Only one car has consistently dominated the muscle-car marketplace and reinvented the genre with each new generation: the Ford Mustang. Since the Mustang marked the birth of the pony-car genre, there has been an annual battle for the muscle-car throne. Many American performance cars have come and gone. Some - such as Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro - have remained competitive, but only one has consistently dominated the marketplace and reinvented the genre with each new generation: the Ford Mustang. For nearly 50 years, Mustang has remained Ford's most distinctive and emotional presence on the streets and byways of America. To maintain its throne, Ford has developed an all-new Mustang for the 2015 model year to coincide with the legendary pony car's 50th anniversary, and Ford Mustang 2015 tells the inside story of the creation of this latest generation. Author John M. Clor, communications manager for Ford's Special Vehicle Team, offers a completely unrestricted view of the design and production process, including access to Ford's own imagery not available anywhere else. A necessary read for any Mustang enthusiast or muscle-car fan, Ford Mustang 2015 is your comprehensive guide to Ford's all-new, sixth-generation pony car.
