And I'm willing to bet it won't. I spent three days in a 5.0 and while it is a great bang for the buck, it isn't going to be swaying a bunch of buyers in the luxury sedan market.
It had considerable body roll and did not inspire the confidence that the F (or of course C63/M3) does when pushed hard in a corner. The interior, while a step up for the 'Stang, is nowhere near luxurious. Sure, the stitching on the seats looks cool, but they have zero bolstering and support.
Great car for $30K less than the luxury sedans but not a car I would ever buy.
