Show us cars that looked way better than the ones they replaced
At some point in its life cycle, each model will either be updated or replaced. Quite often, these updates aren’t very groundbreaking, as was the case with the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLC.
Other times, automakers completely revamp the styling in a dramatic and dramatic way. The new Corvette C8 is a prime example of such an improvement over its predecessor. Another example is a car like the 1979 Ford Mustang which pioneered the Fox body style.
Not only was it a bold move that broke away from the previous car, but it’s been a long-time fan favorite ever since it hit the scene. It’s not the only Mustang that completely broke the mold and started a new styling trend, either.

The 2005 Mustang was a retro-themed pony car and it looked nothing like the car it followed. This sports car marked a huge change and a bright future for the Mustang that continues today. It’s not just Ford that has pulled this off.
Almost everyone seemed to hate the styling of the original Porsche Panamera. This is no longer the case since the very first major update in 2017. Since then, it looks like the longer and more practical 911 brother that it is supposed to be.
Speaking of Porsche, the 911 997 also had a very positive impact on fans. Of course, part of that has to do with the fact that almost everyone hated the 996 with its “scrambled egg” headlights.
Maybe a car like the Maserati GranTurismo deserves some credit too. The magnificent grand tourer replaced the coupe, and the style of these two sports cars could not be very different. Plus, it’s clear to see the influence the design of the GranTurismo has had on the rest of the modern Maserati range.
So what are we missing? Which vehicles arrived on the scene and put the previous generation to shame when it came to styling? Let us know in the comments below.
