If they do make a turboed 4 I'm getting boss 140 striped down the side (If they use a 2.3 that is).

I guess people don't understand that Ford wants a signature feature for their cars. It might have some Fusion likeness but that is where it ends.

Just like a Porsche looks like a Porsche and a Ferrari looks like a Ferrari.

I think people understand it plenty, they just don't like it. You know, opinions A lot of people like the fact that when people see them coming up behind them, they don't think "that's a Ford", they think "that's a Mustang". Until it's close, aside from the running horse emblem, there's not much to what we've seen other than "that's a Ford". Maybe the finished product will look a lot more distinct, but currently it does not. The fusion superimposed over the mustang makes this pretty clear.

There is a huge portion of the American population who neither know nor care what a Mustang is. Those who do would have no trouble identifying a Mustang behind them no matter the year.

Not to sure about the whole thing. The style doesn't look too bad but it seems like Ford is lowering itself to the likes of Japanese compact sports cars. It's sickening actually. I'm a huge American muscle car fan. Especially Ford. This will definitely give those Chevy and Dodge, Mustang haters fuel to talk smack. Ford took the lead in bringing back the classic style and performance of the first generation of muscle cars with today's technology and Chevy and Dodge followed suit. Ford needs to stay the course and continue the great things its doing.

Taking the muscle out of the muscle car is not it. Turbo?!? Four cylinder?!? Can see all the crap talking on that one. Then the all around shrinking of the car itself. Bottom line is, stop trying to make this muscle car into a Japanese compact sports car. People who buy muscle cars should come to an understanding that its going to cost some gas. Muscle cars were not made for fuel economy. Want to save on gas, don't get a muscle car and go ahead and buy that Accord two door coupe.

First, how can you form an impression of the car's looks when you've seen less than a quarter of the car without the camo on? And even the uncovered part has black tape and no factory paint. Yet despite this, you make a blanket statements about the car's appearance.

Second, who cares what some Camaro owner or Challenger owners says or thinks? People buy what they like. That won't change. Some people will like those. Some people will like Mustangs. BTW have you seen the new Camaro with its cheezy air vent on the hood and the Honda Prelude-esque tail lights? I guess some people like it; to each their own. But if I like something and someone else doesn't, I brush it off because everybody has different tastes.

The four cylinder motor is rumored to have somewhere around 350 HP, which is 50 more than an 05-10 GT in a car that will probably be lighter. Sounds like plenty of muscle to me. Pretty sure it will blow away an Accord coupe, be very fun to drive, and be reasonable on gas and on purchase price.

You seem awfully concerned with what others think. To me that's a crappy way to go through life. If you enjoy something, you shouldn't be concerned with someone stranger's opinion, especially some Camaro guys posting on the internet.

And you're one of the few people I've seen complaining about the car getting smaller and lighter. If you want performance, you want lighter weight. I love my car, but it's a boat. I could definitely do with some sharper handling and a lighter curb weight.

This is the one thing im looking forward to. Drop 200 pounds and make the car just a bit smaller and it will be a completely different vehicle. I will drive circles around the current car. I guess I just like the Fox/SN95/New Edge sized cars.

Dont get me wrong. I love the current design. I was planning on picking one up but I gotta see what the '15 looks like first.

Forgot to talk about this in my previous post. Why should we accept crappy fuel economy with today's technology? With the technology car companies have at their disposal today, there is no need to live with bad fuel economy, even from sports cars and muscle cars. The new Vette gets something like 29-30 MPG on the highway.

And like it or not, with gas north of 4 bucks a gallon in parts of the country and the economy still slow, it's a pretty tough sell marketing a car that gets 16 or 17 MPG, even to the most hardcore muscle car enthusiasts.

On top of all that, you have the new CAFE standards from the government. Car companies are REQUIRED to make these cars more efficient each and every year. So unless you want to see Ford and other stop making muscle cars, you're going to have to accept that they will need to cut weight and streamline things to meet those new efficiency standards.

The Car is shrinking because the Government made the Cafe MPG curve draconian by 2016

Here's some more news on the 2015:
Ford's Risky 2015 Mustang Could Alienate Loyal Fans (F)

Also, to those of you who still want a honking big retro muscle Mustang, you should probably consider a fat hemi Challenger. Mustang needs to change to survive. People buy Mustangs for the road, not the dragstrip. A smaller, lighter Mustang will have a broader appeal. Ford is just getting smarter about the next-gen with more aluminum, lighter materials, smaller displacements and dimensions.

Consider this, the '14 Porsche Cayman only has a 325 HP 6 cylinder engine. Zero to sixty is in the 4.5 range, 1/4 mile is in mid 12's and top speed is 176 MPH. Weight -2,910 lbs.

Now consider a 2015 Mustang weighing around 3100 - 3200 lbs with a 375 HP anything engine. Now you're talking about a world car that's fast in the twisties and a straight line. Don't worry, be happy.
