    Imagine the profit margin on the Puddle Lamp Color Covers for this! You could be selling 16 per car, 8 per side! :thumbsup:

    Rofl...Chevy out there patenting clutch designs to bring manual to mid engined vette and here we have Ford playing with puddle lamps instead of making better transmissions...

    Yeah... because they only employ 1 thinker and it is an either-or scenario. :like:

    Do they think this is going to sell more cars or make me want one?

    What I'd rather see Ford steal from BMW is the electronic arm in the E90 3 series coupes that hands you your seatbelt when you close the door. Reaching for the seatbelts in my mustang is a bitch, especially since I have Recaros

    You don't keep it in the little holder on the seat? I know it's not as secure as the one on the standard seats but it should still get the job done.

    If it is anything like the holder in my 'vert, it puts the seatbelt way to high and across the bottom part of my neck. Since I am very sensitive to that, I keep it out. But in my standard seats I just reach back with my left hand and pull it up, don't even think about it anymore. Passengers seem to have a tougher time. But for me, I occasionally have passengers in the back seat so that also makes attaching the seatbelt to the front seat a bit of a hassle. The only time I put it in the holder is on the passenger side, occasionally when I have the top down certain winds make the buckle flop around and smack the plastic molding. Will put it in the holder on these days (reaching over from the driver's seat) to stop it from doing that.

    OK, I'm assuming this isn't official, but someone has certainly gone to great lengths to produce these scale models. I found it on a FB page with no details other than "You saw it here. First. 5 years from now The Mustang. Yes or No"

    Whilst its obvious there are two models here, its worth pointing out there are actually different......particularly around the front end (I prefer the one in the second image down, with the larger grille). Sadly, with the images being quite small and low-res, its difficult to make out the details.

    After a bit of initial shock, I actually like these more than I thought I would, considering this is pushing the Mustang design forward a lot. My only concern would be the narrow DLO (Day Light Opening - or side windows to you and I!!) and lack of rear seat space. If this were a 2-seater, then no problem, but one of the things that has made (and continues to make) the Mustang a great sales success is its usability (decent-ish back seat & trunk room with good visibility)

    Im a bit on the fence with the look, need to see it in bolder colour like a red. Although, Im glad it's moved the design away from the 18 front refresh

    Interesting concepts...although I’d prefer a somewhat less radical front end appearance, this is the type of design language I was expecting as the Mustang moves forward.
    The one with the grill and hood vents makes think hybrid or straight ICE.
    The other screams BEV.

    I hope the next Mustang looks nothing like that. I dislike the Camaro because of the tiny side windows. This is even worse.

    Wow. That has to be legit in some form. The one with the larger grill reminds me a little too much of the new Camaro refresh, I prefer the one that's nearly grill-less. The lack of a grill also seems to suggest EV to me as well. Clearly these are just concepts so the window area will have to get bigger and the roof higher for production, but as a design direction I think it looks pretty cool. Won't be replacing my Bullitt though lol.

    Very cool ideas there. I like some things about both of them. I'm surprised by the lack of innovation at the rear of the cars, which makes it seem less likely to be a "real" Mustang concept IMO. But the fronts look good. Obviously the roof couldn't be so low and the gaps between the wheels and wheel arches would have to be increased in a real production version.

    I'm not in love with a huge, glowing pony front and center on the grill, but other than that they look good to me. Also the cowl hood is not my favorite. The body creases on the side and the look of the nose are really good. The creases by the rear window a la `70 Charger are good as well.

    I honestly thought these "concepts" would get more of a reaction.......even if it wasn't positive :crazy:

    Actually, the more I look at it the more I like it, especially the top photo with the front and side profile.

    The side profile of the 18 is the best part, minus the spoiler.
