It almost certainly is using the carbon radiator support.

so after 17 pages the only real complaint is the use of last years headlight design? which everyone loved last year.

have you seen the shit show going on with the '19 Camaro refresh? Rejoice Mustangers.

Or you both could not add tone to text that isnt there. You know what they say about assumptions.

You're still going on about this. That says more about your personality than anyone here needs to.

Some people are curious of the side skirt that is going half way up th car. I looked at one of the screenshots from the NAIAS teaser video thread and cranked up the brightness. I think that extra splitter is going to be part of the car.

So, why would this car be more superior than Hellcat and ZL1? Not putting any product down.

Ford with all their experience on high performance for years, has spent a lot of time on this car. So there is to be something special to stay on the top of Hellcat & ZL1.

The GT350s produced in 2017 and 2018 have the coolers, so I expect they weigh a bit more than a 2016 tech. That is, unless you've added some aftermarket parts to it.

Perhaps you completely missed my point. Once again, if the lights fit the same profile as the 2015-17s then they could very well be different and these could just be placeholders. That said, the lights are about the only thing that isn't camoflaged, so going by your logic it would make it even more likely that these aren't the production headlights.

I really hate to fuel this fire but I think there's a lot of wishful thinking regarding the headlights. The official Ford teasers as well as camo models all show 2015 style headlights. Seems pretty logical that's what we're getting.

The front shot teaser showed 15-17 Headlights so I’m putting my money on it.

Not really wishful thinking, just saying it's plausible. Several manufacturers have released significantly revised headlights using the same bezels and mounting hardware. To simply assume that Ford would have to use the 15-17 headlights just because they have to use the same surrounds and mounts is silly.

But let’s be open-mind in here.

It IS possible that the GT500 will use “blacked out” Headlights like the one’s seen on the video teaser. Same geometry but with the “chrome part” in a dark color.
