The front sorta reminds me of a turtle. It may be a fast car...but turtles dont look fast. Unless they are ninja turtles.

I personally love the look of it. It'* so much better than the mid 90s to present I think. Obviously retro, and it looks like some of my favorite classic Mustangs.

I think GM should have gone more retro with the new GTO. (I saw one on the road yesterday to my surprise! I thought they didn't go on sale till Fall)

I haven't heard much specs on the new Stang, but I know it should have somewhere in the 400hp range. The interior looks really good too.

Retro seems to be the flavour of the month...Thunderbird, Mustang, Prowler? Beetle, Mini,

I guess designers are running out of options

That'* true...look at the new GP. Some obvious design flaws, IMO. They're trying to make something that looks better than the previous ones, and I don't think they do. They're not ugly, but the spoiler is TOO small, and the "ribs" on the doors are too high up. I'm rambling so I'll go now...

"Retro" is better than "Egg".

See what I mean...designers are losing their edge, they have to go back in time and resurrected old looks. That Camaro pic looks straight out of 1973 marketing campaigns.

I also like this updated look for the Mustang. I wish the GM Accountants would stop pooring money into trying to design a Truck that drives like a car. Give that money to the Car Designers. Redesign the Firebird and/or Camaro. Is the Solstice idea still alive?? And give the '04 Bonneville the Series III Engines(Regular and Premium)!!!

The GTO you saw was probably a Manufactures Vehicle. I know here in Jersey you see these cars on the road with a Mfg Vehicle license plate on the car/truck.

And when, exactly was the last time a Pontiac Executive was seen driving down The Boulevard with his Aztek???!!!
