Disclaimer: I've had a lot of different era Mustangs, Love 'em, so I am biased. This is the "Evos" concept car that the new Mustang is alleged to be based on.

Rumor has it that the re-design is set for 2015.


From a WSJ article:





Ford has been hinting that the next Mustang will not have a retro design such as the 2005 through 2013 versions have had. Hints keep coming that the next version of America’s beloved pony car will be a complete departure with a fresh design and modernized chassis with independent rear suspension. In the past, we’ve seen a Ford concept vehicle called the EVOS. According to some people who claim to have seen the 2015 Mustang, it looks a lot like the EVOS.
There is also speculation that the next generation will get Fords EcoBoost engine technology, which would honestly be no surprise as a replacement for the base V6. However, I simply don’t see the 5.0 V-8 being done away with in the high-end GT models. The 2015 is also said to look more like the Ford Fusion. As a big fan of the Mustang, I can only hope none of the current designers had anything to do with the dreadful Mustang II. I hope Ford gets it right, ominous rumors claim the vehicle is being called the Mustang III inside Ford.

Way to similar. I like the new Ford design but not as a mustang. Should have called it something different and continued the mustang looking like a mustang. They tried a similar thing in the late 70's early 80's, look what happened then.

I agree it shouldn't be called a Mustang. I do like most of it. I don't like the rear of the car... needs to flow better...

I don't know. I'm not a Furd fan but 665 hp in a Mustang seems pretty muscular to me.
Looks aren't everything but it helps. A lot of them are starting to look like worn out door stops.

You'll have to take that up with the DOT and EPA.

Aint no such critter as an "American" car anymore.

We just found out that our GMC Acadia has a Ford transmission designed in Japan by Mazda.

I ain't making that up.

Outsourcing at it's best/worst.

The wiring harnesses in Jeeps, many Chevy's and Fords, and others are made in Mexico.
My Chevy Avalanche was built in Guanajuato Mexico. Wranglers were built in Canada.
