We've all seen the new Mustang design and have made our judgements. This thread questions how the factory styling will change from year to year, how different special editions/Cobras will look, and even questions the successor to the 2005 Mustang. If you look at the last 6 years of Mustang, the year-to-year styling changes were very minimal. Everything pretty much stayed the same except smoked headlights and enlarged scoops. Furthermore, the Cobra and special editions were very similar to all Mustangs. So, for the 2005 generation, do you think the car we see now will be virtually identical for the next 5 years, or will the year-to-year changes be more significant than the last generation? Do you think the Cobra and special editions will be more unique than previous generations, or will they consist of different bumper covers/badging again? Finally, I understand the 2005 hasn't even been released, but do you think the 2010? sucessor will be an alteration of this generation (as the 1999 model was to the 1994), or will it take an entirely new direction? Keep in mind, I understand performance is the major difference between a Cobra and a GT, etc. and that aftermarket kits could change styling. But, we're talking visible differences and factory here. I think there will be more significant changes all around. From a production standpoint, the standard models won't change too much. But, after a couple years, I think scoops or more defined lines might appear on the hood/sides, and lights will probably change. As for the special models and Cobra, I think they will be more distinguishable this time around. Maybe they'll have functional side/hood scoops, different front/grille, rear/exhaust, quarter window, and lights. As for the 2010? design, I think it will probably be an alteration of the 2005 car with a modern twist.
