In celebration of its 50th anniversary, an all-new Ford Mustang will go on sale in early 2014 as a 2015 model year car indicate recent reports. This will coincide with the timing of the original Mustang’s on sale date back in 1964.
Big things are reportedly brewing for the Mustang and its rumored to finally get an independent rear suspension. In addition, look for a smaller rear-drive platform that could help the Stang shed some weight, further transforming it from a muscle car to a true sports car. While still not a global car, look for Ford to further expand sales of the Mustang, with a model planned for right-hand drive countries like the UK, Australia and Japan.
As for the look, Ford chief designer J Mays has previously indicated it will be something new, and not just an evolution of the current retro-themed model.
Until then, look for an updated Mustang to bow next year as a 2013 model year car, with the 2013 Shelby GT500 reportedly getting 650-hp from a turbocharged V8.
