Makes me appreciate how well new cars handle thanks to them not having 3’ of ground clearance.

I dislike the new front end, but the bullit bumper would look great with the Cervini's lip I have on my 15. I'd definitely consider "upgrading" to this model with the "at least 475 hp.." that the car comes with.

yeah, of course. Normally newer technology means better perfomance, no? But in this case I was referring to the aesthetics of these two. Hell, even in its 4x4 form that classic mustang still looks better than its successor. I also like how they chose not to make the paint on the 68 shine haha. But Im sure it's much harder for today's designers to come out with something good looking and innovative than it was back then.

I had to go back and look at a few pics of my 68. Never occurred to me that they were that damned high off the ground.

I’ve never been a a big fan of older muscle cars though. So the off-road looks bother me even more.

They look NOTHING alike, I like both though. It’s like Chrysler was the only company to build a car using 1960-70s language.

Hell even the 350z payed better homage to its past (in terms of design)

So Nissan is planning on bringing back the Xterra...and here's the concept that previews the design.



What's interesting about this is that while sports coupes are essentially a thing of the past, with SUV/CUV sales through the roof, off-roady SUVs and small trucks that were killed off in the mid 00's because of the recession and high gas prices are going to see a renaissance now. This and the new Ranger debuting are perfect examples.

The new Ranger looks great compared to this monstrosity . Fuck this thing looks like they are copying GM's blocky designs from the early 2000's Fuck the design guys at Nissan need to stop taking drugs.

It's like hey well take cues from the IDX drop some acid and get to work.

Pretty nice. I actually do like the front of the new Mustangs. It helps lessen the tall front end aspect. I actually liked the Bullit Stang posted earlier. I would consider purchasing it.

^^^That looks real nice. I wasn't into the Bullitt at all. Pretty sure I'm gonna own one of these S550's someday.

In before the real vs fake/plant carbon fiber argument starts...lol

All kidding aside, that sounds so amazing. I know a few years ago, Ford said they were throwing a shit ton of money at carbon fiber research to find ways of making it more affordable. I wonder what became of that...

Everyone is still hard at work on it. There was just a rumor that the NEXT gen Silverado will have a CF truck bed.

Wasn't it GM that was giving Ford shit in their advertisements on the aluminum bed?

The Bullitt is an interesting option. Paint looks fantastic. The only thing I’d be afraid of is the price being very close to 50k. Scary how much more expensive some mustangs have gotten in the past few years. Tracking them won’t be cheap either given the tire sizes.
