2014 - 2017

The Mustang is one of the best-known vehicles from the blue-oval brand. In 2014, the sixth generation of the original pony-car was launched and it was the first Mustang to be sold worldwide. The history of the Mustang goes back to '60s when John Oros, a designer who's parents emigrated from Transilvania (Romania) draw the concept and won the internal design challenge with his team. In 1964 the first final model rolled out the factory and started its life as the 1964 ½ model. The rest was history. Mr. Oros passed away in 2012, but his design concept lived on in the 2014 mode...

2012 - 2014

The Shelby Mustang was for Ford something even more important than the AMG for the Mercedes-Benz. It was the name that helped Ford to win the LeMans race. And it was an important badge ever since. After two decades since the launch of the original SVT Mustang Cobra, the American car-maker launched a new, mean, convertible machine. It was built to blast around on the racetrack in week-end races and cruise around nice and proud as well. On top of that, the silver Cobra logo on its grille told the bystanders that it wasn't a regular Mustang. The Mustang Cobra was a car to be respect...

2009 - 2013

After 45 years on the market, the Mustang was still the king of the pony-cars and managed to attract many buyers into Ford's showrooms around the world. Ever since its first generation, the Mustang was available with a rag-top option. While its coupe or fastback version was meant for performance and speed, the open-top version was about styling. Ford offered the Mustang with a folding fabric roof, and its customers appreciated it more than the practical metallic roof. Ford introduced the fifth Mustang generation in 2005 and, after four years, it brought a facelifted version. It wa...

2009 - 2012

When Ford and Caroll Shelby joined their forces to built the GT500, the blue-oval carmaker decided to offer the car as a coupe and a convertible as well. In 2004, Ford successfully introduced the fifth generation of the Mustang. After forty years, the original pony-car was famous once again. This time, the design was right, and its retro-styling was the key to get to the customer's wallets. While the car was available with less-powered versions, in the beginning, the GT500 was a promise for thrills and surprises, which were brought either as a fastback coupe or a convertible. The ...

2004 - 2008

The 2004 Mustang was a true revival of the original model, launched four decades before it. Ford unveiled it in late 2004 as a 2005 model-year. Despite being produced less than the Model-T or the F-Series, the Mustang was one of the best known Ford of all times. After some shady generations, especially the second and third (Fox-body), the fifth generation took its inspiration from the original model and started the retro-design trend. Like the original Mustang, the 2005 model featured two round headlights at the front. The GT version's grille was enhanced with another pair of roun...

1998 - 2004

Ford introduced the facelifted fourth generation of the Mustang Cabriolet in December 1998, just in time for those who had to get all the money to buy it for the next open-top season. The facelifted version showed such a radical change that some considered it as a new generation. But Ford stated that it was just a facelift, a major one. The Mustang SN-99 (fourth-generation facelift) abandoned the bio-design lines and embraced the new-edge-design styling for starters. Its sharp-looking headlights with precise cuts and angular-looking grille were a big departure from its predecessor'...

1964 - 1973

The first generation of the Mustang gained a worldwide cult-car status, and the convertible version became a hit just as much as the fastback version. The original pony-car and the wild horse badge on its grille helped the car be recognized at a glance. Ford designed the Mustang for the younger generation. It was available either as a three-box sedan coupe grocery-getter with a six-cylinder under the hood or with a big V8 engine that could tear-up the tarmac and impress your friends. Regardless of the engine choice, the Mustang was a highly customizable vehicle. The top-down version fe...
