J Mays Talks Automotive Design
J Mays sat down with AutoFieldGuide for a recent article in their magazine to discuss automotive design and what it is going to look like in the future.
There are brief mentions of the 2015 Mustang redesign and the article clearly points to a further expansion of Ford’s vehicle portfolio to a global platform. From the article:
The muscle car could only happen in the U.S. because we’re the only ones crazy enough to stuff a V8 into the smallest possible car and scare the hell out of mothers everywhere.” Although it is likely that as the 2014 50th-anniversary Mustang takes shape it will probably be something that isn’t like the first—a car based on the Ford Falcon, a small car that got performance stuffing—but something that has an American context but global sophistication.
The 2015 Mustang is making Mustang owners every where nervous. The 2005 Mustang redesign can not even come close to the amount of uneasy that us enthusiasts are feeling, as at least the 2005 redesign was known to be going down a retro design path, meaning that it would still look similar to the iconic Mustang design we have grown to know. At least we know J Mays isn’t taking this lightly.
The 2015 Mustang is anyone’s guess. That is both exciting and terrifying. Make sure to read the article over at AutoFieldGuide.
