2015 Ford Mustang Platform Could Spawn More RWD Vehicles

Ford is redesigning their sixth-generation Mustang to be offered as a fastback coupe and convertible, and will even be exported to Australia as a right-hand drive model. Just as exciting is what the 2015 Mustang could mean for Ford’s future product portfolio. And according to Ford Vice President of Product Development for Asia Pacific and Africa Trevor Worthington, the Mustang’s new platform could “presumably” spawn new models.

Worthington said their Mustang proclamation’s unique vehicle construction could spawn new vehicles, according to a report from Australia’s Motoring.

“I mean if you’ve got something…. designed to do what this car is designed to do or use it for something else, if you wanted [you could],” said Worthington. Smaller, zippier cars like the Toyota GT86 (Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ) come to mind, as does a much-needed RWD Lincoln model.

That said, Worthington went on record to say that there are no current plans to develop other vehicles. Perhaps that will change in the future.
