Ford Will Produce a Limited Number of 2014 1/2 Mustangs

Jul 19 2013, 1:30pm CDT | by

Only 1000 units will be produced

If you're a fan of America's original pony car, the Ford Mustang, you'll know that a new version of the car is in the works for 2015. To mark the 50th anniversary of the pony car, Ford has confirmed that the first 1000 next-generation Mustangs will be sold as 2014 1/2 models.

That is a throwback to the original Mustang being sold as a 1964 1/2 model. “The 2014 ½ will be the 50th Anniversary edition,” a Ford representative stated. “It will be added to production for a limited run sometime during the year.” She later retracted the statement, saying,” Okay, we made a mistake. We misunderstood the information and we’re sorry for causing all this confusion.”

The 2014 1/2 Mustang will be the first Mustang to use the new S550 platform. Each of the 1000 limited edition units will reportedly have a special VIN number and build number. Sadly, the special edition Mustangs won't offer any additional performance compared to the normal 2015 model.

We love sleepers here at MotorAuthority. The idea of taking something that looks relatively sedate, yet hides a power-packed secret is infinitely appealing to us. And since it seems to be truck week over here, we're happy to share a vehicle that nearly serves as a definition of the word sleeper. Up for sale courtesy of Highli ...

2015 Lincoln Navigator First Drive

Sep 16 2014 8:09am CDT | Source: Truck Trend

The 2015 Lincoln Navigator luxury SUV has been redesigned and modernized, but how well does it perform on the road?“You said the F-word!” That was shouted at me by one of the legions of Lincoln PR people shipped down to Louisville, Kentucky, for the launch of the pretty majorly refreshed 2015 Lincoln Navigator. I’d been trying to ask if we would be seeing the new Navigator’s excellent engine in any other products, like, say, the upcoming all-new ...

Video: XCar Reviews the Donkervoort D8 GTO

Sep 16 2014 1:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

We’re all familiar with today’s Caterham Seven or the Lotus-badged, simpler sports car that preceded it. It’s a pure driver’s car suitable for both public roads and tracks, although it’s not exactly the vehicle you’d want to drive to work on a daily basis. However, if you need a no-nonsense sports car in your life, you can’t go wrong with the Seven.You can have anything from a Suzuki-sourced, 660cc to a 2.0-liter Duratec engine under the hood. That gives it an output r ...
