S197 vs S550: Side by Side Pictures






I adore the new roofline, very classic shape. You can tell the changes were evolutionary not re-evolutionary, I'm ok with that. Aside from the lost decade that is the Mustang II the mustang has been steadily evolving over the last 50 into a truely world class vehicle.

Amen to the new roofline. Thanks for posting up the pictures. Since i got a good glimpse of them together i have to say that the s197's body lines look dated. I really can't complain about the new look.

agreed S550 already makes the last gen look so poor. Although i was never a fan of last gen i much prefered the original retro style from '05.

I expected the new Mustang to stay similar to the previous one

Some of the renderings of the Mustang prior to it coming out made it look like a Ford fusion.

Great comparison. Looking at the S550 you can see how much better it's design is, it leaner, sleeker, and just overall what a modern day mustang needs to be.

I'm still trying to decide if the flowing glass from the door to the rear pillar was a good idea or not.

Yes, they were getting grief for that but now its all out in the open I really don't think the s550 looks anything like the fusion to be honest.

At least they didn't keep it wrapped under camo, got to love Ford for that. Can't wait to see the special editions now. How much longer for those?
