Automakers work hard to stop leaks and make sure their products are kept under wraps until the time is right. They’re not always successful, however, and sometimes the leaks come from outside the company. This time, it’s the UAW’s documents giving out more info than Ford probably wants, as it recently confirmed that Mustang production will end in 2028.
The Ford Mustang has always been known for affordable -- or affordable-ish -- performance. The newest vehicle in the pony-car lineup will be priced not to compete with Camaros and Chargers but single-family homes. Meet the $300,000 Mustang -- the 2025 Ford Mustang GTD.
Ford is pressing forward with new, more powerful Mustang variants when other automakers are pulling back on the segment. The company recently held a first drive for the 2024 Mustang, including the new Dark Horse variant, and we’re now seeing leaks for the Mustang GTD, a mid-engine car with wild styling and a surprising underbelly.
It was almost certainly a coincidence that the site Ford chose to launch the 2024 Ford Mustang GT was near a horse-racing track. The company likely chose the location due to its proximity to challenging mountain roads like the Angeles Crest Highway.
Still, I wouldn’t put it past them. After all, the seventh-generation Mustang is the company’s newest version of a muscle-car thoroughbred.
The Ford Mustang has long been considered a major performance bargain, but there have long been halo models with considerably higher price tags. That will continue to be the case in 2024, as Motor1 noticed that Ford’s new Mustang configurator shows prices ranging from mild to wild, as per tradition.
Jim Farley is one of the more active automotive CEOs on social media, frequently posting on Twitter and LinkedIn. Earlier this week, Farley tweeted a video of the company’s S650 Mustang GT3 race car, based on the upcoming 2024 Mustang. A while later, he retweeted his video with a question: Should we make a road version?
The early 2000s was a wild time for car culture. The import scene was hopping after The Fast and the Furious hit cinemas, and in 2004, the world was gifted with Pimp My Ride. Powered by rapper Xzibit, the show featured “unsuspecting” car owners taking their rides to the extreme with wild colors, rims, and customizations. A few of the cars have surfaced over the years, but surprisingly, the one in this sales listing isn’t one of them.

- Oberkanone BMW, Ford, Honda, and Volkswagen have different fleet emissions rules than Stellantis and other manufacturers. This is unfair trade practice and California is the leader of this criminal conspiracy. Unified emissions regulations are needed. Disjointed patchwork of CARB and Federal emissions states results in harm to our economy inefficient manufacturing. CARB emissions regulations violate the Commerce Clause by engaging in extraterritorial regulation.
- 28-Cars-Later Ha, about 60% of the original price... I think these were going out for around $14s in stripper edition with row your own (I believe this was still the first gen made in Japan as well). If I'm right about JDM assembly, this will sell itself soon.
