The S650 will have zero competitors and therefore can allow itself to be the slightly updated S550 that it's going to be. Same platform, no AWD, no/minor structural changes...The more I see, the more it looks a whole lot like an s550 and in another leak, even s197. I would hope they aren’t out of ideas so badly as to go back s gen or two. Hopefully some of the leaks are not representative and the camo is responsible for s550 similarities.
so far, I’m afraid it looks like they are not really engineering much change to the platform and instead are using a lot of polyurethane to make it LOOK like structural elements have changed. But it appears to be just facade.
Really hoping Ford went much further than these leaks suggest.
This is the mustang after all. Not the Camaro, not some distant competitor. This is the American icon love around the world. It needs to not just be good enough. It needs to be great.
Expect a S550 with upgrated tech/interior and upgrated metal sheet. If you expect some heavy weight loss or other fundamental changes you're going to be disappointed.
