Looks like the rear end design for 2024 is very close to 2018 GT from UK.

Rear_end_compare.jpg

Ignore that rear end..............the white test car is a mule, so they've taken the current car (in this case a '21 Mach 1) and used it as a base. The only '24MY stuff on this is the bits you can't see (underneath) and the heavily camo'd front end. The rear WILL change, but this particular car doesn't have those updates yet.

Let's take a trip down memory lane...

Oh my do I remember that day. 🤣🤣🤣 Supposedly, orders were canceled, Ford was reported and investigated and the Camaro would win for sure. 😂😂😂


thePill PROMISES that just as many people will love the 2024 Mustang as there were that ordered the 2015-‘16. The 2024 is to the 1968 as the 2015 was to the 1965. I can’t see a 1970 inspired 2022 Mustang but with the new design, I can see the 1968, ‘69 and ‘70.

THIS IS IT!!! Oh man are people going to be excited!!! 😍🥰🥰 My only hope is that the design is so evolutionary AND revolutionary that it actually inspires the Mustang’s competitors to take one more risk and throw their hats back in the ring.

This is what Ford MotorSport, Roush and even Shelby wanted and I am pumped to see the rest of the body. Lowering the engine and entire center of gravity is an incredible feat to accomplish and a great way to optimize an already fantastic platform. ❤❤❤🥰🥰🥰

*ignore the extension in the red circle. It is merely a credit card shaped piece of plastic wedged in between the bumper cover and grill surround to hide the fascia.

Never say never. Ford designs engines when they decide to. Most people wouldn't have guessed that Ford would create the Voodoo engine in 2015 (pretty recently) for a small volume halo car. Didn't Ford also create specific engines for the previous gen GT500?

I don't think it's really that difficult for Ford to do if they decide they really want to. The question is just whether they have the will or not.

I think it would be cool if the next gen gets a longer hood - maybe Ford will design a new V10 based on Coyote architecture. I'm unlikely to buy another new 5.0 Mustang, but a 6.0 V10 Mustang would be great. 7.0 V12 even better.
As far as how the car would sound goes, I'd think a V16 or W16 would be the closest to the V8, albeit much more smoother and less growly at the low RPMs. But the V10 would a lot make more sense cost-wise. We have the Viper after all, and if I go by Forza standards some of them are still classified as muscle cars. (Would having a V10 alone disqualify a vehicle from being a muscle car?)

Actually they designed 2 versions. One for the F150, and one for the Mustang. It's really not hard to understand. They probably wouldn't have designed the Coyote for one vehicle. By designing separate versions it made sense for them to produce enough volume.
My 2020 F150 5.0 is basically identical to the one in the mustang. Same cams, heads, pistons, compression. It's the reason it hates 87 octane.

Older 5.0s were different in compression at least.

I was referring to the original designs. More has become common since then.

Don't know what cred you have, but spouting this as s650 ? You are either completely uninformed or way late for April 1st
Yeah, I'm pretty sure that image has existed for years lol. Not sure what he's on about.

You'll need to do better than that, Pill, this image was first shown on the Roush Performance Facebook page on 18th October 2019 ;)
