The 2024 Ford Mustang landed on Wednesday signalling the start of the seventh-generation pony car. As with previous presentations, the Blue Oval dropped a few Easter eggs along the way, including an official sketch for a sexy sedan version of the new ‘Stang.
In celebrating the unveiling of the new Mustang, the car manufacturer released a comprehensive gallery of the sports car. Included in this set of images are a host of sketches depicting the Mustang that were created by Ford senior exterior designer Christopher Stevens. Surprisingly, one of these renders depicts a Mustang sedan – or as Europeans would have you call it, a coupe-sedan.
Eagle-eyed CarScoops ready Zack Baumel noticed the Mustang sports sedan sketch in the bottom left corner of the image. It depicts the sports car with an elongated roofline, a pair of small rear doors that form part of the rear wheel arches, and shares many of its sharp design traits with the new Mustang fastback.
Ford itself has not publicized any plans to develop a sedan version of the Mustang but given that it has gone to the trouble of sketching out one, it has obviously given at least some thought to such a vehicle. Furthermore, the existence of the Mustang Mach-E proves that Ford is more than willing to grow the Mustang nameplate and add new body styles.
It is worth noting, however, that the Mustang sedan sketch appears in an image showing a number of different interpretations of the 2024 model, all of which failed to make the cut for the final design. This could mean that the sedan may have also ended up on the chopping block.
CarScoops has reached out to Ford regarding the possibility of a seventh-gen Mustang-based model and will update this story if and when we hear back.
As for the 2024 Ford Mustang fastback we’ve seen live at the Detroit Auto Show, the carmaker has confirmed that it will be offered with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder and a 5.0-liter naturally-aspirated Coyote V8. Horsepower and torque figures for these engines haven’t been announced but Ford says they have been upgraded for the new model.
