2018 Ford Mustang GT Las Vegas Golden Knights
Ford is no stranger to auctioning one-off Mustangs for charity. The latest ‘Stang to get bestowed with the honor is a 2018 Mustang GT that’s been customized to wear the colors of the Las Vegas’ professional ice hockey team, the NHL’s Las Vegas Golden Knights. The one-off creation is up for bidding at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Sin City on September 29. All proceeds from the car’s sale will go directly to the Grant a Gift Autism Foundation.
John Cena’s 2017 Ford GT is Getting Passed Around Like a Dirty Diaper
The Ford GT once owned by WWE superstar John Cena is back up for sale. It’s the fourth time — maybe fifth? — that Cena’s Ford GT is on the market and the second time in the past month alone. The Liquid Blue Ford GT last hit the auction block during Monterey Car Week back on August 25. Barely a month later — seriously, it’s only September 24 — the supercar us now listed in Mecum’s auction next month.
1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1
The 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 was Ford Motor Company’s response to GM’s Chevrolet Camaro as the Pony Car war reached its peak. It was the meanest looking Mustang up to that point, humiliated the GT in sales to the point the latter got discontinued and could be optioned with the COPO-rivaling 7.0-liter Cobra Jet engine.
This Rendering of a Ford Mustang Raptor has Fast and Furious Written All Over It
X-Tomi Design has released another rendering, this time of a Ford Raptor wearing the face — and body — of a Ford Mustang. It’s not a vehicle you’ll probably see in the real world anytime soon, but it’s good to know that there’s a way to look at the Raptor if Ford decided to use the Mustang as the canvas. Don’t start getting any ideas, though. A Ford Raptor with the face of a Mustang is not a good idea. The rendering itself is jarring; imagine what it could look like if it turned into a real model. Can’t picture it? We can’t blame you.

According to the tuner, the package can turn the Mustang into a completely different animal, one that can produce a staggering 710 horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque - figures that make it the most powerful Mustang program that Roush Performance has developed.
The Ford Mustang is the Last Car Standing as Ford Cancels Chinese-Built Focus Active Over Trump’s Auto Tariffs
Trump vs. Jinping is not turning out well for importers in the U.S. The latest car manufacturer to bear this brunt is the Blue Oval. Ford has canceled its plan to sell the China-built Focus Active in the States, thanks to the high-tax imposition on products imported from China. The result of this is that the Focus nameplate will become extinct by the end of next year Stateside. This makes the Mustang the last car standing in the company’s line-up.
Reports Now Say No Manual Transmission for 2019 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500
The Mustang isn’t exactly known for cutting-edge, innovative technology. Hell, Ford’s most famous performance car just got independent rear suspension back in 2015 with its sixth generation. Now, it’s looking like the latest Shelby GT500 might take another step into the future by axing the manual transmission option outright.

2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition
As if the Ford GT isn’t awesome enough in its own right, Ford is adding to the supercar’s appeal with the launch of a new Heritage Edition showcase, one where the GT gets dressed up in the iconic light blue and orange Gulf Oil livery. The new Heritage Edition model is a fitting follow-up to the red Ford GT Heritage Edition that Ford introduced earlier this month. The Gulf Oil livery isn’t the only unique feature of this new special edition GT; it also comes with a number of exclusive touches, all added to ensure that this special edition model upholds the exclusivity attached to the Gulf Oil livery.
The Next-Gen Ford Mustang Comes in 2021; May Offer AWD
The next-generation Ford Mustang is expected to arrive in 2021 with a number of important changes, the most important of which is Ford’s plan to use one of its five new modular architectures to underpin the muscle car. The planned change means that the current Mustang’s exclusive rear-wheel-drive platform could be a thing of the past once the next-generation model rolls in.
Everything We Know about the 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
While the last Shelby GT500 was a proper brute, the anticipation for the 2019 Mustang Shelby GT500 has become ever so stronger thanks to its biggest competitors. Ever since Dodge unveiled that bonkers Challenger Hellcat and Chevy showcased the Camaro ZL1, it was clear that the new Shelby GT500 will have to compete with them. An extremely powerful engine and the best possible tech that Ford has in its arsenal will end up complementing its sexy muscle car body.
While we are still months away from the 2019 Shelby GT500 unveiling, which will probably happen at the NAIAS in January, I found several interesting facts about the upcoming car to keep us more than entertained and excited about its upcoming reveal. So, without further ado, this is what we know about the new GT500 so far.
Leaked Document: Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Will Have 710HP; Weigh 4,200 Lbs
A leaked product sheet for the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 reveals that the mighty muscle car will have a whopping output of 720 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. In addition to the uptick in power, the product sheet also shows that the Shelby GT500 will 4,225 pounds, almost 300 hundred pounds heavier than its predecessor. The document looks skeptical, so even with these headline-grabbing numbers, it’s hard to trust what it says without any word from Ford itself.
Mustang Hooners In San Francisco Get Arrested For Being Rude And Stupid
Thousands of miles away from Connecticut, a group of reckless and rude drivers came face-to-face with the long arm of the law after intentionally stopping traffic on the San Francisco Bay Bridge just so they could hoon and make donuts with their Ford Mustangs and Toyota Supras. It’s unclear exactly what their intentions are, but a good guess on their motives would involve words like “stupidity, carelessness, and all-around douchebaggery.”
Little Red, the Long Lost Mustang Shelby GT500, Has Been Found
Monterey Car Week is here, which means we’re getting deep into the collector car world. Coincidentally, it was recently announced that one of just two original Shelby GT500 prototype vehicles has surfaced, which, fully restored, could potentially pull down several million dollars at auction.

Ford Has A Kona Blue Mustang Bullitt That’s Going To Be Up For Raffle
The 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt is limited enough as it is, but an even more limited edition version from within its ranks is set to be raffled off this November. The model in question is a Mustang Bullitt that’s dressed up in a Kona Blue paint finish. It’s the only one of its kind in the world, and getting a chance to own one involves more luck than it does having deep pockets.
2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Steeda
After appearing at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the new Ford Mustang Bullitt, as well as the original (who left the U.S. first time ever for its stint at Goodwood) left a mark on the gearheads of the world. Particularly those in the U.S. No wonder that the tuning company Steeda, already well known for its Mustang projects, partnered with Galpin Auto Sports and McQueen Racing to deliver the most amazing Mustang Bullitt. This is the Ford Mustang Bullitt by Steeda - it can be a 500 horsepower N/A beast, an 800 horsepower Hellcat killer, or a track-worthy toy with a roll cage. Steeda offered a comprehensive tuning package for the Mustang Bullitt. However, it seems that it only added subtle exterior additions nearing the latest Mustang to its movie star grandfather more than Ford has ever done before.
2019 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet
The Mustang Cobra Jet is now known as Ford’s factory-built drag racer, but the "Cobra Jet" badge was actually created for a 7.0-liter V-8 engine back in 1968. This is also the year when the Blue Oval produced 50 lightweight Mustangs for the said engine and shipped six of them to Holman Moody and Bill Stroppe to be prepared for NHRA racing. Fifty years later and Ford is celebrating the event with a special-edition Cobra Jet model.
The first Mustang-based drag racer since 2016, this Cobra Jet comes with all the goodies you’d expect to find on such car. There’s a revised body that looks similar to the facelifted sixth-gen model, skinny wheels up front and fat tires to the rear, a competition-spec interior, and a massively supercharged V-8. Making things even better, it’s the quickest and most powerful Mustang that Ford has developed specifically for drag racing in history.

2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Steve McQueen Edition by Steeda
Noted Ford tuner Steeda is coming out with a special edition Mustang that’s named after Steve McQueen. Officially called the Steeda Mustang Bullitt Steve McQueen Edition, the tuned muscle car is based on the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt, a car that is teeming with exclusivity. But the Steeda Mustang Bullitt Steve McQueen Edition is on another level, and it’s all thanks to the collaboration involving Steeda, McQueen Racing, Galpin Auto Sports, and Chad McQueen, the only son of the iconic Hollywood megastar. Only 300 units of the Bullitt Steve McQueen Edition will be released per year, making it one of the most sought-after aftermarket Mustangs in the business today.

53 years after introducing the Mustang, Ford has reportedly put the finishing touches on the 10 millionth Mustang ever built. Multiple reports have indicated that a huge announcement is imminent, possibly alluding to the historic milestone.
