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. ;)

Hope yet remains for a BOSS Ford Mustang return

2012_Ford_Mustang_Boss_302

We’ve got to keep the rumor mill crankin’, right?  We all saw and drooled over the Ford Racing BOSS 302R from late last year.  We have witnessed the return of the legendary 5.0 Mustang.  Now, we have caught wind of some continued buzz surrounding the return of a street-trimmed BOSS Mustang.  Mark Fields, Ford President of the Americas, recently dropped a hint/clue/seed/tale that the BOSS moniker could make its way back to production.

“We did the Bullitt, we did a Mach 1, we did the C/S.  I can’t tell you what the next special edition Mustang will be, but I can give you a hint.”

Shortly after his teaser lines, a 1970 BOSS 302 Mustang thundered across the hosting dealership stage and Fields remarked, “Is that a subtle enough hint?”

Let’s hope so, Mark.  Let’s hope so.
