2015 Ford Mustang: Better Than a Scion FR-S?

September 19th, 2014

2015 Ford Mustang

I think it’s safe to say that Top Gear is a respected and trusted source of automotive news and opinion. When the television hosts or blog writers give an opinion, the world tends to listen.

When I saw the headline that the British blokes had driven the upcoming 2015 Mustang, I prepared myself to read about Ford’s still-inferior performance, interior, steering, yada, yada, yada.

Instead what I read was an absolutely glowing take on the pony car that has taken 50 years to finally arrive on UK shores. That’s great for them, but what will it mean to Mustang purists here in the United States?

Wow. Where to start on the new 2015 Mustang?

Today has provided an all-out cacophony of news as the worst-kept secret in Mustang history was officially unveiled, along with pictures, videos and almost all the information we could ever want on the newest pony in Ford’s stable.

Oddly enough, some of the only information missing from today’s reveal are the minor details of horsepower, fuel economy and price.

That aside, though, it looks like Ford has hit this one out of the park.

Are You Excited for the 2015 Mustang?

Ford Evos Concept: Previewing the next Mustang?

Ford Evos Concept: Previewing the next Mustang?

Shopping for used muscle cars is fun.

What could be better than prowling through the used listings looking for giant V8 engines, high horsepower ratings and low prices?

The last decade or so has been super good for fans of muscle cars as the Big 3 have churned out a nearly endless supply of retro-styled cars meant to satisfy the primal urges of middle-aged men wanting to relive their youth.

The era of retro may be about to come to an end, as the next Mustang will ditch its familiar looks and morph into a svelte and modern sports car.

Will that force some people to only consider older Mustangs when looking for used muscle?

Blasphemy or Brilliant? Four-Cylinder Mustang Will Be Produced

Ford Evos concept could preview the 2015 Mustang

Ford is creating all kinds of controversy regarding the next Mustang. First of all, the design will abandon its retro looks and evolve into a sleeker sports car worthy of worldwide distribution. The car’s infamous rear suspension will finally be modernized, and to top it all off, a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine will be on the options list for the first time since the mid-1980s.

That’s a lot for Mustang fans to digest all at once.

Even more controversial than the existence of the four-banger is the determination of who will get access to it.

Front of the next Mustang?

If there are deities in the car world, the Ford Mustang and Ferrari Enzo might be candidates for the top job. Both have reached legendary status, have legions of fans and have spawned many years of devotional writings and devout followers.

Both the Mustang and the Enzo are about to undergo changes and reveal all-new versions, and both have been spotted in cloaked disguises on the streets of their respective countries.

Like hidden sentinels, these gods of all things automotive will surely redefine their categories… as soon as the cloaks come off.

Should a Global Mustang Still Be Called a Mustang?

April 13th, 2012

Ford Evos Concept: A preview of the 2015 Mustang?

The Ford Mustang will soon turn 50 years old.

In planning for the 2015 edition of the beloved and classic muscle car, Ford has some options.

Option 1: Let the car finish out its natural life then fade into history, proud of the contribution it has made to American culture.

Option 2: Carry on as usual, with a slight nip and tuck but no drastic changes, because Americans will keep buying it.

Option 3: Completely redesign the car, throw out everything the Mustang has ever been and relaunch it to a worldwide audience.

The Ford of the past would be perfectly content with option 2. Plenty of folks throughout the country surely believe the Mustang has run its course and deserves the dignity of option 1.

Option 3, though, could be what’s in store.
