People need to get past the idea that it's not going to be a reincarnation of a '67 GT500 Eleanor or a slightly refreshed version of the '13-14 Mustangs. Retro is gone and I welcome it. I've owned 4 Mustangs and I don't think any of it's heritage is lost by adopting a more modern architecture and a much needed facelift.

If the Mustang is to survive on a global platform, they need to evolve or die. If that means it adopts a more modern appearance and improved suspension geometry along with a higher level of tech to keep this pony under control, then I think Ford will have a winner on their hands.
The way I see it, the Mustang is an iconic American muscle car. Ford should just make a different car for the global market, like the fusion or focus who do have a long history. And anyways, the globe loves the classic mustang muscle car.

1967 Sport Sprint 200, 3 speed standard, Midnight Blue, June 7. No A/C, manual steering and drum brakes. Added dual exhaust and front disc brakes.
