Check out this new video of the 2015 Mustang which shows off the lines and color of a convertible model. A bit of Mustang car erotica for more than one reason — the presenter gets awfully touchy, not that we blame him.

Ford introduced a host of new technologies and features when it unveiled the 2015 Mustang on December 5, 2013. It should be no surprise then that the 2015 Mustang was recently named the Official Car of the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which is set to kick off on January 7, 2014 in Las Vegas. The next-generation Mustang will be prominently displayed in the Grand Lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center and the convertible will be on display at Ford’s main display area in the North Hall.
The new technologies to be shown in the 2015 Mustang are Ford’s updated SYNC connectivity system, MyFord Touch, appLink, intelligent access, track apps, launch control and adaptive cruise control. There have also been recent rumors of a “secret” new feature that chief engineer, Dave Pericak, said would be an “OEM first.” Many have speculated that this new feature could be an electronic burnout control. If so, it could be one of the many technologies to be shown off on January 7th at CES.
As you may remember, the Ford Evos concept, which previewed many of Ford’s new technology features, was also displayed in the Ford exhibit at the International CES in 2012.

A report comes from the 2013 Performance Racing Industry (PRI) show, via a Ford Racing employee, purporting that the live-axle version of the 2015 Ford Mustang is expected to debut at next year’s PRI show as part of a new “body in white” program.
Once the live-axle 2015 Mustang racers are out “in the wild”, the parts needed to convert street-going Mustangs from independent rear suspensions to the 9″ solid live axle suspension setup should become available through Ford Racing and participating dealers.Read More »
Over the course of the next few weeks we will be posting visual and preliminary specification comparisons of the 2015 Mustang against its competitors.
To start, we have a comparison of the 2015 Mustang GT versus the 2014 Mustang GT — While there are still unknowns regarding power, performance, and other details of the next-gen Mustang, based on the info that we have and the cars that Ford has benchmarked the S550 Mustang against, how do you think the 2015 Mustang will stack up against its competition?

Paul Walker may have been a Hollywood star who often played a car nut, but this reflected the true passion he had for cars in his personal life, in which he both collected and raced cars. What we didn’t know until seeing this video is just how bit of a Mustang fan he was.
Judging by this video which reveals his extensive car collection, Mustangs must have been one of his favorite. [View Video]Read More »
Ford has begun to ready its Flat Rock Assembly Plant (FRAP) by retooling and adding a second shift of 1,200 workers who will begin building 2015 Mustang prototypes in January, 2014. The timing is appropriate, as Ford will be idling FRAP later this month due to slow sales of the current Mustang as customers have held off on purchases ahead of the recent 2015 Mustang reveal. Ford will use this downtime to retool the plant and train workers as well as make a host of modifications to the plaint, including its paint shop, in part by cutting a wall to accommodate the wider next-generation Mustang.
Ford is said to be readying the plant for sales of the new Mustang in the Fall of 2014 and all exports to Europe and Asia will be serviced by the Flat Rock Plant. As Ford chief engineer Dave Pericak stated, “everything is contained in one plant, one platform and it’s going to service the world.”
