ttac photochop new ford mustang

I decided to join this effort of slowly and painfully teasing the ‘Stang fans with an image of my own. Based on the pictures we’ve seen so far from Ford and on what else I could see by peeking through the camouflage of the test cars, my rendering tries to bring a little light over this new Ford design. Unfortunately the new car won’t be getting anything from the Giugario Concept, nada, zilch. However, the new style doesn’t seem that bad. The side view is new an old in the same time (tribute to the first gen) with an elegant front arch that continues in a side straight prominence disrupted towards the back to form sculptural shoulder over the rear wheel. The fascia is an evolution of the current model (which was inspired by the original pony) therefore already familiar. The grille between the lights is narrower and underlined by a superb bevel that melts into the hood and into the front spoiler. The edgy hood (we’ve already seen spied) has a new “power bump” and creases that lead to the sides of the grille. Clearly not a revolution, this new Stang will get the job done (design wise) and will appear to be smarter and lighter. Even if it isn’t, particularly.

    I don't mind the center lights but they need to move closer to the headlamps and be smaller in diameter. If they would build me one that got 35 mpg with a 5 or 6 speed I'd buy one. Wouldn't need 300+ HP, just something that can keep up with the average compact car by Honda.

    joeaverage : I don’t mind the center lights but they need to move closer to the headlamps and be smaller in diameter. Since you mentioned it, I'd like to see Avarvarii's work with the V6 Pony package's grille. The framed pony ornament and small fog lights would look absolutely sinister on this photochop.
  • Canam23 I moved to Los Angeles in 1968 and the air was barely breathable. Thanks to the mandating of pollution controls and the work of the Air Quality Management District, it's 100% better today. When the first pollution targets were set in the 70's, Detroit moaned that it would be impossible to achieve, meanwhile the Japanese sat down and figured out how to do it. As a result of the constant strengthening of the anti pollution laws, our air is much less dangerous for our children. Furthermore, engineering has now created very clean, powerful and efficient engines. So Stellantis, I'm not buying it.
  • Random1 So several of the interboro crossings are cheap: Brooklyn bridge, Manhattan bridge, Madison Ave, Willis/3rd Ave. One or two others I think.$18 is weirdly cheap, but "early bird" all-day parking is easily under $25 at many, if not most, places. That garage is actually on 62nd St, so I might be able to still drive in post-congestion, but I can't imagine they won't jack up that rate when the time comes, they're gonna be over run.
  • FreedMike Right, the fact that Jeep sales are down this year has nothing to do with it...nope. See FlyersFan's post above for the figures. They're ugly. Now, you'd think that a fact like this might be in this story, but a headline like "Jeep announces layoffs because its' sales are down" just doesn't have enought red meat to toss out. But toss "California" into the mix and voila! Political food fight. And given the political proclivities of a large bloc of Stellantis' U.S. customers, why not blame the big bad gubmint? And by the way, if Jeep has a beef with California, what's with this ad?
  • 3SpeedAutomatic Drove a rental Renegade in Florida. Tigershark engine vibrated like crazy at stoplights. Someone had bumped the plastic cladding and parts were ready to fly off at speed. If you could pick one up on the cheap, you would give to your kid for college or trade school. Once they were earning a steady paycheck, it would be traded in a flash!!🚗🚗🚗
  • SCE to AUX I don't understand how BMW keeps this brand in business.
