For me PERSONALLY, I'm really glad I got my 2014! I do not, under any circumstances, want a SN95 94-98 style/sized Mustang. I purchased my 14 GT/CS when the "gettin was good." I knew the 15's were going to be down sized, but man, 15" from the front and almost 7" narrower, WOW! The length of the 2011 Mustang is 188.1 inches and width 73.9 inches------the 1994 Mustang length is 181.5 inches and width 71.8 inches. Now if the current estimations of 15" length/7" width reduction is correct, that will put the dimensions of the 2015 Mustang at a length of 173.1 inches and a width of 66.9 inches. The 1974 Mustang has a length of 175 inches and a width of 70.2 inches.

Even if the the 15"/7" reduction isn't totally correct, the new Mustang is going to be much, much, smaller. I hated my time in my 1995 Mustang. The interior was way to small for me at 6' tall. My fellow co-worker who car pooled with me had long legs which were practically in his chest riding in that car. Additionally, I only had like a quarter inch from the top of my head to the roof. My 2007 Mustang is a breath of fresh air. I actually have room to move around in that car and my co-worker isn't up against me. My 2014 GT/CS has even more interior room and I love it. For me, 2015 is to small, more like an SN95.....but even smaller.

By the way, the dimensions of the 1971 "boat" Mustang is: length 189.5 inches and width 74.1 inches.

Well, the length of the 64.5 was 181.6" so we won't be too far off with the new one.

I know the talk of the turboed 4 cylinder isn't really a huge topic, but with the weight reduction it would essentially be a RWD WRX, minus the suspension. With that being said, would Ford try and compete with Subaru, price wise as well as overall performance? I've been split between getting an STi and a 5.0 if Ford could pull it off I could have the best of both worlds.

Apples man, apples. Those cars aren't even in the same class.

. . .. and for some of us, that's the point exactly. The current car is elephantine, the same size as the 71-73, which everyone agrees was too big. 4000 pounds? That's just too much for a performance car.

I have heard and hope for a 12-15" length reduction. I seriously doubt the 7" width reduction, making it narrower than a Pinto. That's not real, and it doesn't jibe with the spy photography of the camo'd car that came out recently. That car was well-proportioned, not high and skinny.

So, there are at least some of us looking forward to the new car. And if none of the rest of you want one, then we should be able to get a good deal with a healthy rebate in the first year. That'd be OK, too.

And remember, no one liked the SN95 when it came out. But it ended up being OK.

Agreed. I welcome the size reduction. Moreso, I welcome the weight reduction with open arms.

Different strokes for different folks!! I for one liked the 71-73 Mustangs which were the best built and most refined of the muscle stangs. When Ford downsized to the Pinto-stang in 74 everyone cheered along with Motor Trend which awarded it the Car of the Year award. Ford sold 385,693 of them in 74, but in 75 sales dropped almost 50% to 188,575. The once cheering buyers became dismayed at the small size and weak engines. As used car prices fell on the Pinto-Stang, the values of the 71-73 Boat-Stangs (65-70 models also) held firm and in some cases rose because owners held on to them resulting in a reduction of supply on the used car market. Only time will tell if history repeats itself.

Mustang Chronicle, By Jerry Hesley and the auto editors of Consumer Guide
"And suprisingly, the '71s rode and handled better than previous Mustangs, something biased chroniclers typically ignore. Understeer was reduced, roadholding was improved, and new variable-ratio power steering provided better road feel than Mustang's fixed-ratio setup. (pg. 102)

Will history repeat itself??
"In design terms, the 1971-73 models were the last in the mold of the smash-hit original. Sporty styling, performance that was at least interesting, and a long option list had all endured, but everyone knew that Mustang had veered way off the ponycar path and needed to get back on track---pronto.
It was about to do just that with a new-generation car for the brave, battered world of the Seventies. Unfortunately, the regrettably underachieving Mustang II would prove as controversial in its own way as the "Clydesdale" cars it replaced. (pg. 103)

I happened to come across a forum of people complaining that the Ferrari F12 looks too much like an Aston Martin. It reminded me of people here complaining about the Mustang rendering looking too "Euro."
