The SVT Mustang coupe will be shown there, possibly a convertable version as well. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/bow.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>from thecarconnecton:<p>:SVT Still Kicking, Ford Says<p>With no cars currently on the market, thereve been plenty of rumors working their way through the industry grapevine about the future of Ford Motor Co.s high-performance SVT unit. But reports of its demise have been greatly exaggerated, the head of the brand-within-a-brand told TheCarConnection.com, lifting a turn-of-phrase from Mark Twain. Wed hate to give up on the brand equity weve established over the last 10 years, insisted Hau Thai-Tang, the new boss of SVT, who until recently led the development of the new, retro-styled Mustang. An SVT version of the Mustang will be unveiled at the upcoming New York Auto Show, said Thai-Tang, and though he wouldnt confirm production plans, sources told TCC its a bit more than a year away. Several other possible SVT models are under consideration, with an emphasis on adding a more mainstream product, such as a high-performance Fusion sedan."<p>The owner of <A HREF="http://www.themustangsource.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.themustangsource.com</A> talks to HTT via email personally:<p>[Brad]: Can you confirm or deny if there will be a Cobra ragtop?<br>Hau Thai-Tang: Come to New York.<p>Most likely the 06 Explorer will show as well, NAIAS is too early to show one of their sales leader's successors.<br><BR><BR>

Are you sure about that. As I undersdtand it the SC is not do for replacement any time soon. HOwever Lexus is supposed to release another SC clas vehicle but smaller in size to the current SC. so they'll have 2 convertibles.

Naga Royal Guard
03-09-2005, 09:24 AM
it stands to reason the SC would at least be facelifted since its listed on lexus.jp and currently wears the Toyota Soarer badge in Japan - i dont think they wouldnt just slap the L on the same thing and sell it there after entirely new IS and GS models

i cant wait till NYIAS, im going sunday and tuesday. camp jeep was fun last year, but i got stuck in the silver grand cherokee they had, which is identical to mine, i really wanted to get in one of those wrangler unlimiteds. maybe they will do something similar because isnt the new commander supposed to debut there?

my prediction 4 camp jeep: last year rescue concept was there on display. this year the gladiator and hurricane will b. last year like 5 new gc's were on display and not available to ride in but this year they will be and the commander will b on display. also i would hope 4 a better course

o, the mercedes area downstars was the only crowded area, you had to stand in a line to sit in one. Did anyone go in the simulator for Suburu, I wanted to go but there was a 2 hour wait

the downstairs area for mercedes wasnt too bad when i was there..i had to wait maybe 3 minutes to sit in the red G because some guy was on his cell phone <p>but maybe thats because the show had only been open for 10 minutes when i was down there. did anyone park at the place listed by the autoshow at 42nd street and 9th avenue?? i drove there, and to my surprise the clearence was 6'2" and i was in a 2001 LX470...no way in hell i was fitting in there. parking was my only problem, ill never drive to the show again..they should have made arrangements at a place that can accomadate everyone

There was a three hour wait for the simulator this year, last year it was only 15 mintues, nearly the same exact time. I took the train, 40 minutes to get there, walked 3 blocks east from Penn Station, and that was that.

The upstairs area was crowded as usual but the downstairs where hyundia and other car and truck manufacturers was empty. Isuzu was the most empty with probably 2 people there but mercedes had crowds of people for their SUV's

other than kia, suburu, hyundia,kia the rest downstairs were just the truck and SUV's. What i ment by empty was that it was not really crowded except for Mercedes,Lexus,Nissan,Toyota and Honda. I think weve talked this show to death
