TopSpeed Rendering: 2015 Ford Mustang

Ford Mustang

It has been rumored for quite some time now that the future generation Ford Mustang will drop its usual retro look and will adopt an exterior design that is "more technical, more modern" and inspired by the Ford Evos concept unveiled last fall at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show. This decision was made in order to transform the muscle car into a model fit to go global.

The future model will still look like a Mustang and will keep its familiar shark-nosed grille and round headlights, but it will be the "most European-friendly version of the coupe ever."

A few changes will also be made under the hood. While the 2015 Mustang will keep its usual rear-wheel-drive configuration, it is expected to also get an independent rear suspension. The top version will keep the usual V8 engines, but the base models will get a twin-turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder engine that will deliver about 300 HP.

The sixth generation Ford Mustang will be unveiled in 2014 in order to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Mustang line.

looks more like a mondeo coupe

I really like the exterior design of this car as the tires exactly fits the platform. It also truly has a beautiful color.

Did Ford not learn from the Mustang 2? FOUR CYLINDER ENGINES DON’T WORK OF MUSCLES!

Looks a bit like an effete Aston Martin. Times are changing, though, and I suppose the trend in muscle car design leans more towards the lithe ballerina instead of the brutish body builder.

That or they decided to throw in the towel when Camaros began outselling Mustangs and decided to appeal to a different audience.

This car is fitting for the comeback of the new Ford Probe GT or the Fusion Coupe GT, but I can only hope this is not (or even close to) the next Mustang GT. I really like some of the European designs for some nameplates, but Mustang should be ALL American in design and build. I’ll await something official from Ford, but this is very UNimpressive for a Mustang and I will not buy it to park in my garage next to my 1964 1/2 Mustang like I have been planning.
