No doubt Ford Motor Co.'s biggest news next year is the new 2015 Mustang, which will be launched to help the Blue Oval celebrate the pony car's 50th anniversary.
Automotive News and Autoweek have obtained photos providing the best look yet at the face of the next Mustang.
There are significant changes afoot: Autoweek has been reporting for months the new car could look more like the Evos concept car Ford showed at the 2011 Frankfurt motor show.
Additionally, the sixth-generation Mustang will get independent rear suspension and will be offered with turbocharging -- or EcoBoost, in Fordspeak -- for the first time since the '80s SVO Mustang.
Look for both turbo-fours and -sixes, and we'd be stunned if a V-8 engine wasn't also offered; Automotive News says the four could produce upward of 300 hp.
The new car will be roughly the same size as the outgoing car, and a right-hand-drive model is expected for the United Kingdom and Australia.
We're expecting production to begin in the summer of 2014, so we should be seeing more of these prototypes running around as the year winds down.
