    Rendering: 2023 Mustang (based on Ford Evos)

    Tbh I have no idea what this car is supposed to be. The Dutch car mag that has posted these pictures suspects it might be a facelift for the Chinese market version of the Mondeo, as that is the only market where they have not announced it to be end of life. The Mustang-esque tail lights are the...

    Rendering: 2023 Mustang (based on Ford Evos)

    An interesting test vehicle was spotted in the US. It looks like a Fusion/Mondeo type sedan with the new Evos style front end and quite remarkable tail lights as well.

    Rendering: 2023 Mustang (based on Ford Evos)

    I would agree that the general front end design direction of Ace's renders is the correct one. My biggest question would be will the grille connect directly to the headlights, like in render v1 and the Equator, or will they be separated by body color, like in render v2 and the Fiesta and Focus...

    Stangmode from YouTube says S550 will be last Gen ICE GT500?!!!

    Weight distribution. The entire suspension is designed based on a relative large weight in the front of the car. If you remove that and put a ton of batteries plus an electric motor in the rear you will end up with 10:90 weight distribution instead of 60:40. You will be doing wheelies even when...

    Stangmode from YouTube says S550 will be last Gen ICE GT500?!!!

    Exactly that. They have been able to cleverly hide this fact by making the doors cover those extra inches in floor height, but if you open them or look a bit deeper into the body in white it is 100% fact that it is impossible to build a well proportioned coupe on the current Mach-E platform...

    Stangmode from YouTube says S550 will be last Gen ICE GT500?!!!

    I have been looking at a lot of Sandy Munro videos lately, especially about their detailed dismantling of EVs and the Mach-E in particular. Not just because it brings me great pleasure to see one less Mach-E on the road, but it is actually really interesting to see how these cars are designed...

    Mustang S650 Design Previewed by ‘Progressive Energy In Strength’ Sculpture

    If it is going to look anything like that sculpture I'm already a fan. The grille design looks like it could be done both in an open ICE as well as a closed electro variant without changing the base design of the front end.

    Mustang S650 Design Previewed by ‘Progressive Energy In Strength’ Sculpture

    The title somehow sounds a bit like an announcement for electrification? If you consider electrification something progressive that is of course.

    Report: Next gen S650 Mustang will have full 8 year life cycle

    That's normal consumer behavior once a niche market car has been through its first 5 years. Wait till the S650 comes out and they will spike again like never before. Aussies love muscle cars like no other.

    Report: Next gen S650 Mustang will have full 8 year life cycle

    So that basically contradicts what the Automotive News article reports, where it states that "expected to be moved to the same rear-wheel-drive/all-wheel-drive platform shared by the Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator". It's either D2C based (adapted with CD6 components) or it is CD6 based. It...

    Report: Next gen S650 Mustang will have full 8 year life cycle

    I think that was more or less a given already. In general emission standards around the world are a bit less harsh on bigger vehicles. So making it bigger will be beneficial to keeping the V8 around.

    Report: Next gen S650 Mustang will have full 8 year life cycle

    This story makes more sense than the 'S650 will be a 4 year run before the CD6 based S750' we had recently. I guess the biggest question now is will S650 still be on an adapted version of the S550 platform (as was suggested earlier) or will they make the move to the CD6 platform straight away...

    S650 Mustang launches in 2022 as 2023MY reveals Ford Linkedin post

    So S650 is basically a 4 year transitional in between generation before we go into the all new CD6 platform? I never realized that. Sounds quite cost ineffective if you ask me.
