For those that say an electric mustang or any alternative fuel wouldn't be a true mustang or true muscle car, they are right, but so what? I don't believe a V6 or 4-banger mustang is a true muscle car either, but they make them for the people who love the look but don't have the money or whatnot and sell tons of them. I don't believe there should ever not be a Mustang V8 option but why not have electric power also? in 2011 they are going to build a turbocharged, direct injection V6 as an upgrade from the 4.0 v6. Is that a true mustang? no. I wouldn't even buy one. But I still think it's a good idea because it will get way better gas mileage than the 4.0 and make more power than the current 4.6 V8. So by all mean, there is a market for V6s, why not make a good one, why not make an electric mustang?

I realize the power still has to come from somewhere but my understanding is that it costs less to plug-in than to put gas in a car, not to mention you can generate the power through solar, tidal, wind, etc.
