2015 Ford Mustang debut December 5th

What’s that? We don’t have to wait until March or April of next year to see the 2015 Mustang, or portions thereof? Color us happy!

That’s right–official Ford intel points to the official 2015 Mustang debut being set for December 5, 2013…mere days away!  Finally, everyone can put aside all of the total speculation, wishful renderings, and spy shots that don’t really show much more than a 5 year old’s crayon scribbles.

So what’s this mean?  It means that Ford is jumping the gun a little bit, by not delaying to make the official 2015 Mustang reveal at the New York International Auto Show, where the first Mustang made its entry 50 years ago.  The unveiling of the 2015 Mustang is also set to take place on 6 cities in 4 continents on 5Dec2013 (further testament to the Mustang evolving to a global platform).  And of course, the social media front will be completely lit with an official countdown, teasers, and suspense leading up to the official public announcement.

Sit tight, everyone; it’s going to be a fun next two weeks!

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.

How Carroll Shelby shaped the original Ford Mustang

In another documentary video release from Ford, in preparation for the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang, we get another glimpse into the brain trust behind the sporting-up of the original pony car.  The senior leadership (Lee Iacocca, et al) of Ford Motor Company put up the task to make something meager into a serious performance monster.  And as you had better know already, it was Carroll Shelby and his team who were tapped to get the job done.

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.

2015 Ford Mustang set to lose some weight

But wait, there’s more!  The latest idea everyone’s teasing around about the next Ford Mustang is that it’s going on a diet.  One which involves the pony car shedding an acclaimed 400+ pounds versus today’s model.  With the weight loss, as one might assume, will also come a slightly smaller posture, as Ford’s continuing to appease not just one market place…but the world.

And let’s be honest here; no one is excited to burn more fuel, unless the experience is really cool. ;)

Less overhang.  Less width.  Less trackage.  Less…wait what?  If Ford keeps this up, the ladies might not get too excited about the next round.

Keep reading to see what the folks over at Edmunds had to say about this latest slim & trim 2015 Mustang.  Some of us are excited.  Some are just waiting in the queue to see what the next bomb shell looks like.  Some of us just wish we could get our paws on the keys to a 50th Anniversary Ford product and grin the whole way home…
