    Does that rear spoiler look like a bowtie to anyone else???

    I kinda like the look. A Camaro with Mustang taillights.

    Clearly there's absolutely no resemblance whatsoever.

    Oh wait!
    Yes... you're absolutely right!
    Saw the "Camaro" traits instantly.

    Seems like that should be Body Design 101... don't look like your competition!

    The headlight/grille section remind of a Kia Optima and maybe a Honda Accord.

    ^^This^^ doesn't mean that I don't like it.
    Overall, I think I do.

    I like both the GT and the Dark Horse, but I absolutely hate the dashboard iPads. I want a real instrument cluster, that looks correct for the car. I’m not in the market, but that could be a deal breaker for me. I’d need to see it in person to make a final decision.

    I still like the body lines on my 2014 better.

    An IT guy I know who's an S550 owner said the iPad dash is run by the unreal game engine for those of you that know computer games. he said its the first time that this has ever been used in a vehicle.

    Epic's unreal is a fantastic development platform. Good stuff.

    I couldn't agree more. In the late summer of 14 I was in the market for a new Mustang, as I am now. Once I saw the 15 the choice was obvious. The S550 was the worst looking Mustang I had ever seen. Great car, but just looked horrible. I'm in the market again for a new Mustang and the S650 reveal made up my mind. That car is heinous. Makes the S550 look good, even though one is the derivation of the other. So 2022-2023 S550 base GT for me.

    I like the interior they showed during the reveal.
    I can't believe how much worse it looks in the base-trim cars

    I’ll just be keeping my 14. The new horsepower / torque and the ability to run pretty wide tires is nice , but the iPads for the dash just doesn’t do it for me. I guess I’m just fond of the Gen 1 coyote cars (11-14) and the rawness of them. My particular car has a lot of suspension work done and handles very well, but it’ll still tighten you up. Maybe the new gens will look better in person. Bet that darkhorse would be fun to run through the manual transmission tho.

    I am afraid the ipad dashes are standard faire now. No going back from them. It's the industry transitioning to the EV future. I watched the revile with some of my high school students, they have had iPads since the cradle, they expect them, it's us oldies that love those analogue dials, they see them like we see rotary phones.

    I just got my 2022 gt two weeks ago. I’m getting used to the digital dash and parts of it I like. I have owned an iPad since the day they were first sold. I take mine everywhere. I’m so glad I’m not stuck with that new dash. Give me a clock, a speedometer, and a tach and I’m a happy guy.

    Standard fair is one thing, having it looked like you forgot them until the day of the reveal, then plopped them in there, is another thing entirely.

    2023 BMW M3 dash.
    Apparently the single-wide-glass-display look is spreading

    Welcome to the digital age. :(
    I'm an old fart that still prefers the analog experience. Here's my favourite M3:

    What "Forty61" said. Rear is too angular, hood has very little drop until the last foot or so, the rectangular digital screen is an eyesore, and the S650 is very heavy. This looks more like a refresh than a re-engineered vehicle. Nice HP but it must be generated at something north of 7k RPM and much of it is wasted hauling the extra weight around.

    For all the ballyhoo about the S650/next generation, I am disappointed and think Ford should be going back to the drawing board. Maybe it's the last ICE Mustang before the hybrid/turbo shows up and that will be too bad.

    Last gripe: "Dark Horse". Is that the best Ford Marketing can do? Get Bullitt and Mach1 models out and forget the Avenger-inspired monikers.

    Sorry to be so down on the new model but Ford engineers can do much better.
