The new generation of the Ford Mustang GT will be based on a completely new platform.
According to an anonymous source from inside the company, Ford’s new muscle car is based on the S550 platform and not the S197 that is used by the fifth generation of the model.
In short this means that it will be a completely new car that will be created to celebrate the 50 years of the model.The company has made it clear that the design will have retro elements, rumors indicate that it will borrow design elements from the Ford Evos Concept.The car will be available in Europe. Finally, it has an independent rear suspension and a 2.3 liter turbo engine wich will also be fitted in the next Ford Focus RS.
The 5.0L V8 will remain as an option, although possibly not for Europe. The Shelby GT500 will also remain part of the lineup, although its engine is unknown.
