500 lbs lighter and a 10 speed tranny. Makes sense, but most of us are buying these cars cause they are 4 door family cars.

Did I miss something? I didn't know our FS weigh 4200+lbs and I thought we were faster than a 13.9 stock? So we cost the same, are faster, and have 4 doors and AWD. I'll stick to the FS all day.

Active: 17' Fusion Sport - Lightening Blue Metallic |Custom Exhaust.
Active: 17' Fiesta ST. Bone stock for now.
Active: 16 Focus. (It's my TURO car)
Active: 2000 Camaro SS. Intake/exhaust.
Retired: 14' Silverado 4x4 leveling kit. Straight piped
Retired: 05' C6 Corvette SLP 465 Pkg
Retired: 00' Z28. SLP lid and flowmaster 40
Retired: 02' Wrx 4D. Cobb Stg 2
Retired: 91 Non-Turbo Rx-7

Yeah, another misleading test results.
Sport does 13.6/13.7 and 5.1 to 5.0 0-60.
I think the mustang has impressive times with the 4 banger and RWD.

The same thing happened when the Gen1 SHO came out. Ford didn't want the 4 door family car turning faster times then the Mustang.

Cause it's $50k and has those 3 letters emblazoned everywhere on the car

If the stinger drops to FS price territory, I might consider trading in for one (a RWD one).
