The horse has not only bolted, but is by now well down the track. Photos of the 2015 Ford Mustang leaked yesterday from Autoweek magazine just 36 hours ahead of the car's unveiling in a synchronised global debut in five countries around the world.
And now Time magazine has gifted the internet with even clearer images showing the Mustang exterior and cabin, giving an even better look at the car we'll get here before the endo of 2015, to replace the Falcon as a hero for the local Ford line-up.
The Autoweek spreads have text on the pages, but it's largely unreadable, except a small area that appears to confirm the coming Mustang is 90kg lighter than the current model.
The engine line-up hasn't yet been confirmed but is expected to include a choice of V8, V6 and turbo four-cylinder units -- although we won't know which of those we'll get in Australia until the official reveal on Thursday night.
It's also too early to get confirmation of prices, although Ford is said to be aiming under the $50,000 level for the base model. Stay tuned for more details -- and possibly more leaks.
