Rumor: 2015 Mustang Sketches Show Aston Martin Like Appearance?

Mustang fans around the world are searching on a daily basis, trying to find a glimpse of what the upcoming 2015 model will look like as well as details on the “new” Mustang. We’ve been reading rumors for at least a year now, and looking at artist renderings, some by so called experts, some just by individuals.

Perhaps the strongest indicators came from the EVOS concept and some of Ford’s recent vehicles which utilize the Kinetic design language. We also know that the retro look is going to be out. While the car will doubt retain it’s long hood and short deck appearance that has been a design hallmark since the first Mustang went on sale, it will no doubt share little else aside from badging in terms of design with current or past cars.

We recently came across an article with these two sketches. The source claimed that he had seen a few concept drawings of the 2015 Mustang. He then reproduced them as best he could from memory and of course immediately shared them. The drawings would seem to suggest the heavy EVOS/Kinetic design language. They also include the short deck, long front look the car is known for. Also of interest is the dramatically close appearance to the Aston Martin Vanquish. Ford owned Aston for a time and it’s often been said the new Fusion has the look of an Aston Martin. That lends at least a small amount of credibility to the claims.

Is this the direction that Ford is heading with the 2015 Mustang? We’re not sure, and of course there is no way to solidly confirm the artists claims. Ford has been extremely secretive on the design aspects of the new car, leaving us all to speculate. It could be anyone’s guess, we’ll find out who was right and who was wrong when we see the official concept debut. Ford has not yet said when that will be.

I hope they dont change the front end to that of the new focus's and fusion's, kinda like the Mitsubishi lancer's. Not a big fan.

In all reality, the current stang does have a larger grille visually.
Sketches usually are exaggerated with the body lines compared to an actual protuction model. Not saying this is the case, but ussually is the norm.

I will comment though on how everything that is popping up on the net on the next generation mustang are all similar to this look.
I'm curious to see if it's all true, and will hold my judgement to when it comes out as an actual production model.

I still can't get into the look of the focus, but the latest Fusion is a good looking little sedan. With that said, I'm not sure I would like the look so much if it was applied to the Mustang...
