Is this the 2015 Ford Mustang? Close to it, at least that’s what a Ford insider told us recently. Set to be released about two years from now on its 50th anniversary, the 2015 Mustang will be much closer to a “world car” than any Mustang before it.
For one, it will be smaller in many ways. Most other markets prefer sports cars with a little less metal and a few more curves. That means a sleeker, less bulky Mustang that should weigh less and cheat the wind better. The Evos concept was a hint of that look, but we were assured that the current Mustang’s long hood/short deck proportions will remain along with several signature Mustang design cues like rear-quarter windows and triple-lens taillamps. A little bit of Ferrari on the side panels, a little bit of Aston Martin in the front, yes, we like it!
This, along with other great American sports cars, is a great target for personalization through vehicle wrap. Non permanent, you can have that carbon fiber roof or those racing stripes for a fraction of the cost of a paint job. Expect to see the official unveil of the 50th Anniversary Ford Mustang at the 2014 New York Auto Show.
