2015 Ford Mustang spied wearing a funny hatWed, 28 Aug 2013 00:00:00 -0700
In an attempt to hide its secrecy while on Detroit's roadways, Ford has opted to give its Mustang some, uh, unusual camouflage. Is that a two-seater sports car, or a Morris Oxford? Is the Stay-Puft Man going out for a drive? (On second thought, let's not make fun of the beleaguered driver, who is inevitably trying to get away from prying eyes as we speak.)
Compare these spy shots, taken by a friend of Autoweek, with shots of its front end -- those, from a week earlier, were probably the clearest photos yet.
What we can infer from this camouflaged car is that the 2015 Mustang keeps similar proportions to the current model; it'll also look good on the Mustang GT's base 5-spoke wheels. That swim cap on the roof fails to disguise the sloping fastback roofline that extends to somewhere, we'd say, past the rear wheels. The 2015 Mustang will receive turbocharged power for the first time since the 1984 SVO, de rigueur at Ford these days, but also an independent rear suspension -- across the entire lineup -- for the first time since ever. It will also come generously equipped with door handles.
Expect to see this Mustang arrive, with reverent fervor, in the middle of next year.
