  1. There will be a hybrid Mustang...........and a fully electric "Mustang inspired SUV". And worldwide they sold nearly 136,000 S550s in 2018!
  2. This ^^ This car could be as important as the Model T as it ushers in the future for Ford mobility........so it doesn't need to Mustang name. Ford Model E would work perfectly (assuming copyright etc)
  3. It looks nice........but I really thought those retro styling cues (faux gas cap, offset pony etc) would have looked better on a 55th Anniversary SE
  4. Ford Authority are suggesting this could be the new "SVO"............but I'm wondering if this isn't a 55th Anniversary SE. It's riding on 50th Anniversary wheels and the faux gas cap is usually reserved for the more "retro" models (like said 50th Anniversary SE and the Cali Special) http://fordauthority.com/2019/04/new-spy-pictures-potentially-show-upcoming-mustang-svo/?fbclid=IwAR1fDXtuv9kGHaWTFTpH46jGiSLyIV2bUHOEf2GGt5qIaNzNqctGcAsXJcI Here's the 50th, for reference....

    Because it goes against what the Mustang represents...........Mustang is a cool, sporty 2+2 that has become an icon over 55 years. If they ever remake Bullitt, do you think the new Lt Frank would drive this?

    I think that's exactly why they're doing it. The Mustang name automatically brings a level of coolness and desirability to the product and it'll likely attract customers that wouldn't necessarily want a Ford. Unfortunately, I think Ford will alienate the millions of current Mustang owners instead. If this does end up called Mustang and/or feature the pony badge, it'll be the biggest mistake since Ford tried to make the 4th Gen Mustang a transverse FWD coupe. Fortunately, back then, after the Mustang faithful let them know in no uncertain terms, the back-tracked and called it the Probe and we got the SN95 instead.

    Now that I can get behind........even the hybrid-Mustang I could get behind being called Mach E. It just worries me that they stuck a pony on the rendering of the electric SUV!
  11. https://www.mustang6g.com/forums/threads/ford-trademarks-mustang-mach-e-name-and-new-pony-badge.119967/ Are Ford really going to call the electric SUV a Mustang AND use a pony badge? 55 years of heritage about to be thrown out of the window!
  12. https://www.automobilemag.com/news/next-ford-mustang-details-on-sale-info/ A heavily revised D2C for '23MY followed by all new S650 for '26 or '28/'29MY..........hmm, not sure what to make of that! One source says the CD6 Mustang, which goes by the codename S650, appears to be delayed at least to the 2026 model year, while another source guesses 2028 or 2029, either of which makes it less of a product plan than a promise to keep building the icon. In the interim, the S550 Mustang will receive a major mid-cycle facelift to update its current D2C platform and reskin it with new sheetmetal from nose to tail, which will require some underbody work. It’s the mid-cycle D2C update that will spawn a Mustang hybrid, although that car is said to be delayed slightly from the 2021 model year to early in calendar-year 2022.

    Mustang Hybrid Mule?

    Spied again..........a Euro-spec Bullitt this time. I think the fact its a Bullitt is a bit of a red herring.......I'm sure it was just an available car to use for testing, so I wouldn't expect any updates to the production Bullitt. I do wonder if some of the Bullitt's upgrades (exhaust/20hp etc) will become standard on the '21MY GT though. https://www.motor1.com/news/315832/ford-camouflaged-mustang-bullitt-test/amp/?fbclid=IwAR3QPflanZNwMLI0_ucFW5CdMGiHnfPVqsE5RFEu2ATUKQnovnSza0kyWt4
