imho (& that's all it is) the latest renderings are the closest yet ...with a few exceptions...
- the grille is wrong, too much based on the current and the fascia is too busy.
- same with the greenhouse, too much based on the current.
Where I think they're closer is the overall shape except imho it will be even more extreme!
I'm now thinking, instead of a 1-box or 2-box-or 3-box; it's going to use a 4-BULGE arrangement:
- engine compartment (actually the whole front ~40%)
- passenger compartment
- two rear wheel bulges (with the center of the trunk-rearend kind of hollow/recessed between them).
with a few sharp creases connecting the bulges
(along with being a few inches less in length and hopefully almost as much less in height)
the most-basic shape could be QUITE different - I hope more rounded ... WITH some very sharp creases/ridges, as I said above (but will show others if I get to a rear view);
which will make the heritage cues look VERY fresh on an ALL-new, JUST-recognizable, Mustang
there's a lot of the Giugiaro Mustang in the rendering (no surprise considering the new Z is largely the MKR concept)
quickie tweak ver 2.0
& tweak ver 1.0
