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.

It's got a new chief executive, a new engine deal in place with Mercedes-AMG, a new platform under development and - if the new Lagonda sedan is anything to go by - maybe a new design direction in the works. And what do we have h ...
