When TTAC first got the news about the 2015 Ford Mustang’s engineering changes, we were pretty excited about the prospect of not one but two high-revving naturally aspirated V8 engines, and a independent rear suspension. But our source wasn’t so hot on the exterior styling, which he described as being too round and akin to the rather bulbous Evos concept.
The Evos may be a looker, but I much prefer the retro styling of the current ‘Stang. So much so that I thought long and hard about snapping up a current generation 5.0. Although I had the numbers all worked out, Ford decided that they weren’t going to lend me press cars anymore, and I decided that I didn’t feel like giving my money to a company that considered myself, my co-workers and my employer to be persona non-grata.
Since then, a couple things have happened. TTAC and Ford are now back on speaking terms, and some new renders of the 2015 Mustang have been released over at Mustang6G.com. According to our source, they are pretty much accurate, though there are more curves and soft surfaces than the renders can accurately depict. Nevertheless, if this is what the 2015 car looks like, I’m not really sure if I want to snap up one of the final examples of this generation anymore.
