    Was out and about around town lake and spotted a setup for filming the new 2018's Austin. Snapped a few pics. Talked to one of the guys, they hauled these down from Detroit. They are pre-production versions and just rolled off the line last week. I should have taken a picture but one was VIN 000018

    The new orange looks awesome! Its a hair more yellow in the pictures than in person.

    The new nose is hideous!

    Its been a while since I read the details, but it appears the bigger screen is standard on the base interior models. interior shots are from the PP orange car, which has cloth seats.

    [UPDATED WITH MORE PHOTOS/BURNOUT VIDEO]

    It looks like the new redline is between 7250-7500. Looking at the interior pics.

    2017 dash/ interior? I thought the LCD cluster is going to be standard for 2018.

    Optional.

    Perhaps standard on certain trims.

    On the premium cars for LCD.
    the blue premium one had it. the cloth seat PP car did not.
    I could care less about any of the ecoboost details... so I didn't even ask

    Do the Base GT's get the 8" touch screen as standard? I thought I saw cloth seats in the orange fury one!!!

    Nice, thanks for that! Looks like a firm redline at 7,500 rpm!

    Geez the car does look aweful. The sliver-thin DRL LED's are still dull and dim, not hardly even visible in the shade. They need to give them some LIFE!!!!! Someone needs to come up with a LED bulb upgrade that brightens this things front end up, it's just so bland and sleepy looking.. The metallic orange is just "Tangerine Scream" from the Focus ST. Identical to my neighbors 14' ST. Let's have a nice purple or something. And the Crimson color looks like "Root Beer" brown. But it's name puts it in close se proximity to the Ruby red. And as the OP said, the front end is truly disgusting. The front lower chin spoiler and lip are WAY to high off the ground and angles upward!!!!!, does Ford want this thing to go airborne after 88 mph? What a mess. And it still has Mid 70's Toyota Celica GT tail lights. Same old interior and crappy Pirelli All season tires on base cars. The car is also said to have gained 45-65 lbs from more standard "dumb distracted driver aids"..... Well, it looks fatter. Yuck. This could be the first mustang "I don't buy" in 38 yrs. absolutely hideous. FMC is finally going down the drain. Sad!!!!!

    It looks like the arm rest/cupholder/shifter area isn't raised or padded like I initially thought, it just has some stitching in front of the shifter. I also wonder what it'll take to swap in the base model version of the 8" touch screen into my '16, and whether or not it'll be worth it. I just want some Apple CarPlay, dammit.
