To change the topic a little... Even though we have no idea what Ford has planned for 2015 at this point, I do know one thing, I would LOVE to see a true fastback again.

Something else we should remember, sometimes concepts are just either a decoy or a thought into what could be (not should be).

Take a look at the link http://www.stangbangers.com/1964.htm the last pick is the ORIGINAL Mustang concept car. Released 2 to 3 years before the production car came to market.

http://www.supercars.net/cars/2409.html this one has specs, note the DISC front brakes and the drum rears with a 1.9L engine Neither were on the production vehicle.

My point is, until Ford says "this is the car we're going to call the mustang" it's all conjecture and guessing...

Ah yes Philip T. Clark's mid engine Mustang 1. At least the tri bar pony from that concept stuck.

After looking at this picture several times, I've decided that I DO like the car pictured, however I don't think this represents what Mustang enthusiasts expect with the next gen Mustang. Take the concept car and call it a Falcon or a Probe or whatever but not a Mustang. If you look at sports cars in general, say the Porsche 911, anyone slightly interested in cars knows a 911 when they see one, if it is a '70s model or a 2012. Each new 911 model is a continuation of the previous style. This concept drawing really doesn't look like a continuation of the current Mustang, it looks like a cross between an Aston and a Nissan Z with a running horse emblem on the grill. Ford should leave the new "global look" to the Taurus, Focus and Fusion and put the Mustang in a category of it's own. What should the next gen Mustang be? I have no idea, I'm not a car designer but this concept definitely isn't making my excitable parts excited.

And I agree with you 100%. I still feel that Ford should continue developing on the S197.

I was talking to a dealer the other day and he told me the 15's will drop the retro all together. So if you like the retro, get' em' while they they're hot.

This leads me to ask, how will Chevy and Dodge respond? Will they ditch retro too?

LOL The dealer told you that?!?!?! Ford tells the dealers nothing about what is coming out, much less about a design that is coming out 2 years from now!

I agree. The "classic" Mustang was a winner. The subsequent iterations up to the S197 never had the same appeal. The S197 has been a winner again. Ford's sales proved it. I see plenty of twenty-somethings drooling over my GT. So, I doubt the S197 lacks appeal to the younger generation. They are just paying off student loans rather than plunking the money down on an expensive sports car. The 911 still has the appeal even though it is very reminiscent of the original 911.

Like Porsche, Ford ought to evolve the Mustang, rather than go the old American car manufacturers route of the '50's and '60's where the body style is radically changed often. It didn't work back then, and I doubt it will work now.

A Jag is little more than a wannabe Aston Martin. I have a problem with the Mustang being a wannabe Jag. That's why I don't think this is all that close to the next gen Mustang. I have no problem with the Fusion looking like an Aston Martin though. Ford has done so well for the better part of the last ten years of really finding the essence of what the Mustang should look like. Now it's time to take the Porsche 911 design philosophy: If it ain't broke don't fix it.

I don't know, I talked to a Ford rep at the last big Ford show I went to and he said Ford is looking to go "European" in 2015 with most of its models.

Everytime I see that sig I lose my train of thought.


I fully expect the Mustang to go more Euro (especially after seeing the new Fusion). I know I won't like it if it does but thats life. I'll just build the hell out of my 09 and buy a used 2011-2012 GT maybe 5 years down the line for a DD.

I love it personally. I hope it looks just like the picture in the first post. Then again I don't care about staying with the tradition.

Staying with absolute tradition is one thing.
But that thing looks nothing like a Mustang to me.
Nowhere does that say American made pony or muscle car vehicle in it's looks.
Well, I take that back... the rear side window and its hips are the ONLY part that resemble a Mustang.


I think it's safe to say that if that by some chance ended up being the new Mustang, Ford COULD lose of **** ton of it's
faithful Mustang owners that traded in throughout the new model revamps. But it could catch on with the younger folks perhaps I guess.
To me it looks like an import. And if I wanted a car that looked like an import, I'd buy a friggin import.

Luckily for me. We have our dream Mustang and won't ever get rid of it!
(Though if we came upon a 1967 GT500 and could afford it we sure as heck would put it ride beside this one!)
