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

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...

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
You know it's not as bad as I thought it was going to be. She still looks like a Mustang, and if they bring back a Mach1 with the style I may trade in my 2013 5.0. It's not the ugliest Mustang they have ever made so its a win.
*) People that loved the Sn95 styling will likely love this car as it shares a lot of cues with that generation coupled with some slight styling cues of the S197.
*) People that love the S197 retro style will likely not like this car as it shares cues of the S197 but reverts back to a more edgy streamline design.
*) People who say it doesn't look like a complete make over must not be looking at what I'm looking at as this car, inside and out, looks completely different. The car must carry Mustang heritage, meaning it must keep some tradition styling cues (which the 05-14s kept very close to the original design), however this car breaks away nicely from the retro design without going so euro (reference fox platform) that it doesn't loose it's Mustang heritage.
Now my own thoughts, I like the design and I think it will definitely grow on people as more options come out. I think the inside is a little too busy with all the buttons but it is cool to see them go back to the dual cockpit design of the SN95s.
Not bad but not that great, as said its more of a refresh that shares recent design cues. Don't think its worth trading in for, yet. The new power would be the only major point for me. Don't really like the rear quarters or the front/hood with all the lines. I had hoped it would be smaller to. Im sure it will grow on people though.
I personally like the new look, the rear end has a more european look to it almost Porsche looking. I love the fact that the car is more level with out the raked stance that most people go and get new suspension to get rid of anyway.

I would say ask yourself what your opinion would be if this had aston martin badging on it? Its hard to do anything that hasnt been done before, so its easy to say that this looks like this or has cues from something else. As the Vanquish is my dream super car right behind a Ford GT...I would have to say it's grown on me.
If you go to the third set of pics, you can change colors and wheelstyles. http://www.ford.com/cars/mustang/201...mustang-reveal I do hope they offer the fog lamps in the grill like we have now which I think would make this ominous as heck! The pic of the red one under "The Design" heading (4th down) shows some better perspective on the size of the car and Im glad it doesnt look smaller.
I won't trade the Shelby, but now, Im thinking that I hope the wife enjoys her vert for a while cuz that's probably getting sold/traded in.

Been waiting for this day so I could make a decision on a 2014 or 2015, and I think I'll be getting a 2014 in the next month or two. I like the '15 okay, but I don't love it anymore than I already love the '14. I'll definitely look at the '15 in person though. From certain angles, the rear end slant doesn't do it for me.

I think it is "ok"...no real WOW factor there. It now joins the ranks of other cars that have the same look...no longer unique but more generic...it will now be a Mustang that brings to mind another car...I am VERY HAPPY I have the fleet of cars I have...they will always be Mustangs and only bring to mind Mustangs...not Accords or Fusions...Camaro etc.
My wife has said she is wondering when she will be in the garage and the GT 500 will be in the bedroom...I tell her thats just crazy...there is no way to get the car up the stairs!
There is NO problem that can't be solved by the simple application of more Horsepower!!
