Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 EV Renderings Look Properly Futuristic

As Ford plans to eventually transition its entire North American lineup to electric power at some undetermined point in the future, that means the days of ICE-powered Ford Mustang models will eventually come to an end, too. Prior rumors suggested that an all-electric pony car will arrive in late 2028 for the 2029 model year, though the Ford Mustang Mach-E already represents the first EV to wear that iconic nameplate. The S650 Mustang will arrive far sooner – for the 2024 model year – and Ford Authority spies recently spotted a next-gen Mustang prototype for the very first time. Regardless, these renderings from artist KDesign AG attempt to apply some modern FoMoCo styling elements to the current-gen model to create a theoretical Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 EV.

These Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 EV renderings incorporate the Mach-E’s front fascia and hood into the now-discontinued track-focused pony car, taking away its front grille and replacing it with a flat, closed-off panel. However, it does have vents in the sides of the front end, as well as a lower grille and a front lip taken from the ICE-powered GT350. The headlights, on the other hand, are a mesh between the Mach-E and the recently revealed next-gen Ford Mondeo, which is a China-only sedan.

That theme continues out back, where these renderings imagine what a Mondeo-like taillight treatment might look like on an S550 Mustang. Truthfully, it fits, considering the fact that both utilize three vertical bars for taillights, though this example also has a light bar that covers the full width of the rear end.

It’s difficult to say what the next-gen 2024 Mustang will look like, given the fact that the prototypes spotted thus far are wearing heavy camo. Regardless, the Mustang is expected to retain the same overall aesthetic as the current model, at least for the near future. But perhaps years from now, when an all-electric Mustang joins the lineup, it might just integrate some of these same styling cues.

    That´s something I would like to see instead of the make beleive Mustang Ford produced with the Mach-e which, to begin with, is NOT a Mustang. I had the opportunity to drive the Mach-e and it´s nothing but a boring SUV with Mustang tail lights, Mustang grille, Mustang badges and Mustang pretentions. it doesn´t feel, drive, handle or even look like a Mustang. If Ford really wants a 4 door EV Mustang, then they need to target something the likes of a Porsche Taycan instead of the make beleive Mustang they produced.

      It’s a Mustang because it’s a Mustang. You don’t have to like it, but you’re literally in denial if you don’t accept it.

        Agreed. The old timers trying to hang on to “what a Mustang is” are just out of touch. Take a look at the Camaro and some of these guys would rather the car die than to change. That’s sad.

          It’s reality. You’ll be old one day and hate change just like they do.

          With age comes wisdom. With that said, you’ll never convince most that that tarted up soccer mom mobile is a Mustang, or even remotely interesting.

      As a “GM fan” you would say that. If Ford sold the Mustang that looks just like that, the current Camaro would have no trouble outsell the Mustang on the sales chart.

    I wonder what Carol Shelby would think of it, or if he would approve of it, if he was still alive, since his name is on it?

      Since it could be argued that Shelby was one of the first four cylinder tuners back in the eighties with Mopar, he knew how to roll with the times and would be trying to figure out how to make that EV faster.

        Yeah, and all of those cars were hot garbage. With that said, sometimes “rolling with the times” isn’t the best idea.

    I think the Mondeo is a handsome car except two parts, the headlights that look like someone took a sawzall to the bumper and the taillights that look like someone ran out of money while designing. These two features do not help this concept in the slightest.

      I totally agree with you ChevroletBixler.

    Sadly, I don’t hate it. The side vents on the front end would need to be reshaped as they just don’t flow well (seem too squared off). But the rear end I would take on the current models with no complaints.

    What makes you believe I WANT an electric Mustang.
    I currently own 2 Shelby mustangs, but will NOT buy an electric one!! Remember the saying is “ the customer is always right?? I will continue to buy gasoline powered cars, even if it happens to be a KIA

    Very disappointed Customer

      A Mustang is not a Mustang without the commanding V8 exhaust note, and preferably manual. I don’t care what anyone tries to say.

      It’s not all about accelerating fast in a straight line. It’s also about character and feel.
