you can’t realistically say a RWD v8 coupe isn’t a sports car, it absolutely is. It’s a grand tourer sure, but that is a subcategory under the umbrella of sports car. You need to look at it through the lens of all cars on the road, you can put a mustang next to a genesis and really truly say “the mustang isn’t a sports car”?Evolving into a more expensive, less useful product is appealing to an even smaller market, which would be the wrong way to make sure it wouldn't die. That would have the opposite of the intended effect. The Mustang is the best seller in it's market category, you can't really improve on that.
And let's discuss how everyone here accepts the Mach E as a Mustang.
ETA; no, the Mustang is not a sports car. IDGAF what pre-determined category the US government puts it in, that doesn't make it a sports car. And in the context of this particular discussion, the true definition of "sports car" truly matters, it's not a minor thing.
If you think a Mustang is the same type of car as a Corvette, 718, F8, Miata or McLaren, you're kidding yourself.
every single change to an established car line always generates this kind of response. How about the absolute madness that erupted when the live axle was removed? “It’s not a mustang” “lost its way” “not true to its roots”
But at the end of the day, there will never be a mid engine mustang. S650 is likely going to be the last gasoline mustang ever produced and it’s not mid engine
