If you are still on the fence on the 2015

SVT performance forums has the best picture array I've seen on the 2015 yet including interior and engine compartment shots. These really helped me make up my mind as I was a bit of a fence sitter leaning a little towards "no like". Now I've been pushed off the fence and definitely "no like" at this point. The head on front end shots look hideous and the rear is a close behind (pun intended). The interior is the strongest part of the redesign, but I'm not sure about the P51 Mustang aircraft cockpit theme.

I guess the real litmus test will be eventually seeing it in person.

I am on the fence as well, but I will wait to see the car before I decide. The best new feature I have seen to date is that yellow is back in color lineup.

Steve,

As you said, the SVT Performance website has some great pictures and information on the 2015. I'm a fan of automotive change as long as it is for the better. If you look at the info on the mechanical improvements with the engine and transmission for the 2015 that are posted there, especially some of the upgrades to the engine by way of the Boss 302, it looks pretty impressive.

Some people didn't like the looks of the '63 Vette. Some didn't like the 1970 Z28. Going from a 1970 to a 1971 Mustang: What were they thinking?

I like the new look. Yeah, it's easy for me to say since I'm not in the market for one, but as I have stated before, you have to judge the car by how it performs while you are behind the wheel. Engine and transmission refinement, IRS, a new interior as well as the slightly new exterior will more than likely be a great package for those in the market for one.

If Ford had not taken a chance back in the early '80s by upgrading the 302 in the Mustangs rather than four cylinder us to death, we'd all be driving different cars. I think that those 302s were putting out 155hp if I remember correctly. The 2015 will be over 420 and the car is light years away from the look of those Fox body Mustangs. I had an'87 for thirteen years. Just my .02 cents!

You hit the nail on the head - The front end clip is Hideous. Doesn't say Mustang to me. More like 94 Honda wanna-be. Ford sold out on the fron-end. The 3/4 rear-view isn't bad. Glad I bought my '13' GT. I will be keeping it for a long time.

I love the 11-14 and the '15. Not sure about the Honda comparison...

It will be hard to transition from the '05-'14 body style. IMO these are some of the best looking bodies to grace the Mustang since the FB coupes of '65. I can see Ford's vision to progress the brand forward without leaving Mustang purists shaking our heads. I look forward to seeing one in person and I can't wait for all the magazine shootout comparisons that'll be done! Mustang vs. Camaro SS, Mustang vs. BMW M3. Who knows what this car can do with the IRS, maybe some wishful thinking like Mustang vs. 911? I'd love to see our American icon take on some of the top foreign cars. I got just a little bitter when I arrived at a Cars and Coffee event in my '07 GT and nobody could give a crap. Meanwhile you have scores of people drooling over Hondas and Subarus

I'll just say this, I like the new mustang. But I love the 2014. I was on the fence at first, but considering you can get a current model gt prem for 7-8k less than msrp its also going to be a lot more expensive. Someday I'll get a new one. Maybe in 6-7 years.

I don't know about the Honda-Subaru thing, but I never had one of those cars (japanese) that caused people to hang out of their car window to film!

It's good to be the BOSS.........................YEAH!

I am sold on the S550 but the '13-14 Boss or Shelbys are the best looking mustangs. Hope I will be owning one sooner rather than later

Same here. The 2015 is the best looking mustang ever. And from the sound of tests it will be the best performing.
