Hope you love the convertible pictures! The new convertible roof will feature a single center mount release and will operate almost twice as fast for opening and closing.

The new Mustang engine lineup will have improved fuel economy.

+100 Especially with the v6 two piece being documented failing on several occasions, is Ford beefing up the strength in order to handle the increased performance? (Please no more governors at 113mph on a sports car)

The new Mustang features a new platform including rear independent suspension and new drive shafts.

Awesome. I want to be able to beat a Camaro without having to get a tune.

Will some models be pretty maxed out performance wise from the factory or will the aftermarket have lots of room to play with?

Mr. Patel

Thank you for this opportunity. Is there any chance we will be seeing a California Special model with this new generation of Mustang?

Hello Mr Patel,

First off, congratulations on the unveiling and great work to you and the design/engineering team. The car is beautiful. Hopefully when I graduate I'll be able to afford my own.

So my first question is, can we expect to see the 2015 mustang at auto shows (such as the Chicago auto show) and will we be able to hear or sit in it?

Also, is Ford going to give us some hi resolution pictures of the car? The gallery images on Fords website are huge, but when downloaded are reduced to very small images. I want to use those pictures as a desktop wallpaper!!

What type of interior options will we see? I'm hoping to see the return of recaro bucket seats, whether they be cloth or leather (but leather is always better)

Thank you!

Thank you Mr. Patel!

Darn, just thought to ask if that body color-ed diffuser underneath the rear bumper was "standard" for all trims of if it costs extra...

Folks - thanks for the great questions and answers. Mr Patel had about an hour to spend here and we're really glad he was able to stop by on reveal day. At this time we're going to close the thread to avoid confusion since he's not going to be around for more questions today.

Thanks for posting up great questions!
