Latest ford mustang-based concept?

Anyone seen this yet? I think I might consider it as a family car if it really does come out. 400 hp grocery getter. Kind of makes me think that this is what the ford 500 should have been in the first place.

Ford reveals Mustang-based concept - CNN.com

They aren't actually calling this one a Mustang. It's just based off the Mustang.

Re: Latest ford mustang-based concept?

Why? It won't be called a mustang. It is just based off the mustang...of which, after reading the article and looking at the pic...the only base is the "fast back", the 5.0, and article title. Other than that, I don't see anything mustang based.

More pics...When they "un-concept" it, I think it will look good...specially if they keep the low profile shaved roof look.

Re: Latest ford mustang-based concept?

I agree. The production version may be pretty bad if they get rid of some of the gay stuff. The overall lines of the car are nice, they just really need to do something about the front and rear bumpers.

Re: Latest ford mustang-based concept?

I just looked at the aricle quickly, if they had been planning to make a 4 door mustang that would have been the death of the mustang.

Re: Latest ford mustang-based concept?

Yeah, but once they finish it, as long as the lines stay the same, and they get rid of the space ship front and rear and dumb it down like they do with all concepts when they go into production, I think it will turn into a nice car. The lines are great to me. The front and rear are strictly a result of it being a concept...

I hope they want to shorten the wheelbase to like 3/4 what it is now unless they want a limo instead of a car.

With its six-speed manual gearbox, low roof-line and massive 22-inch wheels, the design is targeted at driving enthusiasts looking for a bold design but who can't fit the family in a two-door coupe.


GAH-HETOOOOOOOO

Re: Latest ford mustang-based concept?

We'll be needing a 4 door in the next few years I'm sure, if this turns out right it might actually be something to look into. So far the only thing catching my eye is the Mazda Millennia S or the Nissan lineup.

Re: Latest ford mustang-based concept?

I say they bring back the Galaxy 500's or the Cobra Jet Torino. I'm surprised with all the 300C/Charger hype, Ford hasn't responded by bringing back a heavyweight.

They did...they just called it the GT500 instead.
