I'd like to see a new thunderbird, as long as its not tacky like the last generation of thunderbirds. maybe bring back the turbo coupe?
Its really setting up like it could work. Since the DEW98 Ford didn't have a platform they could justifiably put one on anyways, the SN95 and S197 are worse than MN12. With this 2015 Mustang having IRS it could work if they extend the platform, just as they did with Fox with everything in the 80s. Its supposedly being modular for global cars, but then again they said that about MN12 too when it was being developed. The new Ecoboost Mustang engine would be perfect for a Turbo Coupe in what would make for a sweet repeat of 1983. I'm also excited about seeing what Lincoln does with it, even though they will probably **** it up like they did the LS...
