2015 Mustang Rumors: The Average Dude Will Know It’s A Mustang
I’m glad we got that 2013 Mustang refresh out of the way. Now we can move on to more important stuff, like what the hell Ford is going to do with the 2015 Mustang. The one that will be a global design in order to reach the deep pockets of the Europeans (sorry Greece and Italy). Well it hasn’t even been a month since the 2013 was revealed and we have our first set of rumors from our 2015 Mustang forum. This guy sounds legit and it’s not just because I found it on the internet either. Check it out:
Guys, I can’t get into specifics but I know that everyone will be pleasantly surprised by the looks of the next Mustang. How do I know? I’m a component supplier on the current and 2015 model and let me tell you the car will definitely have a contemporary, modern look to it-much more than the 2005-2013 models have now. There will be (limited) retro cues–nothing too tacky, just enough to tell the average dude that it is indeed a Mustang. The car is going slightly upmarket in style and quality to compete with BMW/Audi/Nissan. Don’t worry though, the boys in Dearborn have not taken their eye off the ball (read Camaro & Challenger). Look out Chevy and Dodge, come 2015, the King will return….
He goes on to make this reply to another member in the forum:
What I can tell you is the MY2015 model will have both an edgy and curvy look to it–think a modern day 99-04 with a little Aston Martin DBS and Nissan 370Z in the rear three quarter view. Both are muscular, curvy and edgy. Fit and finish will be close to or on par with the Audi S5. The roof line will be lower to accommodate a much sleeker rake to the windshield. The rear fenders are flared to give that wide stance and “don’t f$&k with me” look from the rear. The rear taillight treatment will look similar to the 99-04 in terms of edginess. The halo look may return but depends on customer feedback–they may go with LEDS instead. Don’t forget, Ford plans to export this model to both Europe and China–it will be a global vehicle. This means an independent rear suspension with world class handling and performance.
He seems to be pretty confident regarding the Independent Rear Suspension, which if true will make a lot of Mustang owners incredibly happy and end the endless jokes from import fan boys that have been jacking off.. I mean up their IRS setups for years now.
He points out that there will be references to the classic Mustang look which will lead the average person, or dude as he puts it, to easily recognize the car as a Ford Mustang.
So China, are you ready for the Mustang? Maybe if you have to drive it you’ll fix the transmissions you are making for them.
