Same here. I would definitely keep my 14 V6. After waiting anxiously for such a long time, I am extremely disappointed by the Fusion coupe style exterior, and the lack of a power train improvement.

Awesome its a ford fusion mixed with a Honda accord with mustang badges. I am glad i have my 2011. The 2015 is no mustang I will ever buy. Hope they change design back to a beefy looking muscle car in the next 5-10 years

Where are the backup lights that have been illustrated below the rear bumper fascia in other renderings and the antenna (that is usually located on the rear quarter panel) in missing. There is no Mustang emblem on the area below the truck. It's just another photoshop rendering.

Sorry I did not realize that there is already another thread "Car and Driver S550 render" about this topic.

Moderators, please combine these two threads.

Did you not notice the fin antenna? There isn't supposed to be a Mustang emblem there to my knowledge

Your 2011 is very similar to the 2015... Have you looked at your car? It has the same shark nose, almost the same narrow headlights, and similar sleek lines. Yours is just bigger.

I think I like it the more I see it. But I wish Ford would go ahead and release the real deal already. I'm really interested in the future new engine offerings they mentioned. If that is true we are headed for good times. Just hope I can afford to play.

I strongly disagree..... Mine looks like a muscle car the 2015 looks like a sleek fusion coupe.... Have you looked at my 2011?

The car and driver 360 does not match the spy pictures. Look at the side profile view and look at everything from the rear wheels back. It's way too long compared to what has been shown in the spy pictures. Anyways, I was originally going to wait until the 2015 engines were unveiled before I made a decision, but it looks like I may order a 14 GT before the order banks close...

If the 2016/17 has a 500 HP N/A GT for relatively the same price (~35K), I'm game. Otherwise, I'm not sold on this new look at all. Sigh. I really hope this is just a guess.

I think everyone is critical of change, me included. Right now I say I will stick with my 2012 til the end of time but as we creep into 2018 or so, most will be ecstatic to trade theirs in. The design is starting to grow on me even if it isn't the official car.

THe real issue is that they are hacking up the design to sell it in Europe, and if it is indeed similar in dimensions and only 200lbs lighter it will never sell over there in significant numbers and we'll be stuck with a Europeanized Mustang.

I see nothing but fail here, and not because of the looks. They would have been better off going back to the Fox platform for a smaller outside dimension.

Everything you said is correct and almost similiar to what I think, except the one thing though... to go back to fox body. In my oppinion Ford should have considered the 99-04 body! My biggest wish woukd have been Ford would just revival the old 99-04 design at best the 03-04 body!
Eventhough Im lucky to own a 2013 model and am aware of this and really happy about...there is still something about these 2003-04 cobras that gives me a thrill, over all cars on the market.
Considering me as a real due hard stangenthusiast, if Ford had did an 03-04 cobra revival the sales wold have went ballistic! Everyone would have wanted the mystic cobra!
Honestly no electric gadgets, the way they came equipped in 03...brand new in 2015 and I wouldnt thought twice about it if or how to get this baby home! :)
My dream....aaaaah...

While there are many nice styling cues, it is an unfinished design in just about every way....the interior- dash/console....the lack of visual quality materials leaves it looking just like a piece of plastic crap....similar to the camero...something that 90% of everyone including camero owners agree....
Clearly disappointing that Ford would let something so promising with so much potential go out the door like that...........
