Does Ford Need To Shrink The Mustang?

Just this morning, a loyal Motrolix reader sent in this graphic comparing the dimensions of the Ford Mustang to those of the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, Toyota FT-86, and Mazda MX-5. After taking a good look at the image, we realized that the Mustang is considerably longer than the mainstream sports cars pictured here.

What’s more, the iconic pony car from Ford is the lightest muscle car (compared to the Camaro and Challenger) but is heavier than the vehicles seen in this graphic. All this poses an interesting question: does Ford need to shrink the Mustang’s dimensions to make it more competitive with new competition from Asia?
