Ford enthusiasts were sent into a frenzy after CEO Jim Farley teased another new Mustang model on the horizon. As the iconic American “pony car” celebrates its 60th anniversary with its seventh-generation iteration, anticipation is at an all-time high for what Ford has in store for its beloved muscle car.

In a cryptic post on X, Farley shared an intriguing image of a Mustang concealed beneath a mysterious green cover, leaving enthusiasts and speculators excitedly buzzing. While the image reveals little beyond the unmistakable silhouette of the Mustang, eagle-eyed observers noted the tag “RTR Fun 03b,” hinting at the involvement of Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s RTR Vehicles.

For those unfamiliar, RTR (which stands for ‘Ready to Rock’) is renowned for its Mustang upgrade packages, which offer a potent blend of power, aerodynamic enhancements, and aggressive styling cues. The top-tier Spec 2 option from RTR promises significant suspension upgrades, transforming the Mustang into a corner-carving beast. If the upcoming mystery Mustang incorporates even a fraction of RTR’s performance enhancements, we’re in for a thrilling ride.

While Farley’s teaser leaves much to the imagination, speculation is rife among enthusiasts. Some predict an electrified iteration of the Mustang, tapping into the growing trend of electric performance vehicles. Others dare to dream of a revival of iconic names like the Boss 302, igniting nostalgia among fans of classic muscle.

One thing is certain: Ford is ready to stick it to Chevrolet and Dodge with the discontinuation of their two-door V8-powered muscle cars. In recent days, Ford treated 2024 Mustang owners to a retro-inspired theme for the digital gauge cluster via an over-the-air update, adding a dash of nostalgia to the cutting-edge technology. The announcement of the upcoming Mustang Experience Center at Charlotte Motor Speedway in 2025 promises an exciting venue for track time, merchandise shopping, and even special events like weddings.
