Highly doubt it, it's a pushrod truck engine that's being made to replace the 6.2. If there were any intentions of putting a big V8 in a mustang, they probably would've done it with the 6.2 by now
Where did you get "push rod" that's NOT what I heard. Ford hasn't produced a push rod V8 since 2001 when the Windsor engine was finely retired. The Modular V8 and V10 took over and later the Boss 6.2L SOHC, and push rods were history. The new V8 will be at least a SOHC if not a DOHC design.
We’ve been having this debate in our office for a couple weeks now. The strongest indications we are getting is that it will be a SOHC, based on the manufacturing location and the product family it is evolving from.

I thought so too, but isn't it being manufactured at Windsor? And aren't all of Ford Performance's pushrod crate engines also manufactured at Windsor? The biggest thing that threw me off is I thought the 7.3 was going to be a member of the Modular family, but it doesn't look that way, as the source said "the first in a family of new engines", making me think maybe they're going to get into also producing smaller pushrod V8s for their trucks and SUVs (I don't think a Coyote would comfortably fit in an explorer)

I don't get this Camaro/Mustang rivalry, they're both similar types of cars. I can understand not wanting the car to look like say an Audi TT but as long as Ford follows a muscle/pony car formula then i have no issue.

OK, I'm assuming this isn't official, but someone has certainly gone to great lengths to produce these scale models. I found it on a FB page with no details other than "You saw it here. First. 5 years from now The Mustang. Yes or No"

Whilst its obvious there are two models here, its worth pointing out there are actually different......particularly around the front end (I prefer the one in the second image down, with the larger grille). Sadly, with the images being quite small and low-res, its difficult to make out the details.

After a bit of initial shock, I actually like these more than I thought I would, considering this is pushing the Mustang design forward a lot. My only concern would be the narrow DLO (Day Light Opening - or side windows to you and I!!) and lack of rear seat space. If this were a 2-seater, then no problem, but one of the things that has made (and continues to make) the Mustang a great sales success is its usability (decent-ish back seat & trunk room with good visibility)

That is not a product of the Ford Motor Company.

S650 will have softer lines like that Mazda Concept.

Mazda are producing some stunning designs at the moment, and it's a tragedy the Vision concept won't see production. If S650 has a similar flavour, then bring it on! :like:

The problem with that fanciful rendering, like so many of its ilk, is that while it looks "cool" on paper it would likely suck like a Camaro as it would have abysmal outward visibility (if I had to guess).

And just what school might that be, pray tell?

These are the design project done by my fellow classmates for last semester class at Art Center College of Design. It’s not official. Please taken them off, or as least give credit to the designers who made them.

Difficult to give credit when they were initially spotted on a random Facebook Page (without credits). However, if we can get a name and some background we can update and give credit where its due :like:

I'm sorry, I hope I didn't give the impression that I was addressing the credit issue - someone asked which school, so I tried to answer the question, that was all.

I'll take the paint job. Looks like a Corvette/Camaro. I want the Mustang to be sized a little smaller (and thus much lighter) - something in-between an FRS and the current size. Keep the V8, if possible. Certainly the TT V6 EB. That or bring back the Ford Probe and make it f'ing awesome.
