It’s pretty much guaranteed these days that any greatly-anticipated new car will leak online before the day it’s supposed to debut. It’s happened more times than we can count—and it’s happened with the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang.
These first pictures of the 2015 Ford Mustang come from a leaked early copy of Autoweek magazine that surfaced on Ford Mustang forum Mustang6g.com, then made their way onto Jalopnik. As you can see, those early renderings of the car were pretty spot-on. The new 2015 Ford Mustang has a bold new look that’s both all-American and solidly modern—not much of the retro styling remains. It’s sloped, sleek, and sick. The new front end has more than a hint of the Evos Concept car, while the back end reminds us of a modern take on the classic Boss 302 ‘Stangs. The interior looks far nicer than the last car, too.
Details are still sketchy at this point, but from what we’ve seen on the forums, the new 2015 Ford Mustang will be around 200 pounds lighter than the outgoing car, use aluminum front fenders, and offer an available Performance Pack for both the 2.3 liter turbocharger inline-four Mustang and the 5.0-liter V8 Mustang—with the Performance Pack 5.0 V8 2015 Mustang being quicker around the track than the 2012 Boss ‘Stang. Oh, and there’ll be an independent rear suspension.
