Earlier this year, we brought you a photo of what we thought could be the new ’15 Mustang hiding inside the S-197 shell. There were a few indications pointing toward the 2015 Ford Mustang being cleverly tested incognito. Well, another “photo” (above) has surfaced claiming to be a spy shot of the new Mustang (looks
a little photoshopped). We’re not convinced, but check out this next claim…
[UPDATE: See the 2015 Mustang, complete with video, pictures and specs from the car’s official release.]
Not only do we have another “spy photo” but according to StangTV, a forum member of AllFordMustangs.com had the chance to compare new ’15 Mustang in-person as part of a marketing test group and decided to spill his findings. He says that the front end is larger than the current model and features “slit-styled” headlights. The trunk is shorter and it also has honeycomb grille with louvered taillights. The third brake light is also located BELOW the license plate. The forum member who made these claims said the concept rendering he’s seen that looks the closest to the 2015 Mustang that Ford showed him is this:
Not much was said about the interior except that the cup-holder is still in front of the shifter and everything appeared to have larger buttons.
He goes on to say that what he saw was a 2.3-L EcoBoost producing 310 horsepower while running 34 mpg, highway we assume. He brought up the option of a possible V8 EcoBoost creation that will likely get 500+ horses and still make 30 mpg.
It has been repeated that the Mustang will feature Independent Rear Suspension which has some worried, especially the hardcore live-axle enthusiasts, of where the new Mustang is headed.
What do you think of these 2015 test claims? Should we be convinced? Comment below and tell us what you think!
