      I doubt ford will make a mustang with that drastic of a body change. I agree with PlatinumGLS I really want the Retro "Muscle" Cars to die off... All of them, Charger, Challenger, Mustang, and Camero
      Did i miss any?
      The Mustang is more a continuation, like the 911, Astons, and the like. It's as though the original just kept evolving to this point. The Challenger is a decidedly retro car, and I love it. The Camaro is just a styling mishmash that mixes '67 and '69 cues with futuristic proportioning.

      Retro is making a new car look old, which is different than what the Mustang has been doing. It's subtle, but it is different. Andf it's nice to have those choices on the market. Not every car has to be futuristic.
      I love cars, but the problem is they are like schroedinger's hobby. They're always in a quantum superstate of being both awesome and a huge waste of time and money... until observation momentarily forces them into one state or another.

      Charger headlights with a Viper rear? That's what I'm seeing.....
      Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?

      All Ford has to do here, is build a cheap DB9. Use steel instead of aluminum, cheaper leather, and throw the Coyote V8 in it. the body is already there, and the market has proven people will buy a 40-60k mustang. The real problem is also coming up with a car you can sell in stripped form for 25k.

      My first car was a 1968 Mustang Fastback in Highland Green. It vaguely resembled the Bullitt Mustang accept that McQueen's had a 390 and a Manual transmission, whereas mine had a 302 with an automatic. My second Car was a 1969 Mustang Fastback ( Sportsroof ) in Winter Blue, with again, a 302 and an A/T. I've also had a few Scirocco's and also an ' arrest me red ' Corrado. Which I did happen to get a speeding ticket in.

      In any case, I think that this Mustang is the best looking 'stang since the 1969 model. It is the first Mustang in several decades which can actually be called sleek. Also, I like that it resembles an Aston Martin. Remember that James Bond ( played by Sean Connery ) drove a Bright Red 1971 Mach I in a wild chase through night-time Las Vagas in ' Diamonds Are Forever ' . I could see 007 driving a gun-metal gray version of this Mustang very easily. Maybe Ford could use this to promote this next 'stang, as several Mustangs have appeared in the Bond films .

      really disagree with this. I think the Mustang styling has jumped around a lot between different generations
      If your car feels like it's on rails, then you're going too slow.

      Front is a bit ugly, but DAT ASS! About time the Mustang got some body lines and curves back, its been slab sided for a little while now.

      And I, for one, am looking forward to the idea of a turbo 6 being available along with IRS. People said the ecoboost engine wouldn't work in the F-150, and now that's the most desired and best selling engine for that truck. I fully expect the Mustang to follow suit.

      I like it, but it doesn't look like a mustang. Then again, the foxbody definitely didn't look like a mustang, but ended up being wildly successful.

      Apparently, the future looks like an old Hyundai Tiburon.
