Mono Craft GT-300 with a few upgrades...
I don't believe that came from Ford, as a "What if" or "hey Blue Oval People, what do you think". That rendering gives no thought to engine access. A true "Wadda ya think" drawing would have.
The Mustang is not a Vette. The Vette has been a sports car its entire life(somewhat lifeless in some of its guises, but still a sports car). to truly be modern, it had to go "True mid engine(please don't argue FME/RME)", and should have done it ages ago. The Mustang should stay right where it is...a Pony Car like the Camaro, and not bad looking at all...ALL this, IMHO 😊
What kind of half-hearted rendering is that? I'd like to smack whoever put their name on that.
Wasn't the Mustang concept a midengine sports car? Then the production version turned into an automotive money grab. A damn good money grab, the first lifestyle car? My Uncle has a Mach 1, that straight line rumblin'... convinces you it's really a thing. Told me he would race the Mr2 for pinks. I said, "hell yeah, but I get to pick the road."
If Ford touches it, they will screw it up.
Look at the new Bronco (no really they say it isn't just a Bronco II) being a reskinned Ranger offered in two and four door trim.
Then again the CEO just announced that the Bronco and Mustang were going to become entire families of vehicles including a Mustang looking SUV.
Mustang SUV? Like that horrible BMW X6 atrocity that doesn't know what it wants to be when it grows up?
I haven't liked Mustangs since, well, ever, but -- aside from nobody giving a damn what I like or think -- I think they should leave it alone. It's an icon. Don't screw with it. Mid-engine, sure. A crossover? BARF! It will be a laughingstock to the purists, and always inappropriate to drive four kids to soccer practice, just like that silly X6.
I doubt it would even appeal to the Porsche station wagon crowd, since it won't cost enough to make whatever that statement is that they are making with that, um, thing.
The lineup is further expanding with a performance electric vehicle, an SUV with Mustang styling cues. Developed on Ford's new electric vehicle architecture, it will launch in 2020.
