The Ford Mustangs that never made it into production image

Have you ever wondered what might have been the future of certain iconic models if some other decisions were made during the design process? The people at Ford got nostalgic and dug into the archives to show us what kind of Mustangs never made it into production.

We need to remind you that the pictures in the gallery only show us a fraction of the design alternatives that came up for the Mustang, as during the past five decades, literally countless cars were drawn, built and tested by the Ford designers and engineers.

The fifth generation Mustang began its life with the 2005 model year, and received numerous minor improvements over the years, with also a 2010 facelift. Also, the 2013 model year Mustang exterior is updated with a new front fascia featuring a larger grille, with LED accent strips adjacent to the headlamp lens. Models equipped with the Pony Package offer LED lighting mounted on the sideview mirrors that produce a projection of a running horse on the ground, 18″ wheels, and lower valence foglamps.

Today’s hot-selling Mustang wears its heritage from the front pony badge to its rear vertical taillights, but over the years Ford executives have considered every possible variation of the Mustang — mid-engined, four-doors, even a wagon.
