2014 ford mustang for the next-generation

Mays said that the car remains a pure muscle blood car, but at the same time still has 50 years of life remaining. Ford’s engineers will add some technologies Mustang 2014, but still simple to understand: the engine in front, behind the traction and steering wheel in the middle. Ford is planning a new face to the famous muscle car. J Mays, Ford’s vice president of global design and chief creative officer said that the next generation Mustang will be ‘a really cool car’. He also said that the 2014 Mustang will ‘leap forward’ from every point of view.

OK Guys - what do you think of the proposed new design?

It still has a Mustang (kinda) front end.  It won't look anything like that when it finally hits the production line though.

Agreed.  I do think it respects the lines/heritage of the Mustang, but it almost resembles the little MB 2-seater.

It's a 2 seater for sure.  Maybe a couple of little kids could get in the back seat, but certainly not an adult.

not too bad of a design... window line should be raised a bit and the trunk a bit bigger. Also hoping they don't go too fancy and high tech with sync and nav systems and all that crap. All I want is a simple muscle car.

looks like a 3rd gen RX7 with a mustang front end. I really like the 2005-2011 style. I have always wondered what would happen if they came out with one exactly like a 1965-1970 body style, with all the modern upgrades, would it sell? I would buy one, but I wonder about the general public? I feel the 2005 style did just about that, and look how many they have sold.

Just glad they are keeping the long hood and short trunk. I think if they made one with the old school with new school installed it would sell well. Yes, looks like not no room for a 6' guy like myself in the back seat. I have a hard enought time getting into my 65, and that is the driver seat. But still also love the newer Mustangs. Would have saved a lot of rust if they had dipped them in the 60's like they do today.
