The SEMA show in Las Vegas is keyed-up for starting next Tuesday, and already, the list of hot-shot Ford Mustang specimens has grown long.  One special one-off we took note of was the “Bad Penny” Mustang, produced by Classic Design Concepts (CDC).  This deep black and copper-accented pony car has a heavy arsenal of performance add-ons to bolster the wow factor, and of course, is not short on style in the slightest.  The CDC crew sought to come up with a classy way up wrapping up almost crass & rowdy performance…and they’ve done more.

One of the better 2015 Ford Mustang realistic renderings

We have all seen plenty of what is to be the next Ford Mustang in several artistic sketches and renderings.  Up until now, most have seemed to be far-fetched, edgy, and a little too “bought in” to the Evos concept debuted some time ago.  This one, by Josiah LaColla, seems to show some of the more realistic and tastefully applied changes we’re rumored to see in the 2015 Mustang.

Check in with Europe’s true Ford Mustang Man

This next (video) chapter in the Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary story is definitely a cool one…and it’s from a true enthusiast from across the pond, as well as the Rhine.  Take a moment to breeze through this video feature, and you’ll quickly see that Ralf Wurm is likely one of the biggest fans of the Mustang in Europe; and maybe the world.  With over 30 years of exposure and daily 12-14 hour immersion with our favorite pony car, he’s definitely got a leg up on pretty much the 95th percentile when it comes to true fanaticism about the Mustang.

The video following shows just how deeply genuine Ralf’s passion truly is, how he helps others come to the hobby, and provides us with a peek at his favorite Mustang–a 1969 Shelby GT500 he’s personally restored in entirety.

Trace the Ford Mustang lifespan from concept to Production

There is a lot of intel floating about right now about the forthcoming Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary, and it’s got everyone stepping back to reflect upon just how it is the pony car made it to where it has arrived, to date.  Between artists’ renderings, captivating spy shots, CGI enhancements, and the sort, no one is short-changed when it comes to imaginary speculation about what the next chapter of the Mustang shall bring in the 2014 and 2015 model years.

This time around, we’re happy to pass along a series of design concepts (sketches) which Ford kicked around the sandbox before eventually pinning the right tail on the donkey.  From the Mustang I sports car concept of 1962, to the design of 50 years later, this piece straight from ford definitely gives a solid kick towards what has been and what could be…you just have to sift through the finer details. ;)

Upcoming Ford Mustang rendered from latest spy shots

Remember those spy shots of the 2014 Ford Mustang that floated around the web last week?  Yeah, they didn’t really show too much more than we had already expected, but what’s cool about what we’ve scooped up this week, is that the team over at CarBuzz has taken those same images and refactored them in a totally slick “what if” rendering.
