Hope that will not be the case with this.

This quote from Rehaan sums it well;
Even I'm skeptical about this, the reason behind Ford had never made an announcement officially yet. All it started with rumored note in Motoroids then followed by Autocar. Moreover 50th year edition of Ford Mustang will have a right hand drive, why cant they be for UK, Australia or China?
Having said all these I'm one among few / many who wish we have Shelby GT500 Super Snake on Indian roads, at least to hear its exhaust note.

That render is awesome. But ford is trying to build a brand, not numbers with the stang. They can actually launch the GT500 and sell a few or keep it in the showroom to generate more talks

The new coyote 5.0 V8 engine is brilliant.
But, the car's live rear axle is horrible. I've noticed that this mustang is for those who prefer form over function. Definitely not for me.

I am almost certain that the live axle will be history in the 2014 Mustangs and replaced by the IRS setup with a bit of European touch to it

Just a quick thought - the tail lights of Mustang is unique in the sense that the same lights function as park/brake/indicators. Really loved the way the blinkers worked when I first saw it in action when I went to US.

Will that be accepted by the authorities in India, when the CMVR mandates amber for indicators and red for the brake lights? Not sure if Ford might be forced to put 'made for India' standard lights when launching in India for compliance to rules!

10 days to GO!

Quote:
"Ford has made no secret about the development of a new Mustang, and the manufacturer has just confirmed a global reveal will take place on 5 December.

At the event, the sixth-generation model will be introduced - the first Mustang since the car's original launch in 1964"

Check out MT http://wot.motortrend.com/1312_leake...-leaked-image/

I am not sure if this is the real deal. If so 2014 looks better than 2015.Everyone is ranting about the design on MT as well. IMO still the challenger being a true blue muscle looks way better.

For Henry's sake, why??

The Mustang was one of the few muscle cars that actually looked the part. Don't get me wrong; I love the Italian and other streamlined beauties but the way that these cars exude a raw, brawny, menacing vibe around them appeal to me a lot more than the sleek-looking ones.

And this is where the 2015 Mustang has gone wrong. It looks 'soft' now. I seriously pray that they revise the looks and not come out with this wimp* of a design.

*entirely subjective
