I suspect I'm completely alone in this but; I wish Ford would go back to the original 1964 concept and start again from there. It was a simple, light, fun car that appealed to both sexes - not the bloated, steroidal virility statement that it has since become.

You want a tin foil secretary's car that won't steer on anything other than hard, dry pavement?


One of my uncles had ine back in the day, it was garbage the way Dad tells it.

Around 1970 a friend of mine bought a 65 Mustang and, although I never actually drove it, I don't remember him having problems getting around corners and the body seemed to be made of sheet metal.
If anyone has one of these and thinks it's garbage, or is afraid they might be mistaken for a secretary, just dump it in my driveway.

As an owner of both a '67 hardtop and an '11 GT who's, y'know, actually familiar with both, I'll take your steroidal, bloated M3-baiting statement as a daily driver any day of the week.  There's simply no dynamic comparison between the two.

 

However, the old girl's been in the family since new and she is an aching beauty.  So as sweet and politely stated as your observations are, she's not getting dumped with anybody.  B)

 

The new car is supposed to drop some 150 kg, btw...

Peter, nobody's saying you're not entitled to your opinion.  And insofar as your comment applies to the car's mass, your point is undeniable.  Ford has wrought some genuine magic in the latest car with its 1650 kg and stick axle to make it the relative F-16 among the American pony car three (far and away the best driver of the four real Mustangs and Camaro I've owned, and I'll just leave the sad-sack Mustang II I was banished to as a teenager out of this), but that job would doubtless have been easier and more effective with less weight thrown about.

 

Looking at the car in a historical context, however, Road and Track had a reaction fairly typical of the day's motoring press at the Mustang's introduction. And they've gone from saying of the original car back in 1965,"...the present suspension is not suitable for any strenuous driving and the brakes are wholly inadequate for anything more serious than normal street use", to offering the current 300hp, 30mpg V6 car with handling package as a viable alternative to the "Toyota 86 or used Porsche Boxter" question.  So the current car is far more capable and really not a whole lot more complex in this era than the original car was in 1965.

For better or worse, this rendering appears to be the most correct one so far:

Looks like it's moving toward that Aston Martin (SP?) corporate front end treatment like most of their other cars out right now.

I see some similarities between the above and this concept (not sure if it has a name?) from 2008:

Maybe this one ^^^ should've existed three years ago and come between the current and future versions.

From what I've heard is that official photos will be released in the Nov/Dec time frame, so the Jan car mags can have them and the car shows will be scooped...it will be interesting to see if the on-sale date is April 17th, 2014 (50th anniversary).   Looking forward to seeing it in person eventually.
