Well on the bright side, I feel like we should be seeing order guides any day now since order banks are supposed to open in less than 3 weeks.

"The 2UR-GSE 5.0-liter V8 powering the Lexus LC 500 is an updated version of the engine found in the RC F & GS F. The engine is a naturally-aspirated 32-valve V8, and features D-4S direct fuel injection, Atkinson cycle operation, and optimized VVT-i."

It also has a 7300 rev-limiter vs 7400 or 7500 for the mustang.

It does have 12.3:1 compression vs 12.0:1 in the mustang.
Well if you use the Lexus as a performance comparison be prepared to be disappointed. The RC F only runs a 12.9 @110 but these also weigh 4040LBS.

True! They have released that 2018 fleet brochure. I've found it on the fleet website. It doesn't have much detail but you can see available packages and available options.

Yea and the LC500 weighs 4378, wtf? But it will have a 5.0 V8 matched to a 10spd auto just like the new mustang, interesting.

The 2017 RS was said to have only 325HP, right? Then the over boost for 10 sec per WOP throttle was introduced that got it above 350HP. If this function is coming to the ecoboost mustang, than it sure would be more than a torque increase.

To tie this all in, the v8 would need a suitable increase in power as well to match.

Isn't the LC500 just a rebadged Mustang?

I am starting to see some pretty sweet 2018's now. A neat looking deep metallic blue(purple tints) w/305's squared up on some sweet wheels and Recaros.

Sounded different too.

Yeah. It's kind of strange, they really could easily build up some hype with teaser images or videos just like Dodge did with the Hellcat. But Ford is just doing nothing. At the moment I just think order banks will open and the number will be there, without any big news.

To me this silence seems like the new power numbers are so unimpressive that they decided to say nothing

Does the camera on your phone not work?

(or do you see these where photography is forbidden? )

I thought I heard overall Mustang sales had dropped recently? So that could explain a lack of hype, and delayed production.

Well in the past (and with the 2018 F-150) order guides leaked out a couple weeks before ordering opened up. That's what I meant.
