Boy from all the talk lately I was expecting something more revolutionary. Perhaps it's just another mule or maybe it's the real deal

BUT in todays day and age of high tech development you never know. I still not holding my breath. The only way this will happen is if, like they said, the Mustang is significantly smaller and narrower. 15" shorter and 6" narrower seems a bit extreme

Its usually a big deal if the next model is even 100 lbs lighter than the previous so this is definitly a bold statement. I am looking forward to it but not if the next stang is the size of a civic
We'll see. I have a feeling it may be under delivered but should be in the 100-200 range. As for the F-150 I think we'll see more.

The most relaistic way to reach that goal other than the part and weight reduction int he parts themselves would be just going much smaller. Sounds like they are going to do both. It will be cool to see what they do, but it sounds like they have some serious goals. Other than the recent 1000 lb weight loss we see in the new Range Rover I cant think of another car that lost ( especially in the lower end of the market) anything near that much weight. Eve Ferrari cant cut that kind of weight in one generation. I wonder

Default Ford Mustang GT500 successor spied near SVT

Details about the next-gen Ford Mustang are scarce, and there's even less information out there about the upcoming replacement for the Shelby GT500. Previously rumored to drop the Shelby name and wear the GT350 moniker, the highest-performance Mustang has just been spotted testing near Ford's SVT operations.

Despite being cloaked in heavy camouflage, we can instantly tell this prototype is different from other Mustang spy shots we've seen in the past. Aside from the Shelby-spec wheels, quad exhaust outlets (previous spy shots show only two) and beefier brakes, this car also has air intakes on the hood and front fenders. These elements help to neither prove nor dismiss rumors that the next SVT Mustang will be naturally aspirated. It also looks like Ford is may be planning some changes to this car's rear suspension, as there is some extra camouflage added beneath the rear end of this prototype.

As a bonus, these spy shots also give us our first look inside the new Mustang, revealing a new steering wheel (with more buttons) and a glimpse of the dual-pod instrument gauges.
