The report suggest that the next Ford Mustang’s body will closely resemble that of the Evos Concept.
Why the change? Ford wants to appeal to Generation Y consumers and that’s because by 2020, Gen Y will represent as much as 40 percent of the car-buying market.
In 2011, sales of the Ford Mustang fell 4 percent to 70,438 units. However, during the first quarter of 2012, Ford sold 20,133 units of the Mustang, a 31 percent jump over the first three months of 2011 (but still below the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Charger).
