That looks pretty sweet. I could do without the slot in the hood, but overall it's just about perfect.

Useless slot. Put exhaust vents in the hood. The front borrows a bit from the 1/77 AM.

Lengthen the nose, deepen the the grill a bit vertically, deepen the side scallop, make the hips a bit more prominent yet and finish off with a tri-taillight treatment of some sort and voila, you're about 95% of the way to a 2015 Mustang right there, stylewise. Of course, this would ride on a fresher, lighter, slightly tighter RWD platform -- IRS of course -- and watch it take the world, not just the U.S., by storm.

I saw the Evos concept at the DC autoshow -- had to really push through a crowd -- and that only reinforced both what a great looking car it is in its own right and how readily that design language could be adopted to make the 2015 Mustang that would at once have enough heritage DNA to appeal to the old war horse market niche yet also appeal to a broader world market more interested in a fully 21st century Stang. I see potential win-win here.

I agree. Push the front wheels forward and keep the engine pushed back for better weight distribution and a more aggressive look and they have real winner on their hands.

The more I look at the Evos proboscis, the more I like it.
