And in case a coupe isn't your speed, there is always an SUV.

Massively impressive, but it ain't going round corners.
If it's as quick as they say, and it can get the front wheels off the ground when in launches, getting it to go in a straight line won't be a walk in the park either.

Does the Demon Crate come with a year's supply of fresh undies? :)

Okay, I'll accept the hijack and do my best to further derail the conversation...I have no idea what Ford's marketing department was thinking when it produced the Speed Dating bit, or who it was targeting as the ideal consumer. The men come off as douchey, patronizing, dull and/or idiotic. So I can't see a "be like these guys, buy this car" appeal working. The woman has to suffer through all their crap and attitude and play dumb at the same time before finally being allowed to show what she can do. So I can't see women car shoppers suddenly deciding, "hey I must have a Mustang so I can finally shut up my annoying dates." Plus the fact it's her skills behind the wheel more than the car that impresses the dude-bros. She could have pulled the whole thing off in a K-car and still gotten almost the same--if not better--reactions from the guys.

Grading the entertainment value, it bit receives a passing grade, but I don't think the same can be said when marking for effective marketing impact.
