re front screen... just wondering... would a rear vent up high for the heated air to escape work? either a 'roof chute' or a vent somewhere in the rear screen area

Just wondering.

Is the Gen3 Mustang body a new body or just front and rear updates, but with a lot of carry over Aero bits?

I am sure there are design gurus on the Forum who can tell.

It’s the 7th generation so should be an all new body.
I would say the aero kit will shift over from the current Gen3 Mustang.

I’m a little disappointed the all new Mustang looks 98% like the old one..

I do like it though.

If you look at them side by side they're actually quite different. Doesn't look like a single reused panel between the two.

Definitely a strong evolution rather than a revolution in the design, but it's still an all new car. It just keeps a familiar and recognisable shape.

When I first saw it I thought it looked too similar too but when I saw two images side by side, I could clearly see a lot more differences than similarities.

Absolutely. New Mustang Supercar looks great.

Though not really a fan of the eco boost model, the GT looks much better.

Restricting my comments to the design of the front and grille area of the next Gen 3 Mustang:

I consider the current road model to be superior,
and I consider the current racing model to look a lot better.

The GT3 grille looks more like a Camaro than a Mustang. :o

Is it really going to have the extra intakes on the front air dam or will they be blanked off? Can’t really tell in the CGI images.  Also I take the functioning heat extractor will be allowed or again it is a blank cosmetic?

How will a 4-door body shape fit over the Gen3 chassis?

Bit hard to compare a real car with pictures.. I'll wait for the real thing before I make me mind up..

Also the grey road car above this the EcoBoost front, the V8 has a different front bar (God knows why they need 2!).. I think I like the V8 front bar better. Not sure why they modeled the Gen3 car off the Ecoboost front & not the V8 one?
