2024 Ford Mustang Cars & Coffee Edition Officially Debuts

The 2024 Ford Mustang is the modern interpretation of a long running formula that adds substantial horsepower to a reasonably priced vehicle. This built-in Mustang feature has caused a lot of agita over the decades, including a fair number of crashes and overall misuse of public roads. With the advent of social media and smart phones, documentation of vehicular stupidity (and lack of driving skills) can reach millions of eyeballs in record fast time, which is why notable collisions outside car shows and events involving Mustangs appear online regularly. Unfortunately, the Mustang has earned a reputation for being a vehicle show attendees probably want to steer clear of at their local Cars & Coffee-type events, with the pony car recently being banned from Cars & Coffee events. Fortunately, the 2024 Ford Mustang Cars & Coffee Edition is here to fix that – and to give these owners an outlet to drive wild without any real life consequences.

S650 Ford Mustang with Cars & Coffee Virtual Reality Mode activated

Key to this special Mustang is the inclusion of cutting-edge projection technology and a special Sync 4 infotainment system with updated graphics. Together, the tech utilizes the windshield as a screen and is capable of producing astonishing scenes indistinguishable from real life. While this revolutionary tech could be used for many things, in this application, it will allow owners of the 2024 Ford Mustang Cars & Coffee Edition to recklessly leave the car show of their choice without consequences.

Drivers can use the steering wheel, pedals, and gear selectors just as they would on an actual drive, and the Mustang will use its engine to mimic real-world conditions as well, so long as the vehicle is in Park and the park brake is activated. Additionally, the complimentary FordPass Connect modem and subscription service allows owners to share their mishaps in real time.

“This will be the greatest vehicle vs. pedestrian virtual experience to exist until Grand Theft Auto 6 arrives next year,” said Ford CEO Tim Barley. “With this tech, people will continue to think that Mustang drivers are leaving their local car meets with impunity, when they’re really doing the right thing and keeping it stationary.”

2024 Ford Mustang Cars & Coffee Edition owners will also get rewarded for using the tech at an actual car meet. If the event lines up with information in Ford’s databases, owners will receive 100 FordPass Rewards for using the feature at a car show, which can be used toward a meal at a Ford Garage restaurant. And to make sure the coffee aspect of the special edition isn’t ignored, every example will offer Ford Pro Power Onboard with 1,000 kWh capability embedded into each trunk via 120-volt and 240-volt power outlets.

“You’ll be able to whip up a latte or cappuccino in record time before virtually power sliding into a crowd full of onlookers” said Ford spokesperson, Spike Ravine.

So far, the Ford Mustang Edition Cars & Coffee Edition will be available only for the 2024 model year, but Ford says it will consider extending production into 2025 based on demand.
