I would agree. After all this retro crap that is getting dated we need an extreme makeover. I say keep the V8 and give me something striking

Retro is cool - though getting dated (no pun intended), and I don't mind styling cues like the famous Mustang rear window, but yes it's time for something more revolutionary. 911 Might be my one exception as it's grown striking throughout it's years old or new.

That was one of the first renderings speculated on the 2015. One of my favorites as well. Modern body and design with retro inspirations

Its much more evolutionary than revolutionary...

I expected a bigger change considering all the talk out there...

Default Ford trademarking 'Mach 1,' possibly for Mustang

Ford trademarking 'Mach 1,' possibly for Mustang



A legendary name might be accompanying the redesigned, 2015 Mustang when it finally makes its world debut - Mach 1. Stumbled upon by the team at Ford Authority, the Mach 1 title was found in a trademark filing with the US Patent and Trademark Office, and would revive a name last used on the fourth-generation, 2003 Mustang.

While the the 2003 vintage was well and good, the Mach 1 is really remembered for a three-year run from 1969 to 1971 - it's best to just forget the emissions-choked 1972 to 1978 Mach 1s - when power output ranged from a modest 250 horsepower with the two-barrel, 351-cubic-inch Windsor V8 to "375 hp" (actual output was rumored to be well north of 400 horsepower) with the righteous, 429-cubic-inch Super Cobra Jet V8.

What does the title hold for the sixth-generation Mustang? It's tough to say. The fanatics at Ford Authority seem to think Mach 1 could take the place of the Shelby GT500 at the top of the Mustang hierarchy, which sounds like a valid argument. At the same time, we could see the SVT Cobra moniker returning for the flagship model, and the Mach 1 doing battle with the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 (unless the Boss 302 were to return). Confounding things is the historical precedent - the Mach 1 was responsible for the death of the Mustang GT in 1969, so it might make sense as a volume performance model.

While we can speculate until we're blue in the face, the only thing we know for certain is that all should be revealed when the Mustang finally debuts in December.

Car And Driver is claiming the photo on their page is the real deal. I'm trying to copy and paste but it's crashing my computer. Should be all over the web in a few hours.
