I liked and do still like the 18+ front but the s650 front in GT PP/DH form is much more beefy and aggressive in comparison imo

The M1 with HP is very good looking though

I can't wait to see the mods that come out for the front fascia. Especially on the dark horse since the gray plastic comes up to the headlight.

Aftermarket grille makers will make a fortune on the S650 IMO.

Not going to lie, the s650 looks more mustang than the 18+ refresh.
Like my Mach better. In terms of front ends….GT350 and Mach 1 tied for first, 2015-17 GT second, S650 third and last but still really nice …..18-23 GT. IMO the GT500 is really nice but seems just a bit overdone.

The only thing I don't really like about the S650 front end is the large black band at the bottom of the grille, it just seems a bit out of character. For other front ends, in no particular order, I like the '18 (no surprise), Mach 1, GT350 and GT500. Had the '18 refresh not changed the front from the 15-17, I would have kept my '14.

The comparison doesn't really line up. The 18 model has a much lower frontend, so matching the upper grille line gives a wrong impression how the car looks and that's why the roof line doesn't fit anymore.

Here's a quick better comparison, you can see that I tried to match splitter, roof and mirror position, so the merged images are pretty close in the same position. You easily see how much higher the S650 frontend sits. I never really liked the "droopy" face of the 18, that's why I really love the higher and more aggressive new look.

I noticed during the reveal that there aren't any fog lights on the GT's and up, what's up with that? That's always been a Mustang thing.

Agree. I think the base grille and the Dark Horse grille look better than the GT.

Not a fan of the deleted lower indicator etc lights, and not sure what to make of the taller, blunter and seemingly less aerodynamic front end.

Also seems to have a larger Windscreen glass area from the slightly raised roof and lowered belt-line / Firewall.
