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.

I havn't seen a 2013 yet in my college town yet, but there's only a few 5.0's lurking... like 3. Cant wait to spot a 13

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.
