The Mustang is a cult classic. Starting from the second half of 1964, it is always there, ready to be purchased, and not for much even in the most extreme trims.

Ford Mustang’s Generations

It is probably one of the most celebrated American cars survived to this day. It has created the ‘pony car’ class of automobiles – sports-car-like coupes with long hoods and short rear decks. Although some other pony cars have seen a revival (the Chevrolet Camaro, for instance), the Mustang is the only original pony car to remain in uninterrupted production over five decades of development and revision.

The first generation lasted from 1965 to 1973; the second generation – from 1974 to 1978; the third generation – from 1979 to 1993; the fourth generation – from 1994 to 2004; the fifth generation – from 2005 to 2014; and the current sixth generation lasts from 2015.

Ford Mustang’s Future

The Mustang is a very successful car. It is still the most popular American sports car in terms of units sold each year. Therefore, it looks like the Mustang is an everlasting model and Ford will not discontinue it in the near future.
