The 50th Anniversary Ford Mustang Design “Being Locked Down”
J. Mays, the design chief for Ford Motor Company, is locking down the 50th anniversary design for the 2014 Ford Mustang. He says that it will still look all Mustang but that they won’t follow the retro road like the “retro inspired” 2005 and 2010 designs.
It looks like the new design will be a huge overhaul and may appeal to a new group of buyers as it gets a fresh face. This is a very anticipated redesign for us Mustang enthusiasts and this date will be a huge date in Ford’s history as it is a redesign to celebrate 50 consecutive years on the road!
“The challenge or the opportunity for 2014 with a 50th anniversary car is to not just look back over your shoulder, but to try to win all of the Mustang faithful yet bring the brand forward as well,” he says.
“It has to look like a Mustang. But you go down a list of things that might or might not be necessary to make the car look like a Mustang.”
Ford did not disappoint with the design of 2010, so here’s to a new design and to many more years on the road! Can’t wait to see what this “locked down” design will be! Stay tuned…
