Ford gears up for the Mustang 50th Anniversary

Earlier this afternoon, Ford Motor Company announced 50 companies will initially market & sell jackets, shirts, watches, game machines, and much more to assist in the commemoration of the Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary celebration.  The new, trendy 50th Anniversary logo was designed by Michael Thompson, demonstrating the signature galloping pony layered over the text “50 YEARS”.  Too awesome!  Oh, and guess what–the StangNet crew will also soon have an online store so you can get your paws on these 50th Anniversary goodies.

Ford also plans to keep teasing out more specific commemorative wares over the coming months, as part of a year-long celebration which was kicked off at the 2013 New York Auto Show.  For those who don’t follow the details of the legendary Mustang, it’s going to turn 50, officially, on April 17, 2014.  Mark your calendars now!

2015 Ford Mustang clay model suppositioning

Yes, we know they are likely yesterday’s Ford Mustang renderings discarded, but they are still something to take note of when focusing on where the 2015 Mustang could be and also where everyone is claiming it to be.  The buzz over at Mustang6G seems to point toward the Aston Martin nose and fastback posterior being the focal point of the 50th Anniversary Mustang design.

The photographs depict nothing necessarily new or unexpected from what we’ve all already seen to date, but the interesting part is, more and more intel keeps leaking/leading toward the same conclusion, and no one is really refuting it as blasphemy.  Guess that doesn’t mean anything, particularly, as it’s one thing for sure, that Ford Motor Company knows how to keep a surprise hidden in their trunk.

So until we reach the advent of the 2015 Mustang model year, we all have to keep the nail biting up, and the rumor mill a’ churning…

Anticipated Ford Mustang to be 2014 1/2 model

It seems like everyone and their offspring has some sort of conjecture surrounding the 50th Anniversary Edition of the Ford Mustang, right?  Well, who wouldn’t?  This is likely one of the most exciting domestic automotive events which will transpire in the lifetime of most.  What other successfully (note: we said successfully) branded cars, to date, have ever made it 50 years without a single lapse in production?  Few, if but a handful.  The 2014 1/2 or the 2015 Ford Mustang is slated to be the most expected and exciting rendition yet.

2015 Ford Mustang perhaps spied again

It looks like what could be the 2015 Mustang has been caught “on film” yet again, Ford Mustang fans.  As we sit on the eve of the 50th Anniversary rendition of what’s to be a complete redesign, Ford seems to be teasing out more details on what we could expect in the next flavor of Mustang.  Is more of the Euro-flavored Evos concept making its way to fruition here?  Will the next spy shot(s) include a confirmation shot of the expected independent rear suspension we have all been hearing about?

2015 Ford Mustang to get IRS? Spy shots say maybe!

Given the fact the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang is upcoming, everyone is eyed-wide, checking to see what the next rendition of the Mustang is going to look like and what’s going to be underhood as well as underneath. From what appears to be a recent test mule for the 2015 Mustang, spy shots are indicating one major change is a possibility it will have independent rear suspension (IRS). The Mustang has been a solid, straight-axle car forever and seeing this test mule out on the prowl with new underpinnings is quite intriguing, indeed.

2015 Mustang speculated and rendered…again

It’s getting closer, Ford Mustang fans.  The time when we finally find out if Ford will truly ditch the retrograde look on the 2015 Mustang and lean toward a more Euro, chic look is inching nearer by the day.  The 50th Anniversary of the Mustang, in the 2015 model year, is going to be a seriously awesome event.  Very few cars on the motorways can raise notice for being in contiguous production for 50 years; that’s a feat, no matter how it’s sliced.  What we do know presently, is that Ford has buzzed the 2015 Mustang is going to be a “world car”–perhaps set at capitalizing further upon a more global scene…or maybe taking design and styling cues from world-class automobiles from today?  Hard to surmise for sure.

The recent Ford Evos concept was said to be foretelling of the 2015 Mustang future.  While nothing concrete has confirmed this fact, we don’t think it’s any coincidence Ford is teasing out ideas to gauge what the marketplace could or would be willing to tolerate in a complete Mustang platform redesign.

Keep reading to see what InsideLine has to say on the “what could be” related to the forthcoming 2015 Mustang.

2015 Ford Mustang redesign says ‘no’ to retro look

What was everyone excited about in 2005, in the world of Ford Mustang?  Oh yeah, the ditching of the SN95 platform and the advent of the S197 platform–a totally retro throwback to the classic Mustang era…with a modern twist.  That was nearly a decade ago, folks, and we all know that Ford isn’t going to sit on a warm egg forever.  Pretty much every notable media source, including Inside Line, is in agreement that the 50th Anniversary Ford Mustang is going to finally ditch the retro look.  So, while the neo-classical montage might take a trip to the dump, what we have to look forward to is a teasing of concept let loose from the advent of the 2005 Mustang, the 2010 Mustang, and nudges of aftermarket cues ever since the bread crumbs started to fall, leading up past the 40th–and now the 50th Anniversary.

So just what do we have to expect in year 50?  We’d say a global platform.  A non-retro look.  A Ford Mustang that sets a new trend in the aftermarket.  A pony car that not only exudes performance, but also efficiency to make other makes quite envious (as if not already accomplished)…

Keep reading the IL clip to get more on their take.  All we know is, we’ve been saving our pennies for a glimpse at one of these; we might even take one home. ;)
