Ford like all of the big three are more concerned about "traditional" performance models, while the Japanese and Europeans are used to promoting small displacement performance. There was much more excitement it seemed coming from the dyno demos of the '13 GT500. That's just the nature of America, most gearheads are traditionalist, that is until gas prices hit $5 a gallon and then we'll see.
Ford already has car's over in Europe & UK to bring over here, they've had for year's, it's a changed world now. Ford has the new model foci now over here, where is the ST? I'm waiting to, w/ everone else.
