btw - I haven't seen any recent speculation about a liftback
(current prediction thread)
but imho that's no reason to give up yet
I think that's a spam account. It works for me too.

Re: Mustang Liftback.

more than a liftback, i will love to see an extremely fastback model, like the 1971-1973 sport roof Mustang Mach 1

Re: Mustang Liftback.

There should be a liftback and notchback just like the old days.........throw in a bi-plane spoiler on the liftback and we are all set.

Re: Mustang Liftback.

I certainly wouldn't object if the liftback became the main bodystyle, but there are specific applications where the coupe makes more sense. For drag-racers, I'm sure they'd still prefer the coupe because of its lighter weight and (presumably) better chassis rigidity. However, if Ford could keep the weight down and chassis rigidity up with the liftback, you won't hear me complain.

That would be great, but if they could do that they may as well apply it to all Mustangs, there wouldn't be a point in having two separate cars.

There is one problem, whenever it was one, it was always the one with the faster back, and the current bodystyle is already heavily influenced by fastbacks Mustangs of the past . . . I can't see how the back could get any 'faster' . . .
