I'm starting to worry that the crazy horsepower war is going to go the way of the 70's and pretty soon we'll all be driving castrated "muscle cars." Until then, though, V8s for the win!

To late. Some by-passed the Shelby and already badged Boss 302 on some already! It looks LAME too.

Yep, I had dude come up and ask my if that was just a sticker package, he had no idea they actually made the car again.

To keep on par with Camaro, I can definitely see the Coyote getting 425 BHP crank. But I hope the torque is pushed decently above 400ft-lbf crank too. Peak HP numbers are nothing, especially at low and mid range RPM bandwidths without torque to back that HP number up.

As for the GT500 getting above 600 BHP crank, that would either be in reply to or in preparation for Chevy's ZL1. The ZL1 is supposed to get well above 600 BHP crank with its 6.2L and TVS supercharger. It only makes sense the GT500 at least keep up if not stomp the ever living S*** out of the new Camaro top trim.

Looking at these spy shots and seeing as how the entire body (below the window line) is wrapped in camo, I'm thinking it may be more than just a new front end and tail lights. Although it's hard to really see anything from the below spy shots.

It is still bend forward. BOO! I was hoping the triangular rear lights would remain but the would not angle forward the lights.

Do those mufflers look way bigger or is it just me? Either way, I can't wait to see the finished product.

I hope they make the taillights still be LED. It def gives a more higher end look than the typical halogen bulbs do.

I'm sure hp will not reach anywhere near that level. Those mandated MPG requirements will strangle any chance of that happening. Mileage and hp just dont go together very well.

Those spy shots of the next stang doesnt say much at all. Looks just like any S197 with black vinyl all over. Roof line will apparently stay the same.
