@cochespias leaked the pictures on Instagram, pictures that include a fastback-bodied EcoBoost, a fastback-bodied GT, and a convertible GT. Pictured in gray, the four-pot Mustang is a little bit sharper than the outgoing model. The GT levels up in terms of exterior design with a more serious front grille and a heat extractor in the hood. These styling elements are shared between the fixed-head fastback and the rag-topped convertible.

There are, however, subtle differences between the V8-engined ponies. The convertible appears to be a well-equipped GT with a six-speed manual transmission, black-and-red upholstery, keyless entry and start, a flat-bottom steering wheel, a digital instrument cluster, and a touchscreen infotainment system integrated into the same panel as the instrumentation.

As for the coupe, the only picture of the interior clearly shows Recaro-branded front seats with extra side bolstering. The car’s exterior also flaunts different wheels, blue-painted brake calipers, black badging, black mirror caps, a black-painted roof with a shark-fin antenna, and a black rear wing.

The photos are too low quality to zoom in on the GT badge. Ford has recently teased a GT badge with Performance written into the horizontal line that connects the G to the T. Most likely a go-faster package, the GT Performance may be related to the outgoing GT Performance Package. The $6,700 option consists of many goodies, starting with a larger radiator.

The list of upgrades further includes a K-brace, heavy-duty front springs, a strut tower brace, a Torsen differential with 3.73 rear-axle gearing for the manual or 3.55 for the automatic transmission, unique chassis tuning, unique software tuning for the safety nannies, an upsized rear sway bar, a front splitter, a rear wing, a gauge pack, an aluminum instrument panel, Brembo six-piston front brake calipers in black, 255/40 R19 and 275/40 R19 summer-only tires, and 19- by 9- and 9.5-inch Ebony Black wheels.

It's too early for us to spill out the beans on the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder turbo and 5.0-liter Coyote naturally-aspirated V8. In the meantime, here's a reminder that said engines develop anything from 310 to 332 horsepower and from 450 to 470 horsepower in the outgoing Mustang.LATER EDIT
More photos have been leaked by Evolution Performance, Inc. on Facebook, which reports 500 horsepower from the Coyote V8 thanks to twin 80-millimeter throttle bodies. By comparison, the S550-generation Mach 1 features a single 87-millimeter throttle body from the Shelby GT350.
