So i've been hearing rumors and such floating around, but is there a definite name to the fresh new look of the former S197 mustang? I heard the S10 mustang, but it kinda sounds like a chevy to me lol
I wonder if the 2011's use new front calipers (besides the obvious brembo packages and such). I remember when I took my front ones off to paint them it has S197 stamped right into them. Wonder if the same was done to the '11 calipers :?: I have a name for the '10+ but I don't think anyone will like it :grinroll:.....
Well lets put it this way. The ass end reminds me of the new gen Camaro. The only thing Ford did for the new gen was get their engineers of their asses and take all the kinks out out of the base modular platform. Wow, all of a sudden we have a 302 that puts out some hp from the factory. You can do it yourself with a 4.6 and about $10K. Thanks for saving me some work Ford! Good job :bigthumbsup Ok I am done venting. :laugh:lets hear it anyway. I bet a few people will like it.
Thats good but too many letters to stamp onto a caliper. How about 10IG... for 2010+ is gay! :shigrin Now I know some ppl are going to think I am biased but let me tell you. I love most of the previous body styles of stangs. Ford had to F-up a good thing on the 05-09 bodystyle. They updated the bodystyle because it was time but they didn't have to follow the footsteps of GM...Jeeze...at least Mopar did good with the Chally SRT8 b4 they died (looks only!!!).Uglyazzrear-s197
People really liked the S197 when it came out because it kind of had that "outdated" feel to it...or retro as most people would put it. The new bodystyle has too many curves on it. I think the new Camaros are eyesores. The only other latemodel muscle car I like is the SRT8 Challenger. Everybody is welcome to their own opinion though. But you are right, Ford did upgrade the powertrain and they did a good job doing it. It was just a little late forthcoming.I don't see any resemblance between the new Mustang and the Camaro, so I don't get that comparison. Is it different than the S-197, yes. Having both, I get to compare. It makes the S-197 look outdated, but that was the whole point of the S-197. Once you drive one, the S-197 will feel REALLY outdated. But I like both. Oh, and it wasn't just a cosmetic upgrade. The new platform is much much better.
