Default Not a fan of the new Mustang styling

Leaked photos found here: http://www.svtperformance.com/forums...l#post13694140

Is it just me or does the 2015 Mustang look similar to a Scion FR-S / Subaru BRZ...I think it is definitely not one of the better body designs...

I think they look more like a 350/370 Z. and they are doing a turbo 4 cyl in 2015 for it. Seriously, thats no longer what a mustang should be. Reminds me of the old cobra 2's with the turbo 4's they made for a very short period. In short, I agree they suck

I'm personally not a fan; I'd be ordering a 2014 while I could if I were a Mustang buyer.

The only thing that I like is it's lighter, but it appears almost too small (like the FRS/BRZ which it looks like).

Except that the c7 doesn't look like all of GMs other current lineup. Ford is trying to make everything the same because they're clearly not that creative anymore(if they even ever where).

Like I said before, not the better looking Mustang yet but looks better than the Camaro and the weight to power ratio is awesome. It will look better when other trim levels are put out.

I think the Camaro looks way better.

This is a step backwards in design I believe

^ Yeah.. I'm not crazy about the C7, but it's slowly growing on me.

I Love the new look!


Seriously! I think it looks badass!

I like the current Fusion over the previous models. Good looking car. That said, the Mustang shouldn't look like a darn Fusion.

I saw a picture online where they compared the new mustang to the Nissan 370 and 350 and OMFG I COULD NOT TELL THE DIFFERENCE!!!

That's a terrible look for the Mustang. Idk why but it reminds me of how hideous the new Camaro rear end is.
