Default Design Battle: Season 2: Session 3

ROUND 1: NelsonDesign vs ElementW

in

My Little Pony

The muscle car wars are back on! The Ford Mustang has always been the leader of the pack, but with the new Camaro and Challenger nipping at its heels the current retro styling is getting a bit staid. With talks of the next model going global, Your mission designers is to design an all new Mustang with "instant recognizability" without relying on retro styling, yet maintaining universal appeal for a world-market application.

Good Luck Designers, please PM me your entries by Mar 03.

(P.S. thanks to swizzle for suggesting the topic)

LET THE BATTLE BEGIN!!

Pity on the competition not happening. Unfortunately ElementW's entry is not immediately recognizable as a Mustang. The best example of the "future" Mustang that is totally modern is the Giugiaro Mustang. Ford was STUPID for not making it the 2010. It needs no badges. Anyone would know it was a Mustang. It looks like a muscle car. It's not retro.

We should make this a full-on contest topic, if we can get commitments for entries. I'd also like to see what people come up with. ElementW, very nice work.

My goal was not to make it look retro and be Mustang recognizable. Kinda hard. I thought Guigiaro's still had a retro look. Anyways, I think it would be a great idea to make it a full entery contest. I would like to see what everyone else can do.

Retro and DNA are not the same thing. Giugiaro had DNA but was not even remotely retro as "heritage inspired" as the 2005 which itself wasn't exactly retro in that it used cues from the 64.5, the 67, and the 69-70. The Corvette uses 1968 DNA but is not retro and THAT is what the Mustang has to pull off. The 2010 is a bizarre fusion of the 2005 and the Giugiaro sort of.
