Retro Looks to Leave New Ford Mustang? Huh? Say What? (Mic Check Part 1 of 2)

       Well, I have written quite a few Mustang blogs it seems. That's because the Mustang is just a nice damn car that contains a perfect blend of retro-futuristic styling. Today's Mustang blog is a little different however, it's about my slight dissatisfaction with the inspiration that they say will be infused into the next Mustang model, which according to sources will hit the market as a 2014 or 2015 model. The particular car, they say, of which the inspiration will be extracted from, is the 2011 Ford Evos concept. I have seen that concept  floating all around the internet and I'm not to excited about it. I have channeled that frustration into a preliminary, and experimentation-sketch of my own musings for a new Ford Mustang concept. Now, let me say something, there is a fine line that a manufacture must straddle when updating or re-issuing an update of a retro car. The goal is to bring in today's hi-techy design aesthetic, and merge it with the iconic cues of the previous design. And here, the hoped-for result is for  where you can see the blend of both styles, but still smell a defining whiff of the aroma of that yester-year design.

Proceed to the observations made below...



What do you see in pictures 1, and 2? In the first picture,1, the side view, though containing some nice sculpturistic lines, doesn't look "Mustang" enough in comparison to the second picture, 2. Therefore, what I have done below, is attempt to reinvigorate the real Mustang bloodline, while simultaneously upping the ante.

       If you look carefully above (observing the arrows), you can see two long curving lines that start out - with wide separation - by the front fender, and then in a swooping manner, converges at the rear wheel fender. Right here, a sumptious rump in the rear quarter panel is birthed, and gently dives down a bit over the rear wheel and then curves upward again, running into the tail lamps, which is followed tangentially by a spoiler profile. Also, checkout the lower arrows coming from the front wheel fender, and watch how it invisibly (I made it visible by highlighting it with red arrows) reaches into a sexy, near-derriere curvature into the lower part of the rear fascia (behind the rear wheel). See? You know me, I always try if possible, to put a little bit of the ladies into my automotive designs :)

Ok. Now sit back, relax, and enjoy the rest of the ride as we show you a ton of otherwise hot pictures of the Ford Evos concept, of which Ford will be drawing some of its inspiration for the new 2014/2015 Ford Mustang concept! You got your popcorn right? (lol)
