Latest 2015 Front End Rendering, Probably Pretty Darn Close



This is a rendering based off of the spy shots from a few days ago. This is probably pretty spot on. Sure, there is no doubting the family resemblance to the Fusion, but it's got it's own look and still looks like a Mustang to me. I am excited to see what the overall proportions of the car look like, that's what I think will make or break the new design.

Not bad, reminds me of the Charger more than anything, at least at that angle. The only thing I wouldn't like in that case is all that black plastic.

1997 Mazda B2300 5-spd: a 4.6 cut in half
1972 Yamaha CT2 175cc: 2 stroke, also a 5-spd

I like it except for those big boxy things at the bottom of each corner. Even fog lights won`t make them look better.

The 1 Thing that this rendering is missing, is the Blue Oval "Ford" insignia (on the very front of the Hood that Ford Has Confirmed will be on the the S550 Mustang.....They said that they will place the Ford "Badge" on the Mustang, because people in other Countries may NOT know who the Actual Manufacturer is!................Absolutely Ridiculous!!

I like the fact that I have no Ford badges.

That render looks awesome! Hope it does look like that in reality.

I vote for NO BLUE OVAL EMBLEM. Fox Mustangs were the only Mustangs to not wear a running pony badge, which takes a lot of identity from the car.

They can place a blue oval on the back if they want, that´s as much as I´ll take...

Not to be a debbie downer, but the fake gas cap on our mustangs has Ford printed on it, it's hard to see but it is there.

I agree with the blue oval on the hood taking away from the car, but then again I am not too excited about the s550 design so far.

My 18" GT wheels had the blue oval in the middle of each. So that's four blue ovals right from the factory.
