    Recently we saw the first spyshots of a second S550 refresh that could be ready for MY2021. I try my best in Photoshop to create a preview of what the new refresh might look like.

    From what I can see out of the spyshots, there are three big differences to the current Mustang:
    • Turn Signal + Fog Lights are moved higher into the bumper and not in the triangles anymore
    • The triangles in the bumper are totally new
    • the area under the headlights is sticking out much more

    Here's my rendering:

    Good work........I'm not totally sold on the look, but you've certainly captured what I assume lurks under the camo :like:

    2014: omg the S550 looks like a fusion!

    2017: omg the updated S550 looks like a fusion!

    2019: it looks like a fusion!

    It’s almost like cars from the same manufacturer have similar looks to them
    Hmmm

    The 15 looked like a Fusion but as this was based on an Aston Martin that is no bad thing. The above just looks bad

    If it looks close to that, I'll buy one. Looks good.

    Nice job on the rendering. If I were to nitpick I'd say that there would likely be more material between the headlight and the parking light. That's a bit thin. But otherwise, nice job!

    You're not the only one. But, I do prefer the 18/19 GT look.

    From the spy shots, I feel like there's more going on in the bumper corners than this render suggests, but I'm definitely not digging the high placement of the turn signal + fog lights...

    My personal favorite would be this bumper, that would reimagine the 2015 styling. But it's just a rendering I made a while ago out of fun and nothing that will never happen

    Just a gentle reminder of our rule (#3) about inter-model bashing:

    https://www.mustang6g.com/forums/th...of-conduct-please-read-before-posting.118153/

    3. Inter Model Bashing — The forum will not tolerate any bashing of another member's choice of vehicle, options/equipment, modifications, stock vs. non stock etc. Respect for all models and model years (EcoBoost, V6, GT, GT350, 2015-17, 2018+, etc) is expected of all members.

    Thank you :like:

    A member stating that they think the 15-17 looks better is bashing?


    LOL.

    No.....it's to prevent Fusion-Stang comments.

    It sure don't run like a fusion though. 460hp 420tq. If they'd put that in a fusion I'd buy a fusion.

    This is a Mustang board not a Fusion board, so I don't see how inter-model bashing applies, and the comment wasn't egregious. The front end IS similar to a Fusion(as well as the Focus and Fiesta), so a statement of fact is bashing?

    Silly.

    Nope but the V6 sport has 325HP, not shabby for a 4-door sedan. Now where's that blower at...
