We Render A Potential Ford Mustang Sedan, With Shelby Design Touches

Sponsored

Way back in 2018, word got out that The Blue Oval was thinking about building a four-door Ford Mustang sedan. Just a few weeks later, the automaker reportedly showed a Mustang sedan concept to dealers. After that, things went quiet, until last May, when an unnamed source hinted that this mysterious Ford Mustang sedan was, in fact, still something that FoMoCo was considering. Thus, we decided to take a stab at what a higher-performance Shelby GT500 variant of this theoretical four-door sports car might look like.

Interestingly, adding a pair of doors to the existing GT500 isn’t quite as blasphemous as one might think. They sort of blend in without looking too terribly out of place, and in our opinion, don’t detract from the car’s lines one bit. The shape of the rear doors means that they’re integrated neatly into the rear fenders and follow the shape of the wheel well, which is a nice touch.

Of course, there will be plenty of people that aren’t fans of a four-door version of the Mustang, let alone a Shelby variant. But such a vehicle makes a lot of sense on a number of levels, not the least of which is the fact that Ford currently has zero sedans in its North American lineup. Adding a practical yet sporty version of the pony car that isn’t the Ford Mustang Mach-E could be appealing to a lot of shoppers that simply don’t want a crossover.

Four-door muscle cars aren’t uncommon, either. Just look at the highly successful Dodge Charger for proof of that or the fact that Chevrolet has considered making a four-door version of the Camaro as well. Throw in the plethora of muscular German sedans already on the market, and the idea of a Mustang sedan doesn’t seem so crazy, especially since we know that Ford is working on an all-wheel drive hybrid configuration for the next-gen pony car.

There are a lot of folks that wish Ford would sell some sort of sedan in North America, so why not a Mustang? After all, it’s a model that already enjoys tremendous brand name recognition across the globe, so it seems like a surefire hit. And after that model has a year or two to establish itself, making a higher-performance Shelby model seems like a natural next-step as well.

    THIS THING IS AWFUL. THE CHARGER LOOKS JUST AS BAD. TAKES AWAY FROM THE ORIGINAL DESIGNS. 2 DOOR COUPE, V8 ENGINE,REAR WHEEL DRIVE. 4 DOOR THAT’S FOR RETIRED FOLKS.

      I say they should bring back the Mercury Cougar and make that the 4 door model so that way you get muscle but also 4 doors.

    Do these comments actually get back to Ford..? Ford make a big deal of “conquest sales” (stealing buyers from other brands) and rightly so… !! In my case im not yet retired!! but i have grand kids and a 2 door is a pain but i like some grunt and Ford have nothing. Im Ford to the bone but have been looking at BMW and JAG…this would keep me blue..and at half the price..its a winner…!!

    Ford already built a crossover electric vehicle and named it MUSTANG. A four door Mustang isn’t a shocker. I’m a Charger owner because of the roominess. No kids. I’d buy a Mustang sedan in a heartbeat.

      If you own a Charger then you aren’t a Mustang loyalist, so it isn’t a surprise.

    As if calling an SUV appliance, a Mustang wasn’t god awful enough.

    This story fails to mention they’re NOT messing with the Challenger! Bring back the Fusion, it’s already a 4 dr. Make a high performance variant of it and don’t screw with the OG Mustang! I really don’t mind that they made the “Mach E” . That’s a completely different vehicle and doesn’t disturb the classic Mustang! Don’t be stupid Ford, just like Dodge left the Challenger alone… leave the Classic Mustang ALONE!!!

      Like the idea of bringing back the Fusion, a lot of people that rode in my Fusion wants one. Ford is making a mistake depending on Crossovers. The Fusion won me over the Mustang because it has a family feel to it. Nothing wrong with the Mustang but people will always look over and see some other cars wanna race. bring back the Fusion please. Thanks for writing your reply, bring the Fusion back

    If Ford has any sense, don’t call this a Mustang sedan, bring back the Falcon name instead.

    Great idea. It takes a closeup look to notice the rear doors and it reach another market that Ford is currently missing. A 4-door performance sedan or a sedan period. I hope it not just talk and becomes a reality.
