Unless it is significantly cheaper or a lot better on gas ( which doesn't seem to be the case in current ecoboost models ) why the hell would you go with a turbo 3.5L instead of a N/A V8 which has much more potential to mod for power?

    Yes it will be slightly lighter in the front with the 3.5L and it will be exciting to see but only as a 3rd option or if it replaces the V6.

    Way up high.
    Yeah, they haven't added DI to the motor yet either so it's still got room to grow. I'd love to see a FI v6 option, but am eager to see what's coming either way.

    I really want a BRZ, but I think at this point I'm going to wait to see what the next versions of vette and mustang bring.

    I have owned many Mustangs and love them. I live in Ohio. Having a Mustang GT here means you must have a winter car. The 2013 WRX I now have is a do everything car for me. The 4 doors make it very useful. I like the smaller size vs the 2005+ Mustangs. AWD is a definite plus. With my other interests, finding time to cruise in a garage queen occasionally just wasn't practical. My WRX provides my need for speed anytime I drive.
