I think its awesome. Smaller displacement is the future. If that means that the manufacturer is hitting its Total fleet mileage requirements, that is a good thing. A turbo 4 cylinder sportscar is NOT a bad thing, just another option and its here to stay. Remember, the same company offering this car also has a plug in Fusion AND a little known pickup called the Raptor.
Look at it this way......a fast spooling 4 cylinder Mustang? Ford also has a small displacement v6 with a pair of turbos in a 5200lb pickup and if you thing its not going to sell, it accounts for about 40% of its sales. BTW, if anyone wants to prove that it sucks, tell me what day you want to go to the dragstrip.
Ill finish with this, i drove my Tbird from 98-2012, its been a member on the old BBS system and have been here a long time. Ive taken my car apart, did all the cool mods, put 22 track passes on it. But, times change, the tech improves, more power can be made with less and retain awesome mileage. My 'bird got 18mpg in town, my current in town trip average is 17.3mpg. And i have air conditioned seats!
