The very first Ford Mustang, the 1964 model, cost $2,320 and produced 210 horsepower, while coming in at 2,556 pounds. The 2018 Mustang GT produces 460 hp, weighs 3,705 pounds and costs $35,095. There have been a lot of Mustangs in between.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
A lot of us think Ford teased a 2018 Mustang Bullitt in a video earlier this year, and we’ve been sniffing for confirmation of the car since. Mustang fans got riled up again today as a window sticker of a 2018 Mustang Bullitt appeared online, but unfortunately, Ford has confirmed it is not legitimate.
On Friday, video emerged of an orange Mustang slamming into cars and trying to run over pedestrians outside of a school in Las Vegas. The driver, Clay Green, later told police that he’d rammed the vehicle because someone had thrown rocks at his “show car.” Green, who was charged with two counts of attempted murder,…
Raph and I have come to Detroit, America’s Finest City™, and for Detroit, we needed a fine car. So we get a 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R. It’s loud as hell, and comfier than you’d expect. Ask us anything you want about it.
If you’ve been paying attention, cars are actually a pretty big theme in whispery dream-pop artist Lana Del Rey’s music. Her fifth record, Lust For Life, debuted earlier this year. Five songs in will bring you to “White Mustang” which just had its music video uploaded yesterday. There’s just one problem: there is no…
The Ford Mustang threat never went away. It just got quieter, as its owners seemingly got more cautious. But at a car meet in California this weekend, the threat returned, and this time the crowd fought back.
I’m not going to make a dumb Cars and Coffee joke; instead, I’m going to just marvel at the fact that starting this fall, every new base V8 2018 Ford Mustang GT will make 460 horsepower (!!!), and accelerate to 60 in a time that—not too long ago—was exclusively reserved for supercars. Yes, let’s all just enjoy this…
By now everyone in the car world has at least a vague understanding that a turbocharger can efficiently boost power, using otherwise-wasted exhaust gas to force more air into an engine. But it’s still nice to get all of the technical piping and boost management devices mapped out, and it’s cool to see exactly how much…
Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s Mustang is an oddity in professional drifting; his RTR team sets his car up like a dirt track car, though he runs in Formula Drift. It’s called weight jacking and it produces what you see here. The car basically wants to lift a front wheel. Then it wants to wheelie.
The family of Nino Welcome, a seven-year-old boy with Lesch–Nyhan syndrome, awoke just after 3 a.m. to neighbors alerting them that their son’s cherished 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 was engulfed in flames.
Genuinely, I think the toughest part that these two had in fixing up this ‘69 Mach 1 was not getting hantavirus. This car was filled with shit, literally. I assume the poop was why such a desirable car had sat in a Colorado junkyard all these years.
Since summer is hot, just like your brakes while trying to stop a Mustang from fast approaching the nearest curb, there’s now an ice cream to match the color of the car. But it isn’t just cool looking. It has a very practical function: allowing you to tell everyone that, yes, you did eat something other than a wall…
Have you ever felt the need to add some pizzazz to your car on its way to wreck out of Cars and Coffee, even if that style will get all bent up sooner or later? Do you ever wish your Mustang had that little extra style element to denote that it is, in fact, the crash missile in the group? Then the updated Pony Package…
Scanned images from an alleged catalog for the upcoming 2018 Ford Mustang refresh have been leaked, and among the updated factory-installed options are many new looks which mostly just include graphic stripes.
Up until now, if you’ve wanted to smoke your Ford Mustang’s rear tires without roasting your rear brakes, your best bet has been the V8 GT. But now for 2018, Ford is making the Line Lock (“Burnout Mode”) feature standard across the Mustang range. Which is kind of absurd, if you think about it. But in a good way.
How things change! Now people run away from the Mustangs.
Anyone who’s ever spent a while on track has inevitably growled “I will have you, Nemesis!” at the schmuck in front of them. That all comes back to this classic video of a Porsche following a Ford Mustang on track, growling at it in the most metal way possible.
A Ford Mustang was unbelievably split in half after being t-boned by a Mercedes-Benz at an intersection in Palmdale, California, reports Fox 11. According to witnesses, the silver Mustang that sustained the worst damage appeared to be racing a white Mustang before the accident when it couldn’t stop for a red light.
