Big thanks to Jalopnik.com for releasing these new 2015 Mustang “test mule” pictures. From the pictures you can clearly see the lower control arms of an IRS (independent rear suspension) system on this test Stang. You can also see the rear bumper has been cut/hacked up. It is safe to assume that this is to clear a redesigned exhaust system that has to be routed around the IRS system.
This just works as probably another form of confirmation for what we all know: The next Mustang is 100% getting an Independent Rear Suspension after an entire life with a Solid Rear Axle (but for a tiny period of IRS time with the Cobra).

While it's wrapped up in the body of a 2013 Mustang, we've been told it's actually a 2015 Mustang and it appears to match up with this vehicle shown in Car & Driver.

Some other notable things to point out is the fact the license plate state this is a “MANUFACTURER” car which only further validates the fact this is a Ford test car. With the Mustang 50th Anniversary around the corner I know it won’t be long until we see more official pictures and details about this redesigned Stang.

Stay tuned as we're going to pull the cover off this thing and show you what she looks like underneath.
I am new to the Ford game. I have been a Chevy man all my life ad just recently bought a 1992 Mustang LX convertible with the 5.0 engine. Found this site and bought several items so far. Everything was shipped promptly and arrived in good condition. I am finding out what everyone loves about LateModelRestoration. Great products at great prices. Only problem is I am spending too much money at this time, my wife is tired of me telling her about the things I am doing with the Mustang. She said she feels like the "other" woman now. I sure have enjoyed working on engines again, I didn't realize how much I missed it. Think I may just stay with Ford power after this experience, definitely be buying more products from LateModelRestoration.
