well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

Are you thinking of a mild refreshment versus a top to bottom redesign? Kind of like from 2009 to 2010?

I was expecting more of a change like from the 2004 new edge to the 2005 s197.
Ford's push was more towards form that follows function. IOW....aerodynamically..the car is absolutely more functional in the newest form.


If you think about it ... the thing the S197 and the S550 share in common is they are supposed to be influenced by the early Mustangs of the past.

In this regard... similarities are to be expected between them since they are both giving a hat tip to the same earlier generation Mustangs.

The S550 accomplishes this without remaining retro.

Just saying

I agree the about the design function. As a new car it is great. But for Ford to be so excited about how completely different and smaller the 2015 was going to be, I was hugely disappointed by how closely it resembled the outgoing 2014 model.

My opinion is, without the statements made it would of been a home run hit however its now just a ground rule double.

I finally drove a 2015 GT Premium auto today with thoughts of bringing it home. It was a yellow 50th trim. MSRP $45,000.

1st impression - the seats are awesome & visibility is a little better than my 2013 GT.

The brakes are awesome, the turning radius felt like I was driving a big truck, I wasn't overly impressed with the handling & I had some curvy back roads to really test it out, the 2015 is slower than my 2013 GT but the biggest thing I felt was how heavy the 2015 GT drives. My 2010 Challenger SRT8, 2012 Camaro SS/RS & my 2014 SS Sedan all feel & drive like much lighter cars than the 2015 Mustang GT. I left feeling a little bummed because I really thought I was going to bring that shiny yellow 2015 home.

I think they should go back to the GT badge on the fender instead of the 5.0 badge. The 5.0 badge seems out of place on this new car.

It would be cool to bring back the GT appearance package option instead of just labeling the V8 cars GT

Like they did originally.
