I’ll be the first older Mustang owner to say I HATE IT! 😜 😆
..."older"....
LoL....


There probably will be some foolish that would say, ...I hate it... maybe Ford or some after market mfr could produce/replicate a Car Cover like that !

That's how I felt about the 2015, & what forced me to buy the 14, that & the 420 hp as the top offering..
The modern Shelby GT350 debuted in 2015 with 526 hp.

I am struggling to wrap my mind around it sharing it’s platform with an SUV and still being a Pony car.

That camo is pretty hilarious... Note the T-bird "porthole" put on the C-pillar tongue-in-cheek.

I'm just happy to see that there's another gen forthcoming... It was love at first sight for me with the 2015, so I'm giving Ford the benefit of the doubt that the new one will also be sexy as hell.

I'm hoping they do better than the Gen6. Gen5 was so far the best.

Boy, I respectfully disagree on that. I think the latest gen S550 is so much sleeker, sexier and well-engineered than the previous. Inside and out.

If Ford had offered a clutch pedal in the S550 GT500, my S197 GT500 would probably be parked permanently.

I still have a hankering, I've just been too busy to bother getting a newer Mustang.

You're allowed to have a different opinion. Mine is all mine, but there's a reason I have an '08 GT500 and that's completely because of the looks.

I was kind of the opposite, bought the 2021 because I loved its looks. Was even willing to take my manual trans requirement off the table given all the other things it brings to the table.

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" wins most of the time. :)

The S550 was a big step forward from the previous S197. The IRS alone makes a massive difference. I cannot argue looks as different people will prefer different looks, but the car is just all around better. Fortunately Ford has been improving the Mustang through the years. We shall see what this S650 brings us.
