The end of an era is near. No, the Ford
Mustang isn’t going anywhere, but its solid rear axle is. We all know good and well that when the all-new 2014.5/2015 Mustang premieres next March at New York, it’ll have for the first time an independent rear suspension. Purists likely won’t be happy, but hey, at least the old 'Stang will live as a RWD, V8-powered muscle car. But the Shelby GT500, that absolutely wonderful Ford-built, 662 horsepower hunk of metal and raw manliness, will be discontinued.
