    I think these will look absolutely beast when modded. I also am not a fan of whats being shown of the rear end as of now. I don't regret picking up my '14 instead of holding out for this though.

    The rear end is a step back from the 2014. The front I am up in the air about. I'm sure it will grow on my like the rest have. 2005-2009 is still my least favorite, so this is at least a step in the right direction from those.

    Not to crazy about the rear end either. Is it just me or do the rocker panel lines make it look kinda bent upwards in the middle?

    I like it, but the guys at Mustang 6G brought up a good point about some of the angles being off in this render. I still want it though.

    I like the side and the front. Not crazy about the rear end.

    I was expecting something better...it dint blow my mind. I still like it,but i think with some modding it can become better/nicer.

    Am I the only one that thinks the front looks like the front of a jaguar?

    I'm more interested in the tech specs than the looks. The promise of IRS (and not the band-aid excuse on the SN95 platform) pleases me. I'm not expecting a change in the front from the regular MacPherson setup but it would be interesting to see if they decide to go with an unequal length a-arm front setup instead.

    Very Euro. Don't care for it that much. Mustangs should look American not Euro

    Agreed. I am interested o see how well Ford can do a real IRS setup.

    And I would kill for a SLA front suspension but I seriously doubt that is going to happen.

    Has anybody noticed it doesn't have the iconic mustang side vents or even the body line where they go.

    Yes. It sucks. If you look at it on the side you can't see anything that says Mustang.

    I think it looks fantastic. And after reading more about the suspension, it is going to be the best handling/riding Mustang by a long shot. The front suspension and IRS are both taken from the BMW M5 parts bin.

    You can really only do so much retro, they're already put out 3 different designs in the last decade.

    Now that they're trying to push it in Europe it's time to drop the retro design and move onto something new.
