2015 Mustang GT

Ok...since no one else seemed to do it, I guess I will.

I gotta admit...when I heard the new mustang was going to be redesigned, I was pretty excited. Everyone in the car game has stepped it up quite a bit and I was expecting to see a radical and very aggressive mustang. Did it fall short for anyone else? I mean...it looks EXACTLY the same. I thought they were going to make it more fuzion-like...resembling an aston martin. At least the interior isn't TOO terrible? (although I dislike the shifter)

I think its a home run and will be very popular. I bet it will look stunning in person.

Really? This "throwback" bodystyle has been around since 2005...and now it'll go for another 4 years approximately. That's basically the same car (with some facelifts here and there) for 14 years. I guess I'm crazy :confused

The car is not ugly by ANY means. Guess I'm just disappointed because I expected a completely redesigned car

I don't think it looks the same at all

I also think the redesign is even more impressive mechanically

-200 lbs lighter
-irs
-more power

What's not to like?

I think you should take an other look at the pictures because this ain't even close to be the same car that's been around for a while now!

I love the look of this new Mustang, it looks a lot less like a muscle car and more like a sport car!!

Sure I see some ressemblance, after all it's still a Mustang. But this model has a lot more curves(I even see some Aston Martin in the first pic) and a wider and lower stance, it looks so much more refine, it's the first Mustang that I could see myself driving(but I see myself driving an M2 even more )!

I think it looks great. Are they still planning to use a flat plane v8 in the upper models? That would be pretty amazing

I think this car looks a little better than the one it replaces. To me, it has the same look, which means there is nothing to be excited about.

Kon, Luv ya man but I have to agree it's a major step forward. Can't wait to see what it weighs...and no more solid rear axle either. The Americans are here! 'Bout time they showed up.

Looks pretty similar to me, but I like the current one, so not a huge issue. I'm hoping they did cut the weight. I've heard anything from nothing to -400lbs. If the flat plane crank comes to be, I will most likely own one.

Hahaha thanks for the love, I know this car made MANY steps in the right direction. All I was saying is that the exterior didn't really reflect an "All New" design, as the hype led me to believe. I kinda had my heart set on it looking like a fuzion on steroids. Lol oh well

so far it looks like the projected weight saving won't be happening as the car is basically the same size as the outgoing model and will have more features & amenities as well...let's hope Ford proves this wrong

oh and hopefully the new 6mt gearbox won't be as problematic as the outgoing

can't wait to see what the new 5.0's output is, i might just have to get one at last as i always loved the way it looked. the new GT is supposed to be a better performer than the outgoing Boss, which was a very capable car already. excited for more information to unveil

I might be wrong about this (just rumor mill, unless someone can find the source), but I heard that the development team encountered too many issues with the flat plane design and that it was all but scrapped at this point.

Anyone else want to chime in on this one?

I've heard this as well but again through interwebz rumors. Also I heard that the exterior was much less retro-based like the outgoing model but at the last minute they added in more of the previous styling to appease the diehards.. Can't say for sure how accurate that info is either.

You mean the flat plane crank became too expensive of a proposition. Fixed

Hit the nail square on the head. The "Retro" look was decent at best the last body style. To do it again for the new body style. Not a bad looking car, but they get zero points for their "think outside box" mindset and originality.

Actually its sort of disappointing because I'd love to see American manufaturers design and build a car I could go for. Modern looks, state of the art technology, electronics and powertrain, potent power house, high degree of quality and materials of manufacture, and lastly a good price...

I guess this is asking too much from America unfortunately..

Looking forward to it.

Car looks great, however the side-view angle is a little strange.
