How come nobody complains that the M3 looks too much like other BMWs?
all bmws look the same lol a m3 is basically a sport version of the 330

They have more than half a year of 2014 Mustang sales to keep up, I'm sure they have very smart guys working on what info they release. The words 'global release' alone ignited the internet like napalm.

WHY does ford have to make the Mustangs styling like the rest of its fleet??? Did they take lessons from Dodge? The Mustang has always had its own identity. Now it shares its looks with the Taurus and Fusion. That kind of ticks me off they did this.

I agree with fake's post above. So the next Mustang will share the same grill with such "hot" models as Fiesta, C-Max & Taurus. No wonder they have been keeping it under wraps. What's the over/under on how many trapezoids they can jam on the car?

My point is that the whole signature look across models has been done for years. Pontiac, Audi, Mercedes, etc. Most of the GM brands had their own looks. That's how they could sell the exact same car as different models.

When I first saw the 2010 redesign, I thought it was awesome. There was no "getting used to it". Putting the GT500ish fascia and the smoked tail lights on the '13/'14 only made it better. To me, 2010-2014 are the best looking mustangs since the late 60's.

From all the rumors it sounds like the new generation is going to be great in terms of performance, it's just a shame it looks like a Fusion coupe instead of a mustang. Maybe it will look better when the entire car is unveiled, but the front end does not impress.

I think the design is pretty good. More evolutionary than I thought. I was actually hoping for something a little more modern and more revolutionary. We still haven't seen the rest of the car, and those who have seen it have said the rear of the car is the highlight of the design, so we still have that to look forward too.

I don't understand why comparing it to the Fusion is a bad thing. The Fusion is a great looking car, and has been giving the Japanese 4-doors some stiff competition precisely because of its great looking sheet metal.

Its gonna be a real sad day when you have to ask yourself was that a Mustang or a Fusion,Fesita or a Honda Accord that just went by, I for one am no fan of the NEW Ford look a likes but then they might have that NEW color hot pink with flowers on the hood so they will be easy to spot,I think Ford is making a HUGE mistake but to each there own.
