I guess, ironically, any electric motors would add weight back in to anything saved from the core body-shell........but the instant torque at zero revs is to be welcomed, assuming those motors are purely there to back up/assist the next-gen Coyote ;)IMHO we will see a hybrid and/or torque vectoring awd by mid decade.
I want a affordable sporty Mustang I can buy. When the Corvette goes mid engine the price of the car will go out of reach for a lot of people and the car will die. Keep the Mustang in the niche it is in I want it to be around another 50 years. No matter how much I want a Ford GT and I do it will always be that poster or calendar car for me and lots of others.Sharing platforms across lines keeps prices lower...
for many the decision becomes:
Do you want an affordable sporty Mustang or do you want another awesome car you can't afford on a poster/calendar?
