A lot of auto makers are doing the "lets make all the cars look nearly identical" thing, so I would ot be surprised if the 2015 Mustang looked a lot like the Fusion and Taurus.

CS GT-40 Wheels, Hotchkis sway bars, upper and lower control arms, springs (1.1/1.6 drop) and adj panhard bar KONI yellow struts and shocks J&M caster/camber plates,

Its all part of the "One-Ford" concept. Fusion, Fiesta, the new Focus, the Escape and now the Mustang will all have similar front ends.

Maybe someone forgot to tell the design department they don't own Aston Martin anymore.

In all likelihood these designs were created many years ago and they've only been refining them since then.

It's the american look of the Mustang that made it so popular in europe also, no one wants to buy a Mustang that will look like another european car...

But they do have one of the main designers from Aston Martin
Actually, there probably won't be a 2015 GT500. It looks like it will be discontinued because the 5.8 L engine apparently won't fit in the new reduced size body. Shelby is discontinuing the GT350 this fall, and it looks like a new Ford GT350 will replace the GT500 in the standard Mustang line-up.

IMHO, as much I want the Mustang to live on forever, if your going to "euro" a 50 year old American icon... just kill it. it will die anyway if you euro design it. at least let the Mustang go out with its head held high... not disgraced by some eurotrash design.

"One Ford" design. who came up with that idea? the same design engineer who has been running Cadillac's front end design into the ground for the last decade?

no one wants a car that looks like every other car that Ford makes. they need to rethink that concept.

I agree. Unfortunately most car manufacturers are moving forward with a similar concept. Apparently the aim is to make a car brand instantly recognizable to the general consumer. It is just too bad that they are taking iconic names like the Mustang and also subjecting it to the same treatment.

I'm sure glad I purchased a 2012 GT. so far I'm not real keen on any of the recent 2015 shots I've seen.
