It's not structurally bad styling.
Lose the klingon ridges and a good light refresh would fix it.
What bothers me is what I noticed today... the rocker panels... the
high panel seam behind the door... ugly. The fender makes a horizontal
seam with the rocker. Again ugly. But it's wierd, under the rocker
there's a black rocker panel trim piece. I have to see the car in
person to figure out what's going on there... but really the seams just
are badly arranged. Could be a safety oriented trade off.
I'm going to keep my fingers crossed, hoping the folks who can do
something about the perceived problems as voiced all across the InterWeb
are paying attention and will act. All the physical examples we have
seen so far were pretty much hand-made; plenty of time before production
I also keep reminding myself that the designers and deciders weren't
thinking of the Hooked-On-Mustang crowd: they need a much bigger group
to become interested. In the meantime I'm not all that offended by a
plump BMW with Ford technology and prices.
