Well, THIS is a different front fascia for the new GT500!

I kind of like it. It will be interesting to see what the rest of the car looks like, as the front sure is changed from any other Mustang!:

I know what you mean. It also looks very Audi like in its out line shape— thank God it does not look Lexus like though. Those front ends are FUGLY!

What the Hell? Don't car designers know how to design a good looking grill anymore? That just doesn't belong on a Shelby or any Mustang ever!

Looks like that new front end may be “somewhat” polarizing. I am going to wait to see what the entire package looks like before going all in (or not) on the new front fascia.

I will say right now, that given that GT500 styling cues have worked their way into the more basic levels......Ford, please don’t incorporate this grill on the 2021 GT.....

Agreed.
Need to see the entire car.

Sort of a strange photo that Ford released... I'm referring to the great lack of detail, and what appears to be a skinny little tire that was scribbled beneath the drivers side of the car.

A grill opening large enough to drive a tractor-trailer through... And a "pizza-cutter" tire on the front of the car...
I wonder what it all means?

Yeah, I’ll wait until I see the entire car but that outline doesn’t do it for me. Agree with the Audi-esque appearance.

I think that what you may be seeing there is the photographer’s signature, not a tire. I’d hate to see Ford try to turn the GT500 into a 1/4 mile warrior.

Here is a rendering of what it could look like ...




I think it looks awful. I also think the 2015+ Mustangs all look like they should have a Hyundai badge because the front end looks like a Genesis Coupe.

Maybe.....just maybe, they need that big a grill with that kind of airflow to cool 750 HP effectively....hmmmmm.....I wonder.
You rendering above, is just too much....WAY too much front grill. It literally takes over the entire car and when you look at it, the grill is all you can see. It’s like there is NO car behind it at all.

I see that someone took a bit of "artistic license" and added a louvered hood.

Imagine that cavernous space filled up with all manner of engine and transmission coolers. There may even be enough room left over to fit a giant intercooler....

Not my rendering. One I just found a while ago and it seems to resemble the one that Guard posted. Not sure if what he posted was official stuff from Ford, if so, then I think the HUGE grill is more likely to happen, than not. I fully agree with Guard, way too much grill. Almost like a Lexus front end.

As for the louvers, I think whoever did it was thinking Ford would copy GM's 5th gen Camaro Z28 and ZL1, it has something similar. It's just a simple way to extract the heat from whatever blower they decide to put on this car.

That rendering looks like a Bullhead Shark on the prowl & coming to eat your *** up.
Kinda cool in some ways & kinda not in others. Let's see what the final outcome is...???

That’s what I was thinking. The hot rod Camaros and Corvettes have something like 11 radiators and intercoolers trying to avoid overheating, and the Corvettes still overheat on the track. Chevy is being sued by a coalition of owners whose track days have been ruined by overheating.

The Roush ones are ok but yeah... agree... I don't like the 13/14 fronts either. Car looks freaking happy to see you. The 10-12 front looks pissed off which is what a fast car should look like.

The 18+ has a mean front on it but not a huge fan of the 2020 GT500 renderings. Also... with the 18 GT making like 500 to the wheels and running 11s stock... who needs the 500 honestly? I mean yeah Carroll Shelby philosophy but seriously...
