As Steph wrote lately, the rumor mill is churning with speak about a potential 4-door Mustang.

It began with a rumor on a discussion board, and the great people over at Automotive and Driver fleshed the story out slightly extra with some affordable hypothesis.

I don’t know if I’m the most important Mustang fan right here at TTAC – however I’m the one staffer who seems to be upon Fox our bodies the best way others stare upon 911s. When information is sluggish, I may be discovered trolling the marketplace for a Fox physique, only for shits and grins.

I’m unsure if my love for ‘80s pony automobiles makes me a Mustang purist, however I did see a Fb submit from an business colleague linking the C/D submit and making a remark about how he’d drive a Mustang sedan simply to make purists howl.

Which made me marvel – would I be offended if Ford constructed a 4-door Mustang?

Let’s put apart some market realities for a second. I think a 4-door Mustang, or a Mustang-based mostly sedan with a special identify, is unlikely. For one, Ford isn’t eager on sedans in the meanwhile (maybe you’ve heard). Second, the Chevy SS failed as a result of, for probably the most half, People don’t have curiosity in rear-drive sports activities sedans that aren’t luxurious automobiles (the Dodge/Chrysler gang being the apparent exception).

So yeah, that is unlikely, for my part. But when it occurs, will I howl the best way I did (together with Mr. Accardi) about Ford probably utilizing the Mach 1 identify on a crossover (a plan that’s in all probability off the desk)? Will I howl the best way the others did many years in the past when Ford needed the ‘Stang to go entrance-drive, main as an alternative to the Ford Probe? Will I howl the best way many did when the unique V8 gave approach for a four.6?

Truthfully, no. I gained’t. So long as the Mustang stays obtainable as a coupe, and so long as guide transmissions and V8 engines can be found, and so long as the car has a sporting mission, I gained’t moan about further varieties. I’m cool with the very fact that one model of the car is powered by a 4-banger EcoBoost. I’m cool with the very fact that slushbox-preferring consumers can go for an automated even within the GT. I can be cool with a deliberate hybrid model, so long as it’s not the one model.

My grievance concerning the Mach 1 was misuse of the identify – that moniker belongs solely on hello-po V8 Mustang coupes, for my part. I don’t care that Ford plans to construct a Mustang-impressed BEV crossover – simply don’t sully the Mach 1 identify (or Bullitt, or GT, or Boss).

I do have considerations about what a hypothetical Mustang sedan could be referred to as. Simply calling it “Mustang” may confuse car consumers who don’t know a spark plug from a cigarette lighter, and I think that can be a advertising mistake for Ford.

In fact, there’s a very good probability that a Mustang-based mostly sedan would get its personal identify, and may even be badged as a Lincoln. All Ford will say is nothing – the model simply threw some PR boilerplate at C/D when the Ann Arbor gang requested for remark.

So yeah, this Mustang boy is cool with a Mustang sedan, so long as the coupe goes nowhere. That’s, if this rumor is even true and never a lot horse dung.

Oh, to reside in a world during which a stick-shift Mustang-based mostly RWD/AWD sedan is bought alongside a resurrected Chevy SS and the Dodge/Chrysler twins. Sigh.
