    • Ford to produce the S550 Mustang until 2026 or later?

      Stretching out a platform a bit or profit is one thing but this sounds absurdly long. The next generation S650 Mustang will not appear until 2026 or later if Automobile Magazine is to believe (and they should not be believed).


      This is all based on anonymous sources:

      One source says the CD6 Mustang, which goes by the codename S650, appears to be delayed at least to the 2026 model year, while another source guesses 2028 or 2029, either of which makes it less of a product plan than a promise to keep building the icon. In the interim, the S550 Mustang will receive a major mid-cycle facelift to update its current D2C platform and reskin it with new sheetmetal from nose to tail, which will require some underbody work. Its the mid-cycle D2C update that will spawn a Mustang hybrid, although that car is said to be delayed slightly from the 2021 model year to early in calendar-year 2022.
      What are we supposed to make of that?

      Only the third generation Mustang was produced for over a decade. The S550 remember started as a 2015 model year car.

      Automobile does not have any Ford sources to corroborate their report and just seems to be guessing.

      Just enjoy the upcoming GT500 and let Ford worry about the next generation Mustang which likely will arrive much sooner than 2026.

        Ford has been killing it with the Gt350 and now this monster GT500, now if they could just fix a couple mistakes they made. Drop the DCT in the gt350, and put the new GT500 motor into the Ford GT and throw away the ECOboost.

        DCT in the GT350 should be a no-brainer and well, too late for a Ford GT redesign.
