Interesting thread.

The Saleen hands down IMO. Can't stand the new GT front end

Saleen takes my vote. The new 2013 front end just doesn't look right. But thats just my opinion

Very good match-up...

I've generally thought the 2010+ Saleen styling was an excellent update, front and rear.

Saleen is unique and everyone cant go to any Ford dealership lot and drive off in one.

I'm not really a fan of either . . . I prefer the look of the Roush to the Saleen and over the 2013.

Saleen front with 13's lights.

But if I had to pick one or the other I would go with the Saleen. I always like that look.

The more I look at the front end of the 13, the less I like it. 10-12 FTW!

I'd be fine with the '10-'12 front end, but I wouldn't mind seeing the Saleen front fascia on the '13-'14 Mustang.

Saleen all the way. The 2013 front end reminds me of a skyline and that's just not right

Saleen voter here too. Saleen looks meaner.

Like i said in the other thread, I think the current front + '13 rear lights would have been the best IMO

Saleen,I just got those same rockers and 3dcarbon rear skirt so I can match body
color. Hate that black plastic,at least they got that right for 2013.

I said it when it first came out- the saleen is and will be one of the best looking S197s ever.

2013 GT500 a close second. 2013 Boss, GT & V6 are well done, but not my first choice.

+1 on this. So glad that black plastic is gone. It looked so weird.
