It's only going to get worse as Ford looks at a smaller and lighter chassis and IRS on the new car. The new M3/M4 better be impressive, because the 2015 Mustang (the Aston Martin look) already looks like it would win a head to head on paper with the E92.
I'm not too fond of this euro styling mustang; I really like the retro Mustang look but I guess times are changing once again. IMO the next gen Mustang will surely be a bargain track beast.
