When a car has been around for nearly 50 years, like the Ford Mustang, it is bound to go through many generational styling changes. In most cases, it will also be the subject of several design studies and concepts that never make it to the auto show stage. With the 2015 Ford Mustang just days away, we though it would be a good time to look back on some of those concepts that most of the world never got to see. Now, some of these are better than others. There are some we wish some would have taken the place of the Mustangs that actually debuted. Here are eight of them, in chronological order. -- Jake Lingeman
