Default 2015 Mustang What do you think ?

After the unveiling this morning I think I'll keep my 2013. Change the Rear Lights in the 2015 and you have a Camaro Rear End, and the old Mustang Side Quarter Windows are virtually gone. The Front End is similar to the 2013 & 2014 except the Lights. Inside is too busy. only positive is more Horse Power ( but how much ) to the 5.0. It is just too plain jane to me nothing really stands out. Just my $.02

yep, reminds me of the 2010 refresh of the 2009 instead of a redesign like the 04 to the 05.

I like the way the rear is raked in and the center backup. The front, I'm not so sure about...it's not a real standout. The interior, well, there a lot going on there, sorta like the front.

It's wider and lower than the current version so the stance may make the car. I'm going to hold final judgment until I can do a walk around.

Reminds me of a James Bond 007 car...... Not necessarily a good thing for an iconic American brand.

My last thought - I hope that by the time these hit the show rooms next fall, it' won't already look dated.

I am not a fan in the slightest. I was indifferent to the raked rear in the 10-14 models but they made it more severe with the '15. That butt looks hideous. I saw the magazine leaked pics 2 days ago and showed them to my GF later that day. Both of us, without any input from the other, said it has the roofline of an Audi. That is not a good thing.

I'm looking out my window at my car in the parking lot here at work. No way this '15 looks meaner than what I have now.

Working backwards, Ford. Working backwards...

There are some things I like, and some I don't. I'm going to wait till I can see it in person to give final judgement.

I think once we see it in person, we'll be lusting after it like everyone else.

I think they hit a home run. I was worried they would go too far with the re-style, but I think they nailed. it.. Love the rear treatment.. now it looks as good going as coming. Agressive front end without being a fusion clone. Waiting for the details on the options etc.

Lighter weight is nice also Independent rear suspension will be a big plus also... Still like the 2005 body style better for looks however. I agree with the post above I will wait till I see one in person to pass final judgement and how it drives

In person, all I thought of the rear end was 360 Modena. The diffuser and pony in blacked out panel.

The lights look so much better than the renderings (and pictures).

The roof line is very G35 Coupe like and the lower rear quarter reminds me of the 10-14 Mustang's lower rear quarter.

The front, yes, is a more aggressive take on the Fusion front end, but it does look like a sports/GT car. It looks lighter than the S197 for some reason (not sure if that's just from all of the rumors that it'd be lighter or not though).

I wish I got more time and could've gotten closer, but I had to get to the office before I was late. Damn work, getting in the way
