Everyone hates on a new design initially. This has happened with every single model. Go back and read how much people hated the 2015 design initially.

I think partly because they own a current car and love it so much, every possible design is worse than what they have now.

This will change over time -- as it always has.
You might be right, but I know for a fact if the re-design looked like your design I would have ordered one already. That is sexy as hell.

For me, that's a clean, pleasing look I can live with. Nicely done.

Very nice! :thumbsup::cheers:

Now if you can start making molds and poppin' out parts I will SERIOUSLY consider buying a '18. Im sure this would be a money maker.

It would be cool if Saleen would offer their parts in the open market for their '18 concept if there still around when the '18 becomes available...:lol:

I wish it was that easy, but I am certainly looking into it. Not sure if the market is really there like we as enthusiasts, think it is. Big risk with so much current competition.

This is really cool. The narrower upper grille is a cool design trick to eliminate the droopy effect of the original. In Ford's design the grille is too big to be hanging so low.

Also good riddance of those GT fangs. I never liked them either. The EcoBoost grille actually looks beefier side by side.

Really nice work here, great skills :cheers:

But actually I think small upper grille and big lower grille reminds me of the Camaro or the GTT concept:

You need to get someone to make that front end! It would be a game changer if for $1000 fitted you could make an ugly my18 into something stunning. Knowing that was available in the after market I would order a my18 tomorrow.

No way it could be only $1k. Need two new grilles, detailed masking for painting, new LED turn signals. And you don't want super cheap crap. Don't forget the investment in the molds can be very expensive (depending on how many you want to make). Plus, my contacts let me down last time.

I will see what I can do though.
