Great photography... really. I like the new profile, I'm ok with the front, I'm not even in like with the rear view. I can learn to be ok with the tail lights but as mentioned before, that big awkward rectangle is just on the wrong car.

The Crystal Red is a V6 non-RS.
good observation's

v6 rs/non-rs models..finally. Other than the dual tail pipes, looks are, especially that boomerang-looking excuse for a spoiler.

..put some 24" rims on them(as a distraction)
I don't want to hate it, but I just don't like it.

The quad exhaust on the v6's is bada$$!!! However, not a fan of the small fog lights. I like the taillights (I'm in the minority). Not sold on the rest of the front end, yet.

Idk, head on, the front end looks meaner but from an angle, it looks like the grill is too small. As for the back. I love the retro lights! I wish they'd have installed these in 2010 like the geniuses they are. Anyway, it's the squared trunk and sharp corners that make it look too "prelude" or "Honda like." It's something that'd grow on me like the 2010 rear end which I hated from the get go. But would this look make me trade mine in for? Not no but HELL NO!

Now the Z/28? In a heartbeat! IF the price was right.

I don't hate it.

But I sure don't have that same instant love that i had the first time I saw my first Gen5.

Quite frankly if that was the first Gen5 I would be driving a Mustang GT.

BTW - it reminds of a > symbol. Small front end, big butt.

Well, the LS and LT models have a mini spoiler now on the trunk. Kinda weird.
Don't get why the fog lights are so small on the RS and LS/LT models, makes it look odd. Taillights are different on the RS/SS models compared to the rest.

I wonder what the ZL1 is gonna look like now!?

Those tiny fog lights and halos. For me they killed the muscle look

Its good for some one looking for sedan with performance.

Glad i bought they 2013 before they stopped the production

I like the wheels, thats about it though, the front end looks very "wimpy" in my opinion, and the tail lights are very "euro-style".

my initial reaction was, I didn't like it at all.

after watching the z/28 reveal, I loved it.

looking at these picks, I hate it again. lol

the only thing i like about any of those pics is the quad exhaust... other then that the only thing i like about ANY of the design changes are the non RS headlights... on 2010-2013 I only like RS headlights, but on the 14, I only like Non RS.... Theyre WAY too narrow for that big halo, and overall look distorted/bugeyed without the grill overlapping the turn signals.. the 2010-13 masks this

OT but it seems like they slapped on a G35 spoiler

From what I understood the ZL1 will have the current front w/ the new back. Will be interesting to see.

Yes, and that seems to be unfortunate but I understand the dollar and cents reasoning behind that. I know that if I do not get something soon that I will either wait until the 6th Gen is released or go with another manufacturer. Unless of course the in person visit of the 14 really knocks my socks off.

Still doesn't have the Gotta have it looks as the 10-13 design but its not horrible just different im kinda getting use to the rear end as I see more driving photo's its becoming better looking but the front for me is now not looking as great as I initially though and that crappy chrome strip will have to be gone. Oh well looks like a 6th gen for me.
