GM future styling vs Blue oval

http://www.leftlanenews.com/photos/f...icture-15.html, Fords next mustang possibly. Not trying to be foolish posting this on a Camaro forum but since this is the straight rival for our Camaros I figure we got to see what the competition is doing.

Looks like Ford new possible design with a hint of sexy, smooth and a tad bit of European styling and the claims of independent rear suspension is really in the works.

Independent rear suspension is confirmed. Everything else is just speculation at this point

With the Mustang getting IRS, what is GMs excuse for having motors putting out less HP? They can't say at least our cars handle better.

GM is fixing their excuse with a smaller light weight platform. shoot keep the LSA and everything else but drop 300lbs. i think ill be alright with being a few ponies down on power cause the IRS for Ford mean they will lose alittle on their 1/4.

The link you posted doesn't show the pictures you have in the OP... it's a red car that looks different in the back than the one you posted and says EVOS on the back...

I highly doubt the LSA will be around in the 6th gen. The gen V engines will be out by that time.

Sorry I didn't mention that I did that to show another possible design of what may be the new Stang.

ford's plan is to drop some weight too. the IRS and lighter weight (not to mention the now confirmed ecoboost engine options) are all part of ford's "globalization" of the mustang. if all the rumors and ford's off-the-record comments are true, then the new mustang will weigh less than the current GT model even with the IRS.

I love euro styling.. but do not like the 15 mustang 'design.' We'll see, but they have to remember that these are supposed to be muscle cars/pony/etc. Not euro/asian designed eco cars.

That's the way things will go in the new "global" market.
