Neil C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
2004 Mustang

Ford has not even announced it yet, but a relative of mine that works at the Mazda/Ford assembly plant here says she's seen a mockup of the new Mustang. It will be built on the same platform as the new Mazda 6.

She says it will have a somewhat retro look, back to the late '60s, (before, I hope, the Mustangs did an "Elvis" and bloated up in the 70's.)

She was critical of the Mazda 626/Merc Cougar she was building, but feels this new platform will produce high quality cars.

Has anyone seen spy photos or artist drawings of the new 'stang yet? I'd like to see it.

Huh? That doesn't make any sense... It's supposed to be on the Lincoln LS platform!

It looks like the Mustang shown in the AutoWeek article is a show car, and probably will not be entirely representative of the vehicle as it will appear on the showroom floor.

I like the drawing in link 2. I hope they style it this way!

Think of is as a 2-door Lincoln LS, which is a good thing...fine car, that.

I'm perusing Lincoln's LS website. They say the 2003 Lincoln LS has F1 inspired suspension! I didn't know F1 cars use Mac Struts!

Umm, the Mazda 6 has had great reviews here. I have sat in one and thought it was worthy of my hard earned. Until I thought what the hell, let's buy something more exciting.

Well, there just maybe something coming that might excite.

Mazda have published piccies of a prototype Mazda6 MPS. It's a direct stab at the Subaru/Mitsu market, but it looks soooo much nicer. 4 wheel drive, 2.3 Turbo developing the obligatory 276bhp, and 265 lb/ft of torque.

Only thing is, they haven't decide whether to build it yet.

Everybody, get to your Mazda dealer right away and TELL them to build it!!

There really are differences between a year-old impressions of Motor Trend and these new ones...in favor of those new ones, it is almost like 1967 "Bullit"-Mustang (Witch I love).

I'm not a huge Mustang fan, but the rendering that Korr posted as his second link ignited the faint remnants of adolescent testosterone I stil have.

I'm changing my name to Steve McQueen.

Being based on the Mazda6: Would that mean going to FWD?

It is NOT based upon the Mazda platform. It's based upon the LS platform, which is rear-drive.

Remember the once planned replacement for the Mustang...the Ford Probe? Ha ha! I don't think Ford will ever do that again!
