2011 Ford Mustang spied
What we can only assume to be a 2011 Ford Mustang power train mule has been spotted testing in southern California. Despite the rear end that looks like the 2005 model, the Mustang was wearing a front end from a 2010 car. Those fenders and hood also featured plenty of ventilation openings that led us to believe that this pony car is powered by something special.
It is unknown whether this is the new 5.0 Liter Coyote V8 or some other sort of Shelby or modern day BOSS muscle car. One thing is for certain, the rumble that was coming from this test car’s tailpipes was apparently unlike anything that came out of a recent Mustang. The rumble was far deeper and much louder than any current Mustang GT. Either way, this blue oval badged performance machine will be an injection of excitement for both pony car and muscle car fans around the world.
With the domestic competition coming out with models like the Dodge Challenger SRT-8 and Chevrolet Camaro Z28, Ford is in desperate need of filling the gap between their base V8 and the ultra exotic Shelby GT500 in order to sell a high output pony car that consumers can actually afford.
