Re: IF SVT Still Exists???
Never know! Dodge is coming out with a manual transmission offering in its new Challenger...so I'm sure Ford will bring something better to the table than a four year old Mustang platforms. In a few years V8's will be on the run in favour of blown V6's or I4 engines due to new CAFE regulations. GM's on a good comeback as well, but they're always too late to the party. I love how they compare their CTS-V to premium models such as Porsche and Mercedes; the General has to do something about those poor resale values before I'll consider the CTS-V a solid contender.
A few years ago Ford made a concept full size V10 sedan - that's the one they should have put into production this year! SVT could have added a blower easily pushing over 550hp to the rear wheels and gobs of torque. It would put the 300C and Charger on the run!
