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!
