    hmm, if they put a 350 hp V-6 in a Mustang where would the less powerful V-8 sit?

    My feeling is that the forced induction V6 doesn't belong in a Mustang. They should bring back the Ford Probe or something.

    Pretty much.

    I would definitely buy a new V-8 Mustang if it came with 350 hp. I could deal with it being shy of the Camaro by about 50 and still buy the car... unless I decided that I liked the Camaro more after kicking the tires.

    But 100 hp kinda makes me want to hold off until '11 or buy a different car entirely.

    I think it would be fine as long as it wasn't the GT model.

    If this is true, and the base GT is priced where they say it will be, which is about $27k, you can sign me up.

    Again, of course, assuming that I don't like the Camaro more after kicking the tires. But based on pictures alone, I prefer the Mustang.

    A 350 hp twin turbo base model Mustang would be absolutely insane.

    i prefer the camaro's styling, its just too big

    the mustang sits right were a performance coupe should in terms of weight.

    I think the Camaro looks neat and all... but I still prefer the Mustang's styling, inside and out. :dunno:

    That interior looks better than 95% of American made cars.
