Yes the 2014 will be definitely an interesting chassis that I too am interested in finding out how it looks. My only hope: the GT does not lose the V8 and the base is not downgraded into an I-4.
A Ford CEO said he envisions the V8 only in the "specialty" cars, the limited production cars like the Cobra (if the GT500 name is not renewed with Shelby), and maybe the Boss.
Independent rear suspension is rumored to also be on the menu.
Whatever happens, I dont mind IRS so long as it is done right and is stout enough to take the power of the torques the engines will make.
I do hope that the GT V6 and base trim I-4 are only sold outside of the US, meaning that in the US, the GT is keeps the V8 and the Base trim gets no less than a V6.
That way, you have a "World" mustang with the wussified engines, but in America, you do not lose the muscle and the Mustangs sold in the US remain in parity with Camaros and possible even Corvettes to the power extent.
And for gawd sake, Direct inject the Coyote and the 3.7L! The blocks were designed for DI but the current productions only have ESFI. DI will allow better fuel metering, economy, and even higher CRs
i dont want to live in a world without v8 mustangs, im planning on buying a v8 to keep my v6 company but that will probably happen sometime after i graduate, if there are no new gt's then i may have to jump off a very high cliff
"I have stripes. Do you have stripes? No? Then get the hell out of the way."
I still think the 2013 is gorgeous - but last week, I saw a 2012 GT CS parked next to a GT500, side by side. I got to compare the looks, and I fell for the CS.
unfortunately, you can't get brembos with the CS. I am picking up a brembo equipped 2012 GT and adding on the CS pieces later.
I think the paint matched trims look more refined and make the car look more expensive, but I really enjoy having a 2ndary trim color, too, and will incorporate that black trim color into other areas of the car.
funny, I was really sold on waiting for the 2013, but seeing it side by side with the gt500 changed my mind.
Front end looks like the catfish looking front end of the Italian designers concept mustang from s few yrs ago. Love the heat extractor hood and rear tail lights though. But wouldn't trade my 12 for it. Love tye aggressive front end of the 11-12 models.
2013 sterling grey metallic v6. 18% tint on windows and 50% tint on the windshield.
2006 torch red 4.0l v6 (7/07)
2007 torch red gt (10/08)
2012 race red brembo gt (10/12)
2008 dk candy gt (8/15/11) sad sad day
I dig the back end of the car finally. I feel like they screwed it up when they went away from the back end like the 2007 GT. It made it look like a celica to me. The front does look pretty cool too, but nothing beats the Shelby look in the front ends. I really hope Ford does not cave to the tree hugging hippies and kill the v6/v8 setups. Government Motors can keep the small car offerings.
Anyone curious if the 2013 gt500 axlebacks are still compatible with the 5.0 exhaust layout? Quad tips look pretty good, just have to buy those and the rear valence. It doesnt look like the rear panels have changed so those parts would be compatible with the 11-12 models too.
The more I see the 2013 Body Style, the more it grows on me. I'm still not sure how much I like the updated body style, but I have found that its incredibly difficult for me to locate a 2012 Mustang GT Premium Coupe in Black, Brembo Brake Package, and 3.73 with a NJ/California Emission System. If I cannot find a Mustang with the options I want, looks like I will just have to find a 2013 Model with those options...
My rockers are torn to **** do to the big and sticky summer-only Pirelli's kicking up rocks. I'd be crying right now if they were painted. Had to get GT500 mud flaps in the back, and maybe get them for the front, since my paint has also been sand blasted. That better be durable paint I had bad chips after 10,000 miles.
I like the look of the finished rockers and the rear end on the 2013.
I have 3M clear vinyl on the painted rockers of my 07 and on the front and rear to avoid the road/track marbles that get kicked up.
It might be more than what mud flaps cost, but just think its a nice way to preserve the paint from scuffs and such.
I think the look is pretty nice. I have been out of the Mustang market for a few months, but I am getting a 13 GT when they hit the lots . I tell you what, it sucks when your Mustangless and its nice outside
