If it looked anything like the concept, I will not buy. I'll gladly buy a used 2012 though! It's called a concept car for a reason: it's a concept. And it's released by some hack at a magazine publication. Something so radically different from the 2013 will alienate the loyal base. The people who grew up with mustangs won't recognize it as really anything... just another quick coupe. Hell look at the Mustang II, those were great production years. What a sharp looking car...
I can't wait for the concept car from FORD to be released so I have a good idea on what it will look like and I'll be able to make a good judgement call on whether it'll be worth the money or not.
Anyone know just how close to production years manufacturers typically reveal their concepts?

Not in love w/it, but an improvement over the original Evos concept, IIRC. Would like the front end more if they got rid of the slim headlights & went w/ones the same height as the grill. They make it look too much like a Jag or Aston. No complaints about the rear, though not enamored w/it, either. Not opposed to a bit of the new Ford styling creeping in (I really like it on the fiesta & Focus), but the final version needs to look more Mustangish than this. And yes, the blue oval badge needs to go.
Yeah if its even close to that, I would defintily not be buying it. The 2005-2013 are so much better its not even right. I am biased for 05-09 but still love the current gens over the early 90's all the way back till the early 70's. I know things ebb and flow in designs and there is gonna be duds, ever so often, but if I wanted a European car particularly a Aston I would try my best to get one. I dont want the American Icon looking like that.
Forget a real horse ride a Steel Horse

Car design is so inflexible at times. I can't stand the fact that cars will be going back to looking like soap dishes or products like electric razors. The high big *** tapered back end of an ugly Buick doesn't belong on a Mustang. The whole point of the Mustang is to take modern cues only, and then still retain the Mustang essence.
That car looks like the ugly cars they put on display at Emagine movie theatres in the lobby, where Mr and Mrs. "everyone" are supposed to like it. Boooooo! Eriki
