ALSO cant wait for the S550 to EMBARRASS the camaro...
although im a big mustang lover i know GM has something big planned for the next camaro just as the Mustang is going under a big change here.
expect it to be on the alpha platform and possibly have some cadillac tech in it by then.

That is one **** of a diet. I am interested to see how they are going to pull that off.

The last Mustang was pretty bulky. They are going to take down some of the measurements and use some lighter materials mostly, but it shouldn't seem like this impossible chore. Mustangs have been smaller, much smaller, in previous models so i don't think that shaving some weight off the next model is such a tall order.
