2012 Mustang concept
« on: February 01, 2010, 03:17:25 PM »
What do you guys think?  Of course when it finally comes out it won't look exactly like this, but it looks like a bad ass ride to me.

As far as I know, the Europeans don't have a concept like this.  Most of their cars are too square.  This is an aerodynamic hunk of Detroit steel that will hopefully continue to challenge the world market for cheaper than usual sports cars.

Well the Giugiaro Mustang is all Italian and it has alot of the same lines. Europe has changed the look of there cars alot in the last 10 years even Volvo but it was owned by Ford and soon to made in China like everything else

Let's just hope our Mustangs are not manufactured in China.

Whether or not we old Mustangers like it or not, this design is the wave of the future for gas powered muscle cars.  That includes the Camaro.

If you look at most all cars today, they all look the same basically.  I am just proud that Ford Mustangs are leading the crowd in design, and that cars like the Camaro are having to follow the lead.

I don't like it, kind of resembles the Giugiaro.

They already changed the body style for 2010, they don't need to change it anymore.  I already miss the 2005-09 body style.

yuck. wheels are way to big. car looks too round. doesn't even look all that aerodynamic in the process. All I can say is I'm glad I have my 07 and it looks like I may never switch if they're gonna look like that.
