    Spying: 2015 Ford Mustang Shows Its Face

    Sometimes, you get very lucky when taking spy shots. Case in point, new spy shots came out today revealing the face of the upcoming 2015 Mustang.

    The shots show the new Mustang sharing almost the same figure as the Ford Evos concept. The front has an athletic stance and features such touches as slimmer headlights and a hexagonal grille.

    The 2015 Mustang is expected to debut next year

    Very Cool Indeed and I agree, the mid 70's to early 80's we can forget about those so called Mutangs.

    You mean the Mustang II of 1974-78 I assume. Once the Mustang was put on the Fox platform in '79, all was essentially OK again. OF course, if Ford were to do this again, they could simply revive the late 1980s Probe.

    I was really surprised to see how much sales of this past redesign have plummeted so much. I wonder what was the cause behind that, was it really the design of the car that people didn't like? I personally though it looked really nice, but I almost never see any of them on the road. I was wondering if it had anything to do with the prices of gas going up, and people looking for more cost efficient vehicles. I had the 99 model mustang previously, and was considering getting one of the new ones when they redesigned them in 2005.

    I think the Camaro and Challenger cut into the sales some...the Mustang had the market to themselves for the most part in '05-09. Anecdotal, of course, but I seem to see more Camaros and Challengers out and about than '10-14 Mustangs.

    I think a lot of it had to do with the price of the car. How many people you know these days that can afford to go to the dealer and spend $30k+ on a new car? I am a very talkative guy and I talk with a lot of the local mom and pop business owners/managers in my area. And business is down everywhere, and a lot of them are struggling to keep the door open. The only businesses doing really good in my area are Walmart and pawn shops.

    Yeah, but the Camaro, even with its compromised interior and heavy curb weight, regularly outsold the Mustang at roughly the same price. So it wasn't price keeping the mustang down... those customers were going to Chevy.

    New Car buyers are a fickle lot and when there was only the New Old Fastback tribute mustang, everyone flocked to it. Once the Camero and Challenger came out those that had a 1-3yr old mustang left for new look at me territory. They will probably flock back to the mustang once the new redesign comes out as it will be new, shinny and rare on the roads.

    I think the 2015 Mustang will finally be a true driver's car. I'm excited about the independent rear suspension which will finally silence the detractors of the live rear axle. Will it be available in Europe as well?

      The rivalry of the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang has been going for ages in the U.S. But now this fight has expanded into China.
      Automotive News reports that a growing group of Chinese buyers are being drawn towards to these models as the exude the no-apologies Americana attitude.
      "We're seeing the beginning of a muscle car culture here. Something that is uniquely American appeals to the Chinese consumer. The image that it relays to the automotive public is very positive," said James Chao, a China market auto analyst with IHS Markit.
      Sales of both models are small with Chevrolet only moving 2,000 Camaros since its launch 2011. Ford is doing slightly better with 6,200 Mustangs sold since its launch in 2015. In the first quarter, Mustang sales saw a 90 percent increase to 963 vehicles. Part of the reason for the slow sales comes down to the price. The Camaro starts about 399,900 yuan (about $58,000) - more than double of the base price of $26,900 in the U.S. The Mustang isn't that far behind, costing about $15 dollars less. Prices are increased due to a 25 percent import tariff on U.S. made vehicles, homologation and shipping fees, and Chinese buyers trending to splurge on higher-time models.
      But despite the low sales, the Camaro and Mustang are bringing buyers to dealers. These models act as eye candy to help draw shoppers into showrooms with the hope they'll purchase a vehicle, where it be the eye candy or something a little less exciting.

      Hey-o,
      I haven't really started a running thread for the new car yet so here it is. I think I owned the car for 8 days when I had my windows tinted 20% all the way around. I cannot stand driving a car w/o tint or the look of a vehicle w/o tint.
      This is about the only "before" picture I have of it.

      Only a few days and $270 later...
      There was actually one thing I bought prior to buying a car that I wanted in my next vehicle... a dash cam. After the accident and knowing that had I not had a witness stop and give their side of the story it could have been a hell hole of he-said she-said.. So I did a little research and bought a Spytec A119 w/ the GPS(you can get it w/o the GPS). Super clean and muuuuch easier install than I expected. The only wires exposed are coming from the center console down and then again from the headliner to the cam itself. The rest is completely hidden.


      A view from the driver's seat... I don't see it at all. That's exactly what I wanted to keep it from being a distraction.

      A view from the outside. It's very difficult to see.

      This past week I finally ordered and received my wheels and tires. This is the first vehicle I've ever actually gone through with changing them as I've always wanted to on all of my vehicles.
      I went with a 18x8 Konig Oversteer wrapped in a 225/45ZR18 Continental ExtremeContact DW. I'll be using the OE setup for the winter months.
      I'll get better pictures of the wheels when I get home.

      OE wheel/tire combo = 47lbs

      New wheel/tire combo = 42.5lbs

       
      I think the only other thing that I would really like to do is wrap the chrome door outline in black or a black chrome.
