1965 + 50years = 2015, so Ford didn't mess up the math. Of course, technically the 64 1/2 Mustangs were the ones built prior to August 1964 so Ford is a little late on the building, but on time for the model year.

Also, going back and forth between 2014 Mustang front photos and 2015 Mustang front photos and the grill isn't even a whole lot different, but the overall look is. To each is one, but far from ruined.
or why was the 40th an 04 or a the 09 45th?

i love how the 2015 looks from the back from the side and directly from the front but any other angle and that front just doesnt do it for me, the hood, the lights, the bumper, even the bottom of the front looks pretty weird. Things like how the hood extends just a little farther over the lights then the side body does kind of bother me, how big the bumper space is, how the trunks arent aligned properly (not sure if it will make its way into production models), how the transmissions are basically the same. Its going to drive great, have a better interior, be fast, but i would never pay money to upgrade to something im not 100% in love with. I think the mustang to get is the 2021, look at the 05 and the 11...if they improve on the 15 as much as they improved on the 05 i would definitely buy that car

The GT350 is supposed to have right at 500hp you mean.

Best description I've seen yet of the 15 Stang ...

Ouch, but have to agree.

Then why did Ford tag the '09's as the 45th anniversary edition?

Possibly to try and boost slowing sales? Marketing always does funny things to make people think they are getting something special, improved or otherwise better in some way.

good point. I didn't buy new on that model, it was just there. Sounds sketchy to do stuff like that. Bordering on false advertising if you ask me.

Look around you. It happens every day. That's how companies convince people to buy things they don't really need.

FORD took the character out of the car. It just looks like another "homogenized" new car.....like many others.

Just wait until some smartass comes up with a honeycomb grille with a running horse emblem for the Fusion so he can say he has a Mustang sedan.
