Honestly I think the people saying their '13 will be better than the '15 are the people who end up with sentimental value in it. If i were them and i spent money on my '13 to make it my own then i would be saying the same thing

Better is relative term to the individual using it. The only reason I have any concerns about the next gen stang is because it is the first made for a global market. There has to be some sort of paradigm shift involved with that. It's literally the first time ever that our cars are being designed with another culture in mind. Who really knows how it will turn out. It'll certainly make a ton of power and have great numbers, but it could also feel very foreign in execution. Who knows...

I disagree somewhat... I had a lot of mods into my 08 and it was sentimental and I still miss it to this day, first mustang and all first manual car...

I saved up for a supercharger and used it as down payment on the 5.0 when it came out.

Now since the 08 was a v6 you could argue that the power increase swayed me and its hard for me to say wether or not I would have gone from a 08 v8 to an 11 v8 or not at that time.

However, now things are different and I have found that its better to buy the first version of a car like the mustang every time and trade the previous model in on it if you want to stay current and keep the best resale value. Waiting to buy a 13 or 14 seems like a bad idea to me when the 15 is right around the corner. Ford hasn't disappointed in a long time, they're on a roll with their whole lineup.

Next year is goin to be awesome.

That's an excellent and valid point, but of the 5 countries I have been to outside of the US I have seen an imported mustang in all of them including England where the roads aren't even big enough lol.

I don't think ford wants a global car I think the world wants an American car.

But I could be wrong, time will tell.

I don't think it'll suck. It might take a little time to accept the change. I know even after I bought my '11 I wasn't thrilled about the shape of the rear end but it grew on me.
Me, I agree about the 11 too, my fav is the 07 Shelby gt-h and the closet thing an 11 has come to winning me over is the cervinis version but rather than invest in that, ill get a 15 probably at the end if the year when the price drops like I did with my 11.

I figure I only really have to invest in a spoiler. No one will see the front

It's all about the unknown and something new. The S197 had almost same impact as the original lineup, it brought back the camaro and challenger from the dead.
Since its all unknown, we tend to nitpick, like motor trend complaining about cup holders.
The euro angle is what scares me and causes me to lean towards it getting screwed up. But hopefully it'll be awesome and beat out camaro's.

You cant tell with the camo on it but looks like they have something underneath it on the rear of the roof to throw us off from seeing its more of a fastback design.

They have padding over the entire length of the roof to throw us off of the true roof line, they also have a fake front and rear bumper on to cover up the tail and front lights.

Nope, the 4 cylinder is one of the few things they did confirm.

Should be a big seller, at least in Europe.

IMO the 4cyl kinda takes away from it being a sports car you know? It makes the car into kind of a ricer type.

Not really, a 4cyl turbo can put out a lot of power.

Different strokes for different folks I guess. I love me a rumbly, lopey V8 but I'd take a tuned I4 over most domestic tuned V6s any day of the week.

It's attitudes like this that tear the Mustang community apart. It's really immature when people bash on v6's. We need to bash on Camaros, not each other.

Exactly. I'm simply saying I do not think I4's really fit a Mustang. No matter how much power you can get out of one, it's meant to be a sports car, V6 or V8, not an economy car

All personal preference, I owned a 04 v6 before my gt now. It was nice little car, but I won't go back to one now.
I'd like to talk to sum of the camaro guys that were mustang owners before but went with the crap box instead? Hear the reason why they trading stang in for it or whatever it is...
I'm not gonna lie I'd take a 67-69 camaro any day. Love that Look. But any year after that can take a jump off a cliff

Saying a 4 cylinder doesn't belong in a Mustang is completely ignoring its history. The SVO was an engineering marvel, purpose built, and one of the best performing cars of its time, outperforming even the GT. For the next one, a 300-350hp tune, ~200lbs lighter with better weight distribution and a good torque curve?

Considering how great it will perform, I'm not sure how anyone can say that doesn't fit a Mustang.

It is my opinion, there are already great I4 cars, Imprezas, Evos, and the new Scion FRS's. I simply think apart from SVO's from 84-86 Mustang has always been offered in only V6 and V8 and they should've kept it that way. But that's my opinion, you're free to think anything you want. I'll be driving my big V8, rumbling down the road.

Sure, and that 4 might be able to be better built to carve canyon roads with a better weight balance. They were offering 4 cylinders in Mustangs before the 84-86 SVOs. Just because a Mustang is a 4 cylinder doesn't mean it's "rice" like someone else in the thread said.

But of course, if you want the V8, then buy the V8, just don't talk smack about those that don't necessarily need as much power and want something with better weight balance (and fuel mileage).
