Let's hope they can actually get the wheel gap right from the factory and save us all a couple hundred bucks in lowering springs. I don't understand why it's so difficult for some manufacturers to get right; Porsche and BMW seem to be about the only two that can consistently get factory wheel gap correct.The DH looks liks it sitting about 3/4 an inch or so lower. Looks closer to the wheel gap my FPP springs have.
Likely ride height regulations. Its why the 2001 Bullitt and 2003 Mach1 are different heights. Regulations changed between their release, and the Mach1's front lip makes it easier to hit things then the Bullitt that had no lip.Let's hope they can actually get the wheel gap right from the factory and save us all a couple hundred bucks in lowering springs.

Regarding the comparison pics, I agree that the 15-17 S550 has more in common with the S650 than the 18+ cars. I was never a big fan of the 18+ cars, but I do like that the upper line through the door on the S550 is more pronounced than on the S650. I wish it were SLIGHTLY harder on the new car because in some shots it looks a little too slab sided for my taste. With that said, I like the Dark Horse front end--with the exception of the eye black and the fact that some elements are gloss black and some are matte. It just needs a little consistency, but I think the design of the front end is the best of the S650 fronts we've seen.
but then they'd have to change the molds to add 0.5-0.75 inch more lip to the creased section. Or recontour it so it doesn't look silly and out of proportion. Since when are they going to splash out when they can just recycle the S550 dies.Let's hope they can actually get the wheel gap right from the factory and save us all a couple hundred bucks in lowering springs.
Road and Track has some great pics of the VB GT.A great comparison of the DH Mustang to the current Mustang. I like how the look of the front on the DH looks longer and lower. The DH looks sleeker than previous pictures I have seen . So far , I think Motor Trend has the best pictures of the 2024 Mustang.
It's also about placement as this is the most effective location for heat extraction. I feel like if they tried to integrate it more they would have run into issues with clearance and would have had to create too much of a bulge down the center of the hood.I really wish they could've thought of a different hood vent on the S650. It looks generic to me. I'm not a huge fan of just cutting out a section and sticking a vent there, but I get that it's probably more cost effective than designing a different hood for the GT where the vent is more well integrated.
