    I love it. It has so much character. Couldn't give a canary about the centre console or the radio not being touchscreen, not like I'd ever use the radio anyway!

    The new Shelby GT350 and GT350R are getting amazing reviews state-side, for that kind of money what EU cars are legitimate rivals to them for value for money? Your Porsches will only ever excel in handling, not performance. It's a strange world, no official word on whether the shelby will be coming to europe though just yet.

    It's cheaper... but not cheap cheap, right? i.e more than an optioned up Audi S3.

    The base S3 is only £2.5 less than the V8 Mustang.

    I know which I'd go for. :nods:

    How popular are these in the US (if they're sold there) @Ryzza5 ? Since they caved in and decided to go all out with the RHD model, they're getting increasinly popular over here. They offer a lot of value for money so i'm not surprised.

    erm, I don't live in the USA. I've seen a few around. A lot of it also has to do with local production of hot Ford Falcon's and hsv ending

    Yeah I knew that :( I meant to type AUS, got the 3 letters the wrong way around.

    Has there been any backlash against the Falcon/HSV ending production? Are ford decreasing their domestic output in aus or are they just changing which models are produced there?

    The first major car manufacturer to pull the plug on the UK post-brexit will receive a huge backlash imo, not sure it'd be deserved, but I can see a few boycotts taking place if a company makes thousands unemployed.

    The larger sedans with big engines have long been popular, but they never built local smaller cars with efficient turbo engines, so they were always destined the way of the dinosaur I guess. Holden, got a bit more flack because they took a huge government payout and then called it quits not long after iirc. Toyota and Mitsubishi also had local manufacturing cease in recent years. Many 'normal' drivers leaving Holden/Ford probably have ended up in a Kia, Hyundai, or Toyota. There's not a huge amount of anger - the biggest disappointment will be from enthusiasts and from older chaps out of a job.
