I think I would know, since I'm driving a 2014.

So they switch them back and forth, my 2014 and my 2013 had the tach on the right, speedo on the left. I heard it is a more track orientated setup because you can see the tach easier while racing.
I have heard of them switching sides between special models, like the mach 1, and the standard.

My preference is the way it is now, since i normally cant see my speedo, due to the hand on the steering wheel. I rather have a straight line of sight to the RPM gauge than the speedo.

That back end just looks terrible. The current gen has such cool taillights and they would have worked perfectly for this model. It's such a tragedy.

I also like the horizontal DRL lights as apposed to the three slanted bars.

They had three 2015 GT's on display at the Blacktop Nationals last weekend -- dark blue metallic, red metallic (on a rack sideways so you could see the suspension!) and bright yellow. I thought that the metallic colors looked great, but wasn't enamored with the yellow. I have an '06 GT and I wasn't sure about the proportions of the new model, but it is very nice. Looking at the underneath of the red car, you could see that the floor pan is much tighter to the road, which makes the roofline lower without giving up interior space. The car looks much better in person than in pictures.

I agree. I got to inspect one, even sit in it for awhile and it's a really nice car.

It sits lower than the current, or at least appears to. But that could just be the rear treatment. It's a real class act.

Being an older guy though, I like my retro.

I want to see what the Blue Metallic and Red Metallic looks like.
The Metallic Guard looks nice, but I want to see what it looks like in the sunlight and in person.

Pictures are okay, but taken indoors, it's really hard to see the metallic's brilliance
