    Mustang turns 40

    No flames please just expressing my own observation.

    40 years of Mustang and Turbo turned 30 several months ago.

    What a world of difference in engineering. Still after 40 years Ford has a lot of catching to do with Mustang, not to Turbo but the C2.

    Thank you Porsche

    Re: Mustang turns 40

    I gotta ask.

    Did you expect the mustang to morph from an affordable sporty car for the masses (150,000+ units a year), and into an exclusive mega-dollar supercar?

    A lot of catching up to do? In comparison to what? A 996 C2? Anyone see the irony in comparing a 17,000-34,000 dollar mustang to a porsche costing 4 to 6 times as much? What did you expect?

    You're comparing apples to oranges. For what the mustang is, it has come a very long way and its history has been nothing short of success. And the fact that it is one of the few muscle era cars still produced speaks for itself. On top of that, it is very popular to this very day. Just a few weekends back, over 100,000+ people, and 3,000+ mustangs (some from as far as Europe and Ausi) were in attendence at the mustangs 40th anniv celebration. An article i've read also mentioned how they have the most clubs and dedicated enthusiasts of any car produced. That kind of following says a lot.

    In the end, you're going to have to realize that you're comparing two very different cars with two very different objectives. Would it be right to compare a C2 to a McLaren F1 or Enzo, all the while shunning the C2 for not having the oats to compete with the F1/Enzo on the technological and performance level? I think not.

    Anyways, hats off to both Ford and Porsche and their Mustang and 911. Very few cars have lasted as long as they have, and very few cars mean as much to their enthusiasts as these two.

    Now this is a Ford that can be compared to a Porsche .

    Well said! BTW, I like the looks and the simplicity of the new Mustang
