Unveiled in December 2013, the sixth-generation Mustang introduced not only a new design language but also a brand-new platform that features an independent rear suspension for the first time since the pony was launched half a century ago. It also received an updated engine lineup that included a turbocharged, 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine and became the first Mustang to be sold worldwide. For 2015, the Blue Oval launched the Shelby GT350, the first performance-oriented version of the new muscle car and now it seems that a GT500 is underway.
Test mules were spotted outside Ford’s Dearborn development facility in Michigan as early as 2016, but 2017 brings an updated version on public roads. Sporting a number of features that are different from those seen on the GT350, this new prototype comes with many hints that we are indeed looking at a more powerful Mustang. The launch date is a mystery as of this writing, but the new GT500 could make its public debut by the end of 2017. If this proves to be true, the nameplate will return after a four-year hiatus, and Ford will finally have a competitor for the Chevy Camaro ZL1 and even the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.
