Default Saw a 2013 Mustang - But something Just Wasn't Right

I was driving through a parking lot and saw the tail lights of a 2013 Mustang as I drove by - but the more I think about it, the more I realize that something just wasn't quite right.

Seems more like somebody had put 2013 style tail lights on a 2010 rear end.

Is that possible?

What did the front end have? A '12 front end or a '13? You'd know for sure then.

You should have taken a pic. Did it have a 2013 bumper?

I feel a "05-09 vs 10-13" discussion brewin'...

I'd RATHER hear "I was driving through a parking lot and saw the engine of a 2013 Mustang as I drove by - but the more I think about it, the more I realize that something just wasn't quite right.

Seems more like somebody had put a 2013 5.0 engine in a 2007.

Is that possible?"


And btw, in this dreram that 2007 with the 5.0 would be mine...

Sadly I couldn't get pics. I was being chased - again - only this time by school administrators for leaving school 10 minutes early.

I think the bumper was what was wrong. It looked very - 2010 ish. And sadly I couldn't see the front. It still looked good from the rear. All white.

Talked to the dealer Here at Hohenfels Germany and the 2013's will not be on the lot until December. However, a soldier in my unit just ordered a V6 2013 so i will get the chance to See One in person.
