    Heard a whisper about the next Falcon.

    Have been told by a very reliable source that...

    The XR8 will be back. Not entirely sure if the name plate will stay the same though.

    Yes Ford and FPV will be selling V8 Falcons.

    Personally i think it's a good way to say goodbye.

    Heard about what it will look like as well. But i don't want to spoil the party lol.

    I can't wait to see it. You gotta wonder whether the last Falcon will sell well because of sentimentality (and hopefully a good product) or will sink because people have lost interest. I hope the former.

    It's fairly uncommon that a new product has a death notice before it even goes on sale.

    Yeah well why not...

    What I've told is that it's designed to look like the fusion (for obvious reasons). But what my source told me is that it's looks beefier. Big honeycomb grills/inserts on the front end.

    Re: Heard a whisper about the next Falcon.

    XR8 replaces GS but no word on GT, we're hoping it turns up as a limited run cameo at the end.

    FGII is not working as planned, sales have faded away and there could be more down days on the way.
    I wonder if Ford would consider fast tracking FH before October next year, without it I fear Falcon will be out for the count.

    Ford hasn't advertised the Falcon at all. I remember heaps of ads for the Territory when the new model came out but nothing for the Falcon.

    Re: Heard a whisper about the next Falcon.

    Ford doesn't want us to buy the Falcon, it doesn't fit their world car philosophy.
