2015 Ford Mustang face revealed in new spy photos

The design of the upcoming 2015 Ford Mustang may be one of the biggest mysteries in automotive history, and Ford has done their due diligence in keeping it a secret by heavily camouflaging all of their prototypes. Several spy photographers have managed to catch various prototypes out on the street, but they have all been so disguised that all of the styling elements are completely hidden. Until now.

Spy photography outlet KGP managed to catch the front end of the design of the 2015 Mustang after shadowing a Ford engineering team for several days. Their hard work paid off, as some of the camouflage was eventually removed for cooling tests in the hot weather. The resulting photos reveal much of the styling of the front end including the upper and lower grille, the fog light housings as well as the outline of the headlights. Amazingly, the design is fairly close to many of the recent renderings from the likes of Car and Driver and Car Scoops.

    Sound off: Are you a fan of Ford’s global grille on the new Mustang, or does it look too much like Fusion and Taurus?

  • Santos says:

    looks like an 04 Cobra and a 14 Shelby had a baby

  • Carl says:

    take it out to the pasture and shoot it!!! go back to the drawing board

  • el Gato says:

    Brave new styling from Ford designer, verymuch like wht the have done for the original Ford Mustang back in the 60′s staying retro isn’t a good idea

  • BillC says:

    Nice looking car but, doesn’t look like a Stang. Was hoping they’d keep to the retro look of the 64-65 model as is in the Car Scoops rendering. Now, I could buy that car! This one here…..I’m disappointed.

    Brad……using the new corporate grille on the Mustang was always going to be risky. If Ford had launched the Mustang first, then Fiesta/Fusion/Focus later, everyone would LOVE it. As Mustang is one of the last to get it, it looks like Mustang is copying the rest of the brand. But the fact is, this grille looks right at home on the Mustang. Give it time and people will come to appreciate the new design for the leap forward Mustang needed (and that comes from the owner of an ’05 GT who LOVES the retro look!).

    It’s sleek and sexy. An Aston Mustang for the masses ;)

    Santos – you hit the nail on the head, sir! I thought they were NOT going retro…. looks like retro is 99-04…

    I like it! It does resemble and Aston, Twin Turbo.

    Judging by the grille alone it looks like pretty much everything else outhere.

    The thing I love about classic stangs 65-73 and the retro 05-14 is that they look different from everything else. I love the new Camaro because it looks retro and agressive. You can’t mistake it for anything else.

    I have a feeling though, that this might not be the final front end design. I wouldn’t think that Ford would reveal the front end like this, even for testing, for all the world to see. Also, the grille looks like hastly moldeded fiberglass. Like they just threw something together to put on the front. The hood doesn’t look like it sits right where it meets the grille either. I’m not saying it is or isn’t, but I would not be surprised if the final production was different than what we see here.
