2015 Ford Mustang Production Could Begin Much Later Than Expected
The 1964 Ford Mustang was introduced at the New York World’s Fair on April 17th 1964 and was available for purchase the next day (with one actually sold before the car was introduced) so with the 2015 Ford Mustang marking the 50th anniversary of the fabled pony car, many believed that the new S550 Mustang would be available for sale on or around April 17th 2014…50 years after the original. Unfortunately, information from a leaked dealership document that was posted on the S550 enthusiast site Mustang 6G.com suggests that not only will hopeful 2015 Mustang owners not be picking their cars up in April – they may not be picking them up until much later in the year.
According to Mustang6G.com member chesney28, the 2015 Ford Mustang will not official go on sale until May 13th 2014 and production scheduling for those pre-ordered Mustangs will begin about a month later on June 12th. Production for the 2015 Ford Mustang is scheduled to begin – and hold onto your hats for this one – on August 11th 2014. Provided that the various quality control processes take about a month, this 2015 Mustang schedule would suggest that buyers won’t be getting their hands on one until sometime in mid September. Depending on how many pre-orders the company gets, a prospective buyer may not be able to walk in, buy and drive out a 2015 Ford Mustang until sometime during the fourth quarter of the 2014 calendar. In other words…many new Mustang owners might be buying their new muscle car just in time to put it away for the winter.
