I don't get it. That new Mustang doesn't look like a muscle car to me at all.

This one below is the last Mustang that did look like a serious muscle car...

Haha. That back and rocker panels look great, very sporty, but the front and the hood hahaha it looks like a boring sedan. And bottom of the front fascia sits higher than the rest of the car wtf haha don't they know sports cars at all?? (obviously no)

I think you guys are making a mistake. First let me tell you I don't like Fords. So let's be clear on that. The 2014 Mustang when done up as a Gt or Cobra can look pretty good, at least tough. But my 1LE kills it for looks.

Okay. I still think you are making a mistake about the 2015 Mustang. I think when you see it on the Street in GT or 5.0 form it will look good. I think Ford has managed to make it look new age but still retained enough Muscle car look to look good when optioned properly. Stripes, scoops etc.

I think this is exactly what Chevy will do on the Next GEn. In the Motor trend writeup the new Ford has some neat additions, like the push button start and others.

I am also concerned about some of the Boss things they are incorporating into the standard 5.0. Those additions with even a slight weight reduction could make them pretty quick stock.

I actually find myself liking it more and more.

Compared to the 2014 Camaro...I think Ford just grabbed more of the market share.

Jeez Louise --

Yes - it's our competition - but let's wait until we see it in person before making nasty remarks about it.

Competition is a good thing............or, as the adage says:

".. an incoming tide raises all boats...." (........or something like that...)

Looks like a Nissan GTR and a Jaguar XKS and a Honda Accord had a baby. But with all the new Mods and IRS its is going to kick the shit out of a non-moded camaro SS. Come on Chevrolet show the mustang who is BOSS.

I would not be surprised if Mustang pulls ahead of Camaro in sales until the 6th gen arrives.

Just sayin'.

I am in the middle of whether I like it or not. But here's the thing, you guys need to realize that this is the evolution of muscle cars. They are all slowly moving away from the "true" muscle car look, and going into sport coupe look instead. I would not be surprised if the 2016 Camaro will go in this direction as well.

Love the new Mustang. I am very tired of retro. So are many other buyers, not here of course. The next Camaro better be good or I may jump ship if I get tired of my 1LE.

I also like the turbo 4. Progress. The power plant of the future, get used to it.

The secret to muscle is RWD, not the number of cylinders.

It's an okay look I think. Could be better and I'm sure once modded, it will look cool but as of now? Nope. Nope. Nope.

This Retro is on the way out. IMO, the 05-09 Mustang already looks dated, and I know this will make alot of the guys here mad, but the Camaro looks really dated as well to me

This next mustang will be old looking just as fast as it looks like every other car out there..fusion? Taurus? Mitsu Tib? ....the cues are not very mustang like but more of a conglomerate of other cars. The best looking mustang's imo are the 13-14...not TOO retro and with modern led, better styling. The 2015 mustang is pretty it's just too much like every damn car made nowadays.

I certainly don't want to troll much on that subject, so I'll let this guy say it.
