Why are you guys so bitter and twisted about ecoboost Mustangs?

Is it because they are Fords or is it because they are quicker than your cars?

That's an awesome sold list. Well Done.

I hope that the mustang is a sales success and the Aussies don't just do the normal thing and bury their heads in the sand because it is from the US.

LOL come on Tony its just a bit of fun, cheer up, we're not serious.

EB Mustang is not close to being quicker than an XR8, XR6T, Redline etc and even if it was I still wouldn't buy one over an 8.

Pretty sure sales splits reflect the majority of opinion too...

EB Mustang has its place, just not for traditional type Mustang buyers.

Holy shit, nearly 100 sold without anyone even being able to test drive one...

Good to see the ecoboost so popular too. Dunno about them all being hairdressers either, I saw a few manual fast backs I'm there.
Everyone know hairdressers can't change gears.

Hmm, do you remember the first Mustang exports to Australia? Poorly engineered, six cylinder heaps of crap that FoA got lumbered with & got told to build them
& sell them. Fast forward to the Tickford era, despite their engineering prowess, this car was not a success either, financially or performance wise.
Like I said, as good or better than the domestic product. I await the first reports & road tests.
What was that song? "You never knew what you had, until it's gone"!!! Vale the mighty Falcon GT.:race:

I was too young for the first Mustang, just older enough for the Tickford one.

Totally different story with this Mustang. Simply because it is a Ford One vehicle. Built for the world, not just the US.

We won't know what we had until it's gone, very true. But Falcon is done (Part of the Ford One plan) After all, Ford is a US company and what they say goes.

Lets be thankful we aren't in Holdens spot. We still have heaps of exciting cars, Fiesta ST, Focus ST, Focus RS, Mustang, and I'm sure more future performance cars coming.

Not having a go at you, but can't we get the higher horsepower models in Australia?
I am more than happy to entertain a Mustang purchase, but I want what the US Domestic market gets.
After all the object of the game is to provide & sell the BEST performing Mustang you can build.

Basically, Ford severely underestimated the strong response to Mustang from Australia.
This was basically a tow in the water to see how the faithful felt whilce Falcon was still around.

If sales response remains strong, even with no cars to test drive, Ford will respond once they
get on top of production in North America.

The one good thing is that there will be upgrades and rolling changes through out the life of the vehicle
and buyers in Australia will get all the popular options that US buyers get.

4Vman
14th December 2015, 09:03 PM
I don't think Ford have underestimated Mustang, I remember they were talking about 2000 units per year which is what they're moving. The problem is the delay to get them here.

Apart form initial flurry they need to forecast to sustainable volume. I'd say depending on price 1-200 GT350's might have been possible but they're only building a few 1000 a year in the US and that equates to not worth it based on needing to RHD it for our consumption ratio..

At my Mustang dealer night they alluded to a lot of stuff that hasn't materialized yet.

What do you understand to mean by Factory backed?

Ford sell it but no warranty?

Really no different to going to Herrods or any other tuner.

My brochure i have in front of me for the kits available in NZ says:
" ...performance upgrades are endorsed by Ford, and feature factory level integration........

What does that read to you!
my dealer says factory warrantee applies , but obviously no claims to date to challenge it.
With factory warrantee intact, it would have to be a go,and up to 467kw ....!

how do you guys read that ?

Been reading some of the specs. They are talking about a 370kw/550Nm EB. It that is the case the EB will become THE cult car of the 2020s.

A 4 cylinder wiping the floor with all the SSs and XR8s will appeal to a HUGE number of our younger car enthusiasts.

They need to address this lead time soon because you'll have an issue when S550 gets a revision and you will no longer be able to supply what you're selling.

Either that or Ford will have to launch the revisions 12 months ahead of manufacture.

Any major revision.

If i order a car today based on the current specification/price and the lead time is say 13 months.

Then in say 3 months Ford release a new update with significant changes (eg BA to BF) and a price rise and the car goes into production before mine is due to be built there will be an issue.

Either

1) i'll be the winner and get a newer spec model for old spec pricing

2) Ford will say sorry your car will cost more and its changed spec or

3) I may not like whatever the update is.

Worst case is Ford AU cant place orders on the US for a period of time until the new model is released with full details.

Then we fall back into a backlog situation again like at the beginning.

They need to get lead times down to 6 months.

Well, Dazza, tbh you can be very lucky and get one if your in touch with a dealer regularly, or that they know you want one without any issue but grab what someone had ordered but backed out upon delivery.
Norm, spot on hence why I've asked.
The lead time is farfar too long, an update is coming no doubt but its all too much in the sky till delivery and what your getting and what you'll end up paying.

This is not possible, if an order falls over Ford take the car back and fill it with the next sold unit in the country. If a dealer is caught selling the car that has fallen over they risk a massive penalty. This is to speed up the process on getting sold units to the people who have placed a deposit and have been waiting longer than the guy who walks in wanting one right now.

It is what is is for now. Don't get me wrong, I wish I had a paddock of Mustangs that you could come and choose from.

We have already experienced the MY17 spec change and Ford have honored this with no price change to the customers who already have placed an order and are in the system.

We do seem to be getting a pretty good bunch of numbers and Ford have been improving time frames to Australia.

I said 12 months to be safe, this could change by next year the way things have been progressing in a positive way.

I can't see how this would work out well for these dealers. The unit needs to be contracted in the customers name from day one. It needs to be reported in the same name once it is delivered. If there is any change in the process Ford WILL see it.

I reckon alot of those are actually customers ordered Ponys and as I mentioned things have changed since placing their orders.
This is the problem with this long lead time.
My dealer mentioned this whilst checking up on my Sprint - x customer had lost his license since, placed the Pony he ordered on Carsales, $10k up and got it sold within 3wks..
I spotted a Sprint on Gumtree last week or so, wasn't the actual pic of the car, sold now it says.
