Prototypes for a redesigned Ford Mustang began surfacing not too long ago and our newest spy shots display a very likely tester for the seventh-generation ‘Stang’s convertible entire body design.
In contrast to prior prototypes, the new tester is significantly far more heavily camouflaged, specifically close to its roof part. The profile of the roof is also diverse, becoming significantly closer to that of the existing Mustang Convertible.
Will not anticipate Ford to shake issues up with the redesigned Mustang Convertible’s roof. Count on there becoming a retractable soft-leading tucked below all that camouflage gear.
The redesigned Mustang, code-named the S650 (the existing Mustang is the S550), was initially considered to be arriving this 12 months as a 2023 model. It really is now considered to be arriving in 2023 as a 2024 model.

The extended-awaited hybrid alternative that was initially promised to be launched close to 2020 is also anticipated to be launched on the redesigned Mustang. The hybrid will most very likely pair the five.-liter V-eight with a single or probably far more electrical motors.
There are rumors that there could be an electrical motor at every axle to type an all-wheel-drive method. There is also anticipated to be adequate battery capability for a modest electrical variety. Hopefully excess weight is not an situation since the existing Mustang GT with a guide transmission presently weighs a hefty three,743 lbs.
Keep tuned for updates as improvement continues.
