    I bloody hope not. It looks like a Honda Accord.

      Holy ground clearance Batman. That render feels a bit odd. The wheels look huge, but if you shrink them down and lower the ride height a bit, the proportions would be a bit off.

      It's probably not too far off. We know Ford loves the Aston style grill and narrow headlights. Everything else should be very Mustang familiar. Heh. We'll see. Is this thing supposed to have IRS finally?

        I think it looks like a very nice step forward for the Mustang. Less muscle car/more real sports car

          I hope not. The side scallops are almost completely gone, and the whole thing looks like a stylized Ford front plopped onto (as the OP said) an Accord bodyshell. I'm still waiting for the real thing to be shown.

            I think there is quite a bit of artistic interpretation here, so I am going to reserve judgement for now. Off the record, not bad.

              I don't like it as much as other renders I've seen. That probably means it's closest to reality.

                I think the only thing that's close is the front.

                I do hope it losses a couple hundred pounds. That will really make that 400+ horses do well...

                  It's some third-party render by a person who has to do renders for magazines/the web cause he's not good enough to gain actual emplyoment within the industry.

                  The Mustang Forum post where this images come from describes them as being "refined from CAD images of the actual car, with our various spy photos used as a starting point."
                  This sounds like they had access to actual Ford CAD files, which is what C&D reported as well. But on careful reading, what they say is that, the "resident artist" (read: unemployed bum) of the Mustang Forum created a CAD file working from nothing but the spy shots to produce this render.
                  Battered and weary after the craziness of the 1960s, the self-righteousness of the 1970s and the greed of the 1980s, I want to go home again, oh, so desperately - home to that land of drive-in restaurants and Chevy Bel-Airs, making out and rock 'n' roll and drag races and Studebakers, Elvis and James Dean and black leather jackets. Not that I ever owned a black leather jacket.

                    Front reminds me of Mitsubishi Lancer. Weird.

                          It looks like an Accord mated with an Audi.

                            Gawd, that render is awful. From the camo mules I got the impression it would look like the Taurus lights and grille, just with the grille leaning forward like classic and retro Mustangs. This...looks like a melting Hot Wheels version of it.

                              That render looks like ass. In a bad way. Looking at the Evos Concept and everything that Ford's come up with since then, I have faith the next Mustang will look much better than that.

                                      C&D has posted this to their facebook with pretty a pretty confident 'this is it' headline.




                                      If it does look like that...well done Ford, well done.

                                        ^ And its transformation into an Aston Martin shall be complete!

                                        Ok not quite but that does look very good.
