Ford Mustangs do a lot of things. They do decent 0-to-60 times. They do really fast 0-to-60 times. They drive in big circles. They screech down drag strips like supersonic prehistoric birds. They frighten onlookers at Cars and Coffee. They honor famous movies. And, sometimes, they even try to go to the movies.
There’s a new Ford Mustang Cobra Jet, now with 5.2 liters of engine in addition to its 3.0-liters of Whipple supercharger, powerful enough to send this thing down the quarter mile in the mid eights, as Ford declared this morning. It’s expensive, but it’s also exclusive.
On April 15, 1964, 22-year-old Gail Wise parted with $3,447.50 and became the first person in history to own a Ford Mustang. For 15 years, she and her husband Tom used the convertible to drive their young family around until one day, the car just died. For 27 years after that, the vehicle sat, and thoughts of selling…
The Ford Fusion is on its way out in the North American market, meaning it doesn’t make sense for Ford to keep running a Fusion-wrapped rear-wheel-drive V8 on the track every weekend in NASCAR’s top series. Ford’s bringing in the Mustang, which there are actually 10 million of, to take its place next year.
Ford said this week that it has made 10 million Mustangs, across 54 years and six generations of one of America’s most iconic muscle cars. Ford gave no word on whether this was the result of a head-to-head battle to produce more Mustangs than onlookers can produce jokes about them peeling out of Cars and Coffee.
Does Bullitt still matter? Fifty years since it came out, is the detective thriller—oozing with Steve McQueen’s quiet, simmering brand of cool and famous for its groundbreaking centerpiece car chase scene—relevant to the young buyers the Ford Mustang once had a monopoly on? After a hot lap of San Francisco in the 2019…
The car from Roborace, an upcoming autonomous, electric series, successfully ran the Goodwood Festival of Speed hillclimb without ramming nearby objects. The same cannot be said for the autonomous 1965 Ford Mustang that attempted Goodwood, perhaps scientifically proving that Mustangs will be Mustangs.
Ah, the myriad joys of a vintage car: the feel of the wheel wriggling in your hands, the sound of the engine as you blip the throttle. Now Siemens is looking to remove all of that with a self-driving 1965 Ford Mustang that it plans to run up the famous Goodwood Hillclimb this year.
The 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 is being shown off today at the M1 Concourse racetrack in Pontiac, Michigan. While it’s a lot like the outgoing model year car, Ford says it offers some important track-oriented upgrades.
“LOOK OUT WORLD! HERE COMES FORD!” The jubilant musical cast of this 1982 Ford Mustang commercial was onto something with this, for sure. It’s as if the writers of this bizarrely prescient jingle could see the Mustang’s future marred by many embarrassing Cars and Coffee wipe-outs. Have a listen!
Kia’s Stinger GT is remarkably similar to Ford’s Mustang GT in that they’re fun to drive, about the same price, similarly beautiful, and pretty darn close on the drag strip. Given ideal conditions and an ideal driver, the Mustang GT will eke out a victory in the quarter mile, but as has been proven before, and again…
When you conceive a project that involves the design genius Henrik Fisker, the customization know-how of Galpin Auto Sports, and a car as iconic as the Ford Mustang GT, you’re off to a good start. Even more so when you add a 725 horsepower supercharged V8 engine. On paper, the VLF Rocket—driven heroically by Jeremy…
We know that the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will be the most powerful ever with over 700 horsepower. We know this because Ford told us. We also know it because it has a hood vent of startling proportion, as befitting a vehicle of such performance.
Lava from the Kilauea volcano has been creeping across Hawaii’s Big Island for days now, after the Los Angeles Times reports that volcanic instability began last Monday. On its slow but destructive path, the lava has consumed more than 26 homes, affected 1,800 residents and swallowed an abandoned Ford Mustang.
The Ford Fusion, Focus, C-Max, Taurus, and Fiesta—all on the way out in North America as Ford transitions its lineup to one that is all but entirely dominated by SUVs, crossovers and trucks, the automaker announced today.
