank God neither the Camaro or the Mustang would undergo a similar switch to mid-engine.

I'm no big fan of the Mustang but they do make a good A-arm front end.

There's this though: https://www.mustangspecs.com/ford-mu...-concept-cars/

[that web page choked my little Raspberry Pi with it's advertisements. I had to restart Chromium]

It's interesting that the 1975 concept looks almost exactly like the current model, but the concepts from the 80 and 90s look weird.



The original concept was a 1,200lb 90 inch wheelbase chassis with a 1500cc 90hp mid-engine. Sound like a Porsche RSK? IIRC it had 12" wheels.

I like the mid-engine Corvette but was rather puzzled why it didn't have a Cadillac badge allowing GM to keep a front engine Vette. Guess they want to keep the Camaro alive a bit longer.

Not a mid-Stang but a more advanced modern one.

Ford Driver Flips Finger To Camera Catching Possible AWD Mustang Mule

Are you ready for things to get weirder? Our sources on these spy shots are rather confident this is a powertrain test mule, specifically for all-wheel drive.
I'm tickled to death with the 2012 Infiniti G37X Coupe (AWD - Mid/Front Engine) I picked up about 3-weeks ago. Listed for 45K new, a real bargain at 14K now, even with 100,000 miles on it.

Mustang purest don't know what they are missing out on with simple RWD, but my brother a Mustang owner is eager to have an AWD Mustang so he can drive it in the winter.

I don't expect the aerodynamics to get "odd" though.

I'm pretty sure I could still drive RWD in the winter. I got my licence with it on ice, and went off to blast through snow drifts. I've never needed 4WD, nor a tow. One good tip - if you have an automatic transmission, put it in neutral for skid recovery so one end is not fighting the other.

Someone here had a sig line that read "Clutch in, steer only". Good advice on black ice.

kach22i -- That's interesting, a blown pantaloon. It reminds me of Viktor Shauberger's Trout Turbine. Definitely a rear motor.

Not sure why the Corvette retaining the front-engine layout would actually harm Camaro sales.

I must confess it was quite shocking to find out Ford would move away from the rear live-axle to IRS even on basic trims of the Mustang.

This year at Bonneville:

These cars must have superb engines, but I don't think anybody has a wind tunnel.
