    pretty cool article which takes an in depth look at some killer new power plants on the horizon. The most intriguing to me is the new "Voodoo" twin turbo v8:

    The first is a twin-turbocharged V-8, code-named “Voodoo,†which displaces between 5.0 and 5.5 liters and, most intriguingly, has a “flat-plane†or 180-degree crankshaft, as Ferrari has used in its V-8s since 1973. This configuration, also found in the late Lotus Esprit V-8, is akin to connecting two four-cylinder banks to a common crankshaft. Flat cranks theoretically improve power, throttle response, and the soundtrack at the expense of greater vibration. This EcoBoost V-8 will produce between 550 and 600 horses.


    I was kind of saddened to see they really scaled back on ditching the retro look completely, but I suppose they know best.

    You'll have to click the link as I couldn't hotlink the 360 degree pic in the link from Car and Driver.

    I think the back will be much more "euro" at launch due to the fact it'll be a global platform.

    The Trinity power plant is on it's way out. You'll be able to pick a GT500 pretty reasonably when the new car is out... hell, we have an '07 and an '09 on our lot right now.

    "While the new Mustang will keep the somewhat hefty proportions of its predecessor, exterior dimensions will shrink ever so slightly. It will also cease to have stand-alone styling within Ford’s lineup."
