    You right man. I didn’t think about the Tesla cars.

    The range first has to go up a lot & the price has to come down a lot in order for that to be common. We have a ways to go.

    I like my 2015 more and I personally don't like the digital cluster. None of the upgrades on 2018 interest me enough to trade in. I doubt it handles better than my GT with Cortex Racing coilovers and BMR suspension.

    The ONLY S550 I like is the GT350. The nose/front end on the Shelby is proportionate to the rest.

    Not all of them. The GT350s are light years beyond the rest of the S550 line in the looks department. But yeah, in general, the S550 is an ugly ass car. It takes the right color and wheel combo to make it look halfway decent.

    Can't wait for the newer, smaller, lighter Mustang II!

    Guilty. Guess I’m a lone wolf in thinking the S197 I (05-09) is the best looking modern Mustang. Call me crazy but I wouldn’t trade my lowly 3V GT for any S550 or a Trinity. Now if it was a KR, maybe. But I agree the GT350R is one aggressive looking car and so is the Trinity. I bet that Predator will meet our expectations and surpass the Trinity’s performance.

    Hideous. Hoping the GT500 fixes that nose, it is just awful. The rest of the car is fine.

    I’m impressed. It’s not very common for them to have a supercharged model out the same MY of an update. Well compared to previous models. Plus I heard they weren’t going to have a supercharged model for 18, might have been referring to the Stage 3 model. It’s impressive they’re just 17hp away from the 17 P-51. That 2650 with DI is going to be a deadly combination.

    I'm usually not a Roush fan, especially with the 2015-2017 cars, but the JackHammer doesn't look all that bad. And that's considering I already don't like the '18+ car.

    So a 710hp JackHammer with tire only should be good for a 10.6 or so, if the '15-17 cars were any indication.

    & cost what, $65k+? I think I'd rather have a ZL1 for that price.

    You don't think it's a little plain? Maybe just me, but it's not a very edgy front end.

    The 18s are nice but my 2012 still puts a smile on my face everyday time I drive it

    The only problem I have with the front end of the 18+ is that they combined the fog light and the turn signal which causes a triangle on the lower part of the front fascia, change that and it changes the whole look.
    I love the back end with the new taillights since they remind me of a 67-68 tailight and with the roofline being what it is it looks like a 67 from the back. I also love the Performance Pack 2, hopefully it beats the 1le.
