Well, we didn’t actually spy it but Brenda Priddy and Company did (she’s good, pretty much the queen of car spy photos. Thanks for the pic by the way). While it’s clear this car is pretty heavily cloaked, there’s no mistaking it for a next-gen Mustang nor disputing the speculation that this is what’s coming next for Ford’s Ponycar in 2010.
A facelift of some sort is evident and recent speculation points to the ’10 Mustang being fitted with a new front and rear fascia including grille, new headlamps and taillights. A revised interior is expected also, though it was also heavily covered so no new details are available in that department. As for the powerplant, well your guess is as good as ours. We have it on good authority though that there’s a good chance we’ll be seeing a BOSS 5.7-liter V8 engine offered as an option.
January of 2009, that’s when the facelifted Mustang is expected to go into production. It’s been scheduled (reportedly) for an on-sale date in first quarter of ’09. Although it’ll likely hit the dealerships very early in 2009, it’s expected to be sold as a 2010 model.
Unfortunately that’s pretty much all we know about the new Mustang, but rest assured if anything else develops you’ll be the first to know. In the meantime, discussion about this photo is taking place here.
