50th anniversary Ford Mustang model rumored to be a global sports car

Article by Anita Panait, on July 24, 2012

Although Ford Motor Co. has been very secretive about its plans for the 50th anniversary edition of the Mustang in 2014, insiders familiar with the carmaker’s thinking have divulged some hints about the plan. Ford insiders said the Mustang will probably sport an independent rear suspension to give it an attribute like that of a global sports car, matching rivals like the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger.

Each of Ford’s Mustangs (except those specialized sporty versions) is pinned on a solid rear axle. To cover the extra expenses, Ford has to sell more Mustang units. The Mustang appeared recently in Ford’s “Go Further” corporate ads in Europe. According to sources privy with Ford’s planning, the carmaker plans to take the next-generation Mustang beyond North America, to Asia and Europe.

In fact, Ford announced last week that it will roll out the Mustang to the Philippines for the first time. There are reports that the latest Mustang will look like the Ford Evos concept, sporting a gaping front grille aperture that could be compared to an Aston Martin.

Ford also based the 2013 Ford Fusion on the Ford Evos Concept. However, sporting the new Evos style would mean that Mustang will no longer have the retro look that the current model has. This may trigger a sell-down among Mustang lovers on the last editions of the current model.
