    Spying: 2015 Ford Mustang

    The spy photographers strike once again! This time, photos have been caught of the 2015 Ford Mustang.

    Now judging from the amount of camouflage on this mule, our guess is this a prototype version of what we'll be seeing on the road sometime next year. The design will take some ideas from the Evos concept and the so-called Kinetic 2.0 design language seen on the new Fusion. The front-end is tapered and rounded, and features a large grille opening. The roofline at the back appears to have a more dramatic curve to it.

    Like previous times, the new Mustang is expected to come with a independent rear suspension. Engine lineup will somewhat remain the same; a V6 will stay as the base choice, followed by the much speculated 2.3L EcoBoost four, and then 5.0L V8.

    Then it gets a bit interesting... According to Road & Track, the SVT Shelby Cobra could be undergoing some major changes. The Shelby name is expected to be dropped off, along with supercharger. In its place will be a monstrous V8 engine, no supercharger or turbocharger to seen.

    Small? I thought it looked kind of large in the pictures I've seen of it. But then again, I don't think there was anything close by that I could judge the scale from correctly. I will say I'm not really crazy about it though. It's missing a lot of the characteristic Mustang trademark qualities and I think it looks a little too exotic, almost like the Batmobile or something. I have a feeling not as many people will want something so flashy.

    I've read that it may be 5 inches shorter and 4 inches narrower than the current car, so fairly small...not quite BRZ/FT 86 sized, but closer to the Fox era Mustangs in size..

    The model still looks in in its development stage and we might have to wait for a while before seeing how it finally shapes up!

    But the spy pictures already look very attractive indeed! :)

    I guess that is much smaller then. I had the 1999 model when it came out - that was the first year they switched to the "knife cut" design I believe. It seemed a little bigger than the redesign that came out in like 2005 - and this is to be even smaller. It's almost starting to sound like the size of the 80's mustangs, lol.

    Actually, the '05-09 is about 6 inches longer (the wheelbase increased by about 6 inches) than the '99-04 'New Edge' era. Hard to believe, but the '05-09 and '10-14 Mustangs are within two inches of the huge looking '71-73 models as far as wheelbase, length, width and height...
