I've heard rumors for a while now that the mustang is due for a complete remodel, so i just thought id come on the forums and see what everybody thought. At this point the S197 platform has been out for almost 7 years, and i do love what the new edge stangs are coming to be. I would like, however, to see some ideas for future revamps. I'm partially curious as to whether ford will try to make it look like a damn future car like some of their concepts, but im praying it isn't so. With the way the 2013 GT500 is looking, it will be one hell of a machine. I'm just curious as to whether the S197 will be replaced anytime soon or not. What do you guys think?
They said that the next generation Mustang will not continue the retro look. It'll look less retro than it does now, supposedly it'll (possibly) look more "European" or "Futuristic (or straight up, less retro)."
It'll lose about a couple hundred lbs (around 300 lbs I think) which people said will finally make it a "real" sports car (and perhaps lose the Muscle Car title) since it'll lose the extra heavy weight, according to some people.
It'll have independent suspension replacing the solid rear axle.
It'll be "smaller" and "lighter" than the current Mustang.
This new generation Mustang will be sold around the world.
Another little fact: Ford might bring back the SVO as an EcoBoost 4 cylinder turbocharged Mustang.
This is what I've heard about so far. I'm afraid of what the design will look like. I've loved the S197s since they first came out.. And now it's going to be gone. Now I know how all the "SN-95-or-die" owners felt. :/
