Sure hope so. And a Bullitt would be nice too.

Or (RE: Mach) 2019, or 2020 . .

There’s also speculation around Ford offering a Mach 1 model around late 2019, early 2020.
http://www.stangtv.com/news/rumor-fa...ch-1-for-2018/

And this rumor (below) would be a disappointment (and shock) if the Mach was the flagship . . .

Rumors suggest the Mach 1 could serve as the new flagship Mustang, potentially slotting above the GT350, though specific details surrounding the upcoming variant remain unclear.

It'll be interesting to see how Ford treats the iconic Mach 1 shaker. I can't envision how the shaker as we know it now will flow with the design of the S550. Perhaps some type of redesign is warranted while still evoking that look. I don't see retro working very well.

Wouldn't necessarily need a Shaker . . . I'd like to see some naca/nasa ducts on the hood a la Boss 351 and 71-73 Machs . . .

Hmmm...never thought of that. I can see NACA ducts being nicely integrated with the design. I bet the hood like that would be a popular conversion for non-Mach 1's also.

10 spd auto would not be very entertaining with paddle shifters. That's alot of shifting.

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume the 10spd will not use all the gears all the time. This is clearly an issue with the 9spds on the market, all getting universal hate. I would think the computer will choose between one gearset and the other, depending on needs and conditions.

Add me to the haters. My wife's 2014 Cherokee has a 9spd with the select shift. I like that you physically move the auto shifter up or down to shift (our Mustangs should have had this rather than a stupid button) but I hated the continual shifting. We just keep it on auto all the time.

Maybe you're right and it will skip gears to keep it entertaining and not a pain.

You will use all 10 gears and you WILL LIKE IT!

Or you'll have no gears.

Mustang Facelift Already in the Works



Less than two years after the rollout of the s550, we’ve learned that Ford is already revving up to introduce a new front fascia for the 2018 model year.

Read the rest on the Mustang Source homepage. >>

Looks like my prediction was correct! Had a feeling they would make changes to the front sooner than expected. Don't get me wrong it's a nice looking car, just the front end seemed rushed.

Thank God! The fugly Fusion front has to go. I was hoping it would happen sooner actually, for MY17. Dear Ford, this time, please please PLEASE make it look like a Mustang for **** sake!

Wish they'd keep the front end longer to **** people off more as sales continue to grow!

And we're already talking about the refresh here . .https://themustangsource.com/forums/...2018-a-538507/ . . . . I'll merge tomorrow . .

Hopefully it wont be as bad of a refresh as the focus, or the already spotted fusion.
The refreshed mustang need these headlights:


I still think the way Car and Driver render looked in the front was just a bit better then what the official car looks, maybe it was just the headlights tho.

I hope it has the same front end as the Mustang. Again.

Focus refresh is nice, imo. Can't wait for the RS!
