I really hope it never looks like that last photo. That has to be one of the most borring designs I have ever seen, looks just like a turtle.

What happened to the 2014.5?

I guess they thought it was a good idea to skip a full year?

Well the article states is either a 2015 or 2014 1/2 depending on who you ask. It can't ACTUALLY be a 1/2 since VINs don't allow for that, but I'm sure it will be marketed as such in April. As for skipping a year, the model year changes over around July these days, so they've been making 2014s for 3 months now.

"...and for the first time an independant rear suspension."

This author seems to have forgotten about the 1999-2004 SVT Cobra Mustangs... ;)

Unless he meant for the whole platform, not just the premium line.

Remember the Ford Probe, was to be the next gen Mustang at the time but Ford got alot of slack about it being front wheel drive so, i heard anyway. The Probe didn't do much for me then and still don't.

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

mustangredfront-970x0.jpg

mustangredback-625x625.jpg

Side window graphic is reinforced by spy shots of the interior. Lower rear valance and entire front end are dead-on confirmed by unmasked sections of prototypes. Taillight panel is very consistent with fuzzy-focus Ford promotional shots of artists working on the clay, and clinic participants have verified the louvered nature of the taillights themselves.

Looks like a Mustang AND fits with Ford's corporate design ethic. I like it. :)

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.
