    I am in agreement. I remember 15 years ago now my premium GTs msrp was something in the mid/high 17s. Fast forward til now and we’re in the low 40s. Granted inflation (sure) & about 200more hp along with more tech inside but still a mustang. But is it really worth the extra close to 30 G’s? Close to 2grand annually in 15 years. Wages Sure haven’t increased as rapidly as prices, housing, foods and technological advantages have. Maybe i am living old but I sure ain’t going to be being new sports cars. Especially when it seems more now than ever sports cars can be had at a decent price with low miles just a year or two old. Not 100% sure if it’s because people want to keep them prestigious or they’re too busy working to pay bills they can’t drive. I don’t see manuals dying tomorrow but maybe close to it it happening within the millinial gen for the US. It’s far too popular and relied upon overseas to end anytime too soon. But it is telling when Ford is going nob only with a GT500.

    mustang inspired is cool, but the pony emblem doesn not belong on it.

    I saw the Uris for the first time last week. What an eyesore that thing was.

    Man, isn't it going to just be great when this thing starts selling by the boatload, and Ford sees no reason to continue production their "single-use platform, high investment cost" 2 door Mustang when their NEW 4 door electric crossover "mustang" is selling in droves?

    Can't wait to own one of the last 2 door Mustangs ever made!

    First when Hyundai Genesis came out it came out as a model. Now it's a seperate division brand which is what I think Ford is also trying to do.
    Soon our Mustangs will be called Mustang whatever along with Mustang CUV SUV Sedan and so on lol

    I could see it as a second vehicle for someone who is really rich. Like some of my neighbors have golf carts that they use to drive around their property. OK for short commutes and for people who don't keep cars for very long. Not good for people who like to drive farther or own older vehicles.

    Electric vehicles are not for me - especially with the current technology. I just don't like the idea of batteries as they currently are constructed. Maybe if they figure out a new battery technology that doesn't use heavy metals, doesn't wear out so quickly, can be completely recycled and can be filled very rapidly.

    I also don't like the idea of electric cars due to the potential danger of working on them. If I buy a vehicle, I'd like to be able to fix it. And working on an electric vehicle in my opinion is like working on a gas engine vehicle while the engine is running. That electrical energy is always there ready to zap you if you touch the wrong thing.

    I won't go into the Mustang image being used in an SUV. I think others (especially Cobra Jet) have expressed opinions very similar to mine already.

    you guys are crazy. inspiration doesn't mean anything other than conceptual design cues. not another mustang branded vehicle. electric cars are the way of the future and will put just about all our cars to shame in the torque department. i for one, am excited to see this and hope it is a Tesla model X killer. mustangs will only survive as long as ford does so you need to open your eyes to the future market.

    I don't like the fact Ford has now used 2 iconic, historic names in a way that doesn't reflect or respect the past. This new Mach E...using the name Mach is ignorant! And calling the 2020 GT500 a GT500 breaks with past history because its no longer offered with a manual transmission at all. Sorry Ford, not everyone likes your newest offerings....unless they are a millenial.
