My personal opinion... I don't care. If and when I get one the only mods will likely be 17 inch wheels and tires if the base does indeed come with 16's and possibly an exhaust system that is not too loud. For those who want to turn the thing into a drag car I'm sure someone will come out with low compression rotors and a big turbo kit.
As it stands right now, if you want to get a killer bang for the buck drag car get a 2003 Mustang Cobra... low 12's stock, just a pulley, exhaust, and a set of slicks away from low 11's.
