Next Ford Mustang’s handsome face visualized in artist renders

Thanks to the good folks over at Mustang6G, we have the closest idea yet as to what Ford’s 2015 updated Mustang will look like. Using a mixture of CAD diagrams and spy shots of the car during testing, Mustang6G’s resident artist created renders of the new Mustang, and if they’re accurate — which we think they are — it’s shaping up to be a very handsome evolution of the legendary muscle car.

Featuring a sleeker silhouette than the current model, and a redesigned rear with new, louvered tail lights, it’s a welcome refresh in time for the model’s 50th birthday. While some will wish Ford had been more drastic in their redesign, there’s a certain degree of “if it ain’t broke…” mentality that we support — the Mustang is still a good looking car, even as its rivals go bolder in the design stakes.

Sources hint that we could be seeing Ford-sanctioned renders being released soon, giving further clues as to what the final model will look like. Another rumor holds that Ford will also reveal the Mustang in December, ahead of its official launch at the 2014 North American Internation Auto Show. A Merry Christmas indeed, if Ford actually do so. Whatever happens, we can at least be sure that the final incarnation of the Mustang will be a fitting — if restrained — addition to the brand’s legacy.
