Maybe I'm nuts...and maybe its just because the picture isnt that clear, but to me it almost has lines like a 370z?? Its a little too Euro for me. Its not terrible, just not my cup if tea. I agree that the rear end looks nice.
I'd rather have a Mustang II.........with the 2.3.............manual..............hubcaps............vinyl floormat...........sparknock.............bad clutch cable...............you get the idea. That 2015 sux.
I saw this earlier today on my news feed. Looks nice from the back, but the lines overall don't seem to mesh well.
The front is bulbous and the rear is high and stubby, sort of like a Camaro. The side lines,doors / skirts look kind of Audi A5 like. The rear quarter looks Nissan 370Z, and the front overall doesn't match the rear at all. The rear is classic, with a touch of modern sports car (ie lower valence), but the front end is trying to be something completely different.
It's almost like the designers couldn't decide if they wanted to depart from the retro styling or not. It's a real hodge-podge mix match of styles all in one.
I think the article also mentions independent rear suspension (YAY!) but that the car is only down 200lbs. That's probably all attributed to just losing the rear axle assembly. If that's REALLY the case, I'm bummed. I mean, if it's only that much less in weight, and the styling went out the window just to make it shorter, eh, I'm glad I didn't wait....
BTW, anyone who is in So Cal this coming weekend, rumor has it that FORD will be having one of the new Stangs out at Cars and Coffee in Irvine this Saturday! Be there early, Mustangs get to park in the special front lot this time too!
