13 they finally made the rear better, but screwed the front... Remember when you could tell a V6/Mach/GT/Cobra/bullitt by the front bumper alone? So much for differation between models (waits for 'BUT THE GRILL IS DIFFERENT!)

Im part of the crowd ford is targeting- and they should remember that we cant afford to go out and get a 35k+ weekend/inpractical car to drive to work and such. prices need to drop.

Different tastes. I like the look of the '05-'09 best, but really wanted a new one with all the features.

lol so all the people that put all that effort into their mustangs making it have the shelby front end on it was perfectly "awesome", but when ford makes it standard on the 2013 which still looks just as amazing it's "screwed"?

I never liked the shelby to begin with- too much R34 skyline, not enough Mustang. But thats all opinion- more power to the people that spent all that coin for a shelby front. Ive got parts from every different model of factory ford 99-04's on mine because its what I wanted.

And again, THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME. What happened to unique looking models? different grills, spoilers, +/- foglights, completely different bumpers.

35k is dirt cheap, look at the competition from foreign car manufacturers, BMW, audi, Mercedes, etc you need to pay double for the same package. If you can't afford a 35k car with a real job its you that has to change not ford.

Also, weekend car? I'd say a majority of the people on this Site DD their mustang.

I was going to replay to that also but I think you got it right If he can not Afford 35K for a new Sport coupe with the performance of a Mustang GT then he IS NOT FORDS Target market. Sorry Sports cars are not cheap and if Ford made it Cheap it would be a **** CAR. IF you can't afford it then I guess you will have to wait and buy a USED car you can afford compared to a BMWM3 or M5 a Mustang even a Shelby is the Cheapest car you can buy with the kind of HP numbers. I suppose just because it is a FORD and not a BMW it should be cheap? Tell you what I will gladly sell you my 09 and the same goes for those that want to keep the Live Axel you can buy If that is what you want that car is already out it is called a used Mustang if Ford is going to build a performance car it has to match the performance of the competition and that is NOT just Chevy Cameros or Dodge Chargers it is M3s Audi RS and Merc. AMGs FORD is selling cars world wide not just to you good ol boys in the US

Although all the 13's look the same now you have no choice but too look the same now. At least before you could buy a cheaper V6 and put a GT500 front end on it and its your choice to pay the extra or not.

I think what Ford is doing here is simplifying the production for 13/14's in preparation for the remade 15. With less variety of parts to make, which makes it cheaper for them too but why the cost savings isnt reflected in the cars prices :shrug:, they can transition easier to the new production lineup for 2015.

Hopefully it will only be this way for the 13/14 and 15 will bring back the individuality of the models.

Hey, i remember another car that was styled ad priced for a higher class market, competed with the AMG and M3's, and did it well, Guess what? It was critisized for being something it wasnt, and sold like ****. So lives the last GTO. The same thing could happen to the mustang. Whats the average american household income? between 45-50k at the moment. Suddently, that 35k sport coupe is pretty damn expensive. its not a damn sports car, you buffoon- ITS A PONY CAR. What was the original idea? oh yeah, a cheap, sporty car. Where did it go? it went the way of lazy americans, with its 15 CD changer and 8 cupholders, and trying to compete with the Euro cars whilst forgetting its history. FORD tried to replace it with what should have been the modern replacement back in the 90s. It didnt work. Why should they do it now? Im not saying stick with a live axle- which you so idiotically took as something I said- but they need to remember where its roots are half the selling point, and not everyone wants 15 *** warmers per square inch, 15 disc changer, GPS, satellite radio, 92 way seats, etc. Some just want the classic AMERICAN sports car. So do you european people.

I sincerely hope the boys across the pond are enjoying the 40 year old, big brash 'american good ol boy' cars that I sent over last year- with its inefficient V8, live axle, and poor gas mileage, along with the distinctly AMERICAN styling and feel. I suppose he should have bought the new M3? Because what European in their right mind would ever pay for an american minded vehicle.


Or since this is the internet and we are all tough guys, I will gladly take the 30min drive to MA and put my foot up your ***

I was just going to say, with all of the amazing work Ford did to make the SRA in the Mustang capable of handling incredibly well, whose to say they can't make an IRS that will handle launches incredibly well? Everyone else knocked the Mustand for having an SRA, saying that it couldn't handle and then it blew the doors off cars with IRSs. Mustang fans have to remember that before they sit here assuming that an IRS will be as ****ty for drag racing as it was in the past. I'm sure Ford is well aware of this and I would imagine that they are keeping in mind the fact that they need an IRS that can launch as good and as hard as the old SRA.

OK OK I get it Hay I did snot buy my 2009 brand new I am a average guy also. But I don't want a 2015 mustang that will get its doors blown off by some punk in a Nissan ether.

And I Love Classic Mustangs as much as the next guy but they are classic cars you do not expect them to match a new cars in comfort and performance and when you do build a classic that does it costs ALOT more then 35K just price a turnkey classic from YearOne.

I fully understand that the average salary in the US when you consider the increase in cost of everything has not kept up over the past 20-30 years that is the sad truth of putting Wall Street profits and ever greater CEO and Executive compensation over the salaries and Pension funds of the average worker. But that is another debate for another forum. As for what the new 2015 Mustang should be or Not be.

I wold rather be forced to wait and buy a Used 2015 vs it being compromised by bean counters to keep the price down. We all know Ford is not making cars to just make cars and they are bound to the same economics of wall Street that the rest of the world it so they are certainly not going to eat the cost budding a car with outstanding performance numbers it will be reflected in the price. that is the hard truth. We all want to be driving a Bad A** ride but unless you want to have some punk in a Lexus coupe telling you your car is all looks and no go you have to expect to pay a bit more then that average car. My wife just bout a New Focus and it was over 24K (more then I paid for my 2009 Mustang) and it is a Econo car.

Remember the Mustang Is no longer the car it was in 1968 it has become a performance car not as Shelby put it a "Secretary's car" with a V8 dropped under the hood.
The Secretary's car of today is the Focus and if you want the 2013 equivalent of the early Mustang concept wise it would be a FocusST (your not going to fit a V8 it that car)
Remember there was no Subcompacts in 1968 (not in the US anyway) The Mustang was a Considered a Small car back then. SO THE FORMULA for the original Pony cars was take the smallest car you make that you can put a V-8 in. But today the small cars are FWD and are too small put in a V8 but the concept is the same take a inexpensive Econo car and put a performance engine in it making a cheap performance car. So there you go by a FocusST it is the basic concept of the original pony cars.
It is NOT the 1968 version it is what you get when you take the Concept and apply to the average car today. SO where does that leave the Mustang? it's roots lie in a 1968 6cyl. Secretary's car it was sporty but not a sports car but Shelby took it Sports car racing and the Mustang Legend was born. But today's Mustang is not a Average Car with a more powerful engine it is a complete different model of car targeting at a Specific performance market with NOTHING of it from ANY of Fords Econo cars it no longer fits the Model of what the Original Mustang was it is now a performance car. Yes ford Still makes a V6 version and it sells a bunch of those but that V6 is still a long way from it's original roots the even the V6 versions are targeted for performance (it has 300HP in the V6 that is more HP then the V8 in the 1980s 5.0 V8) SO Why should Ford build a Mustang that is a compromise of price vs performance when it already makes plenty of cars that fit that bill. The Mustang is a Breed and Brand unto itself and that Brand stands for American Muscle. Only I for one do not want My american Muscle bested by some Euro or Japanese coupe just because it might keep the price down.

if 35k is too much, then buy a base v6 for 22k


even if the average income is around 40k, you can save up for a down payment and have a reasonable monthly cost.

So I'm confused from reading various articles. Is the 2014 mustang supposed to be the current styling updated or a new style? Because what I've been reading is the new style mustang will be for the 50th anniversary coming out in April 2014 AS a 2015 mustang not a 2014 mustang. So what style will be coming out in.. say april 2013 as the 2014 mustang? Will that be retro styled like current or will be different?

If it's going to be different in april 2013 as a 2014, then (unrealistically) they would be designing yet another completely new style for 50th anniversary in april 2014 called the 2015 mustang.

So what's the deal? Obviously noone knows for sure, but completely changing the style IN 2014 called the 2015 still leaves the void of what style an actual 2014 mustang (released April 2013) will look like.

Edit: Here's what I think. The mustang we saw that looked like a 2013 mustang with IRS will be the 2014 mustang as the first mustang with the new IRS and possibly other changes while retaining the current or close to current body styling. Then the 2015 coming out in April 2014 will be the NEW body style with a fully tested IRS (tested on the 2014 with current body style). Thoughts?

edit2: My brilliant deduction is really difficult to read with that *** above my post

Wow I am not a fan of the rear and the overall look. It's too... curvy.
