Meh-stang. Too big. Very busy in places. Looks better from the rear, IMO. Mega screen not in keeping. I'm still not a fan of the "stuck on tablet" look. The headlamps and taillamps are fabulous.

Thank you, we had a group of four designers for the assemblies,
we were not responsible for the look, we were just responsible for the actual parts.
The look is directed from Ford, It’s their design we just make it
You all did a nice job executing the easter egg.

...I'd definitely consider replacing my Spider with the new Black Horse Edition
The badge needs to be made more scratch resistant.

That's gotta stand out there.

Every automatic Mustang I saw had a rotary shifter. 🤮

This was the only Fiat on display.

If Ford did a convertible based on the orgininal (esp. the size), I'd be out there test driving it.

Keep it clean, make it an honest interpretation of the original, not just a modern version of the 1970s car. (Geez, not everyone wants a wannabee race replica with farty mufflers.) At the rate they are going, they'll soon catch up to what Chev did with that thing they call a Corvette.

Steve.
I like how Mustangs fit in with automotive royalty.

Keeps insurance lower in the states to have rear seats.
How much extra are we Spider owners paying?
No idea, I'm not an actuary.
Nevertheless, please substantiate your original statement. Do you have any data or articles to share?
Not a fan of the headlights. Should have stayed retro round.
Yeah me too, but the round headlight gig was given to the Ford bronco.
IMO, the 2005 was this century's best looking Mustang. Lighter than today's model as well.
