It appears Ford has been road testing prototypes of the much anticipated 2009 Mustang. KGP Photography snapped a barrage of pictures as the Mustang passed by during heavy traffic in what appears to be Dearborn. In true spy shot form, the the front half of the car is covered – though the resemblance is unmistakable. It’s clear this car has taken cues from the Italiano “Giugiaro” concept we first spotted at the LA Auto Show.
While the back half of the car appears mostly unchanged, the front clip looks to have taken styling cues from the Italian concept, which was rumored for 2010. Is this just a powertrain mule, testing an engine, or is this possibly the next bodystyle for Ford’s ponycar?
It’ll be exciting to see what the actual 2009 Mustang is going to look like – and how it fairs against the likes of the new Camaro and Challenger expected around the same time.
