    Wisconsin's White Tail Deer season has been getting extended because they're so out of control. And they have a disease spreading issue. The DNR can't get it under control fast enough.

    What can I say about this thread that hasn't already been said about Afghanistan. It's bombed and depleted...

    While I absolutely agree, (seriously we do not need a second 2.3 4 banger) there might be some underlying technical/engineering challenges that prevents the 2.7 engine family from fitting in the S550 without significant modifications (cross member to oil pan/pump clearance comes to mind for the 2.7 layout). I doubt Ford wants to spend to much money making a special model if they are just going to refresh the car in 2 years.

    Maybe it will be a front wheel drive "performance" Mustang.

    The new Probe.

    Aren't all the other ST models FWD?

    Is it too late to have a reserve opinion..?

    I predict the SVO w/Performance options = PP2.

    Hey now, that was my typo!
    IMO Ford should use the twin-scroll 3.5L v6 in the engine compartment. Turbo 4's are a dime a dozen.

    This new Mustang will sell well. Remember Ford sells more 4's than V8's. SVO , no way. Special Vehicle Operations from 1985 defunct . That tag will remain with the Foxes. ST is possible. I agree that the PP option on my 2018 inline 4 Turbo will no longer be available as a choice. A new 350-360 HP Mustang fits a nice niche. The S197 GT pictured here had 315HP.:flag:thL045MARD.jpg

    Plus, this thread reminds me of a particular sale thread on another forum I frequent... the original sale item was posted years ago, but the thread keeps getting bumped up by noobs asking if the item is still for sale, followed by half a dozen old timers chiming in with "trusted seller!", "cash buyer!", "any more photos?". And then there are the other old timers who just stop in to say "goddammit, I can't believe this thread is still going!", or "goddammit, why did I look at this thread again?"

    Love this stuff...

    Then again, maybe the new Mach 1 will come out with the 5.2L N/A GT350 block with a CPC and have 500+ HP???

    My money is on a Mustang ST, an entry-level Ford Performance car screams the ST brand.

    The 350 hp 2.3 EB was already leaked for the 2020 Mustang. Ford is missing a new ST car in the US, so in order to fill void left by the Fiesta and Focus ST this is their response. Essentially the Bullitt but ST styling instead and the 350 hp 2.3 EB.

    Likely start around 31-32k for the ST1 trim level.
