Looks like a Honda Accord coupe more than anything imo.

I'm seeing some subtle S15 cues in there too. Just doesn't look like a Mustang to me. Looks like some Euro/Jap sport coupe trying to make the entire world like it. And that's just not a Mustang.

You know it still irritates me that americanmuscle.com is a mustang only site. They must have jumped on that fast or payed a ton for the name.

I think it looks fantastic. "Looks like a Mustang" is a fallacy, as there is generally a COMPLETELY different look each generation. The '94-'04 cars were really only one generation with body panel and engine changes, same with the '05-'14 cars. The Mustang II looked nothing like the '65-'73, the Foxbody looked nothing like the Mustang II, and the SN95 looked nothing like the Fox.

Am I the only one that kind of likes the new mustang? Only disappoinntment is they didnt announce the SVO name for the turbo 4 version. Sits lower, wider track, IRS, mcpherson front susp, turbo4 thatll put out 300 easy and get 30mpg plus couple hundred pounds lighter then 5.0, bet near 50/50 weight and the car as a whole is lighter... Sounds awesome to me!

Ill admit the look didnt blow me away and shares modern design with a lot if cars, but Ill reserve full judgement there till Im standing by it.

Loved interior though!

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but if you try you can usually find something with just about every car that you enjoy.
Hating something because it has a blue oval on it has been done many times before.
I think they did a good job with the redesign and took some steps in the right direction.

IIRC the 99-04 is considered part of the SN95 generation and not it's own. Similar to the 98-02 refresh of the 4th gens or the 87-93 refresh of the fox body .

The more I look at it the less I don't like it. Would like to see a different recess along the doors, a more retro style but otherwise I don't think it's terrible.

Still think it's a step back but I could get used to it.

Except I don't give a **** about what people think about my car and I don't give a **** if others agree with me that the new mustang looks like ****. The key work in your statement was OPINION. I don't hate it because it's a ford I hate it because I think it is ugly as ****. Not sure why your taking my OPINION so personal but thank you for saying something about my car you don't like cus I don't give a ****. Oh and this is a GM based site. It's not a mustang forum where I went and talked **** on the car so your point really makes no sense.

lol nope. I'm in a damn good mood. Just responding to someone who made no sense and was clearly upset by my opinion. It makes more sense if you read it in a calm manner and not an aggressive one.

Looks good to me.

The convertible version actually looks good and I'm not a fan of most convertibles.
