Yes, this looks like your average 2013 GT when it comes to the body, but there are a few clues that this spy photographer picked up that might make this the Test Mule for the next-gen 2015 Mustang.
What you ask? According to the spy photographer, the super-wide panel gaps, missing roof channel fillers and the wider roof seam channels, odd fuel cover, diced up rear diffuser all point toward this being just a shell of a 2013 Mustang.
Of course, the mechanics need to be tested first. According to rumors swirling around, the 5.0-L Coyote V8 is said to continue on through 2015, but halting the production of the V6 Mustang has been thrown around with the introduction of the EcoBoost. That means that the current V6 Mustang is rumored to be replaced with a 2.3-liter or turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder. Can you say SVO?
Not only that but it is said to have IRS, independent rear suspension, and it is in fact going global. The so-called Control Blade trailing-arm setup is perhaps compares most to the RWD Falcon from Australia.
Hopefully , we won’t wait too long before we know for sure and as Ford enjoys the PDA, the 2015 model will likely be unveiled at the 2014 New York Auto Show just in time for the 50th anniversary celebration.
