It appears that Ford is preparing a big change for the next-generation Mustang as the well-known muscle car will ditch the retro styling and adopt the styling seen on the Evos Concept. According to The Wall Street Journal, the sixth-generation Mustang wants to attract younger buyers as the number of those customers who loved the original 1964 Mustang is shrinking.
Ford decided to change Mustang’s styling after the muscle car lost the sales race with the new Chevrolet Camaro. For those who don’t know, the Camaro is more popular than the Mustang and the numbers speak for themselves: Ford sold 20,133 Mustangs in the first three months of this year, while General Motors sold 21,924 Camaros. Still, Ford wants to beat GM and for the 2013 model, it will offer the Shelby GT500 which has 650 hp and which promises to overtake the 580-hp Camaro ZL1.
