I think I understand, C.M.
like
if some ripped little gymnast on a "program" loses weight
while a 360# football lineman CLAIMING the same "program" gains even more
only one of them was really trying to lose weight

think you've seen my lunatic-fringe theory but:
the S550 Mustang we're getting is what it is because
FoMoCo drastically changed-or-postponed their plans not that long ago (18 months?)
so
the S550 isn't smaller (just a bit lower)
the S550 isn't lighter
the S550 isn't an AllNew Evos-inspired style
imho^

Looks nice. A bit "Honda" at the front, but is OK. Good job considering the limitations for the designers imposed by the small size and purpose of the car.

I did read it and it doesn't make sense to compare the 2 cars weights. Simply being sportscars and RWD does not put these in the same league nor justify thinking that they should be similar in weight.

He didn't say that they should be similar in weight though, just that one company managed to remove a healthy percentage of the weight of their car while the other one actually added some. There are other things to consider, but it has nothing to do with one weighing more than the other.
