Cool Re: 2018 ........refreshed mustang S550

Reported mustang 6 g.com........."The 2018 Mustang has been out testing in full force and we just caught our clearest glimpse yet of a prototype sporting a quad exhaust system — something we’ve seen before on mules and prototypes but never with this level of detail.

This convertible S550 prototype bears the visible signs of an optional active, quad-tip exhaust system which we expect to see in the refreshed 2018 Mustang, as the standard lineup will receive additional features and aesthetic changes that benefit from the trickle-down from the Shelby GT350.
Similarly, a closer to production-spec rear valence is seen on the prototype which also takes influences from its big brother Shelby.
We expect the mid-cycle refresh to introduce a revised port fuel injection and direct injection Coyote engine with a modest power increase, new 10R80 ten-speed automatic transmission and the optional quad-tip active exhaust system worn by this prototype, which clearly shows a different muffler design than the 2015-17 Mustangs."

AUTO BLOG.........Joel Stocksdale
Have you ever looked at the front of the new Mustang and thought, "You know, I probably shouldn't give that car bad news like 'The rebels escaped.' " Well, if so, you're not crazy (at least not completely), because apparently the nose of the 2018 Mustang was inspired by the Galactic Rebellion's arch nemesis, Darth Vader. This is according to Ford's design manager, Melvin Betancourt, who said:

"When we were designing the new 2018 Mustang, the team wanted to make the new model look more aggressive, and one place where we found inspiration was one of the most famous screenplay villains of all time. The angled nostrils and contours of Darth Vader's mask became the inspiration for the Mustang's new fog lamp scoops and front-end shape."Darth Vader

For comparison, Ford provided us with images of both a design drawing of the car, as well as that of the infamous Sith lord. You can make your own decision whether Ford was actually successful in emulating Vader, but regardless, it's a fun little fact about the development of the Mustang. We would say that this would be a good excuse for, say, Chevrolet to take inspiration from a Star Wars hero for the next Camaro's design, but we're not sure Mark Hamill's face would translate well to a car.
