Click above for high-res gallery of 2010 Ford Mustang spy shots

Can you believe we've assembled five galleries so far of 2010 Ford Mustang spy shots? This is our sixth, and the pics contained show the pony car's derriere largely uncovered. Spy photographers caught the convertible with its pants down just long enough to capture an uncluttered view of the Mustang's new taillights. They contain three large vertical rectangular elements separated by two long, thin white elements. Modern Mustang taillights have always incorporated "threes", which harkens back to the original Mustang that first sported three long taillights per side. We also learn from these spy pics that the Mustang 'vert will be dropping its raised spoiler in favor of a decklid spoiler that's more integrated with the rear trunk lid rather than sitting above it. Finally, the large, round rear Mustang badge that's notched on current models appears to have met a belt sander and now features smooth edges all the way around. Can't wait for the seventh gallery of Mustang spy shots!

      That camo reminds me of a WWII German tank

      Oh whoopie . . . gee . . . the next Mustang really looks 'new' and 'different' (zzzzzzz). Wake me when Ford decides to come-up with something worth getting excited over.

      the taillights were fine, why change them? why not build one with an interior and IRS...? but no, the money goes into the uglification of the taillights...
        • 6 Years Ago
        well yeah, I'm just saying i don't like the new ones and i loved the old ones, and I'd be all over the car if it had IRS. Otherwise it is a great car
        • 6 Years Ago
        yeah, Those new tail lights cost as much as an IRS would have.

        Not to mention that Mustang buyers are split on the IRS issue.

      I'll wait for the post about the front left fender.
      • 6 Years Ago
      personally, i cant stand the tail lights...i hope they dont make production
        • 6 Years Ago
        i concur. those are repulsive. aren't the designers smart enough to play DOWN the bargain basement nature of this car?!
      • 6 Years Ago
      the inner 2 sections of the taillight are flopped sections from the other side. you can even see the cut line.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Why not use the taillight design from the original Mustang concept back in 2003, i believe. those were awesome..

      "...This is our sixth, and the pics contained show the pony car's derriere largely uncovered...."

      Except for the camo paint...and the huge black bumper mask covering the entire lower-rear of the car. Good job Audoblog...this sure looks completely revealed to me!

      I'm still waiting for it to have Couger/Shelby/CS tail lights like from the concept that ushered in the 2005 model. I thought thouse looked really good.

        I am planning on ordering a 2009 Dodge Challenger or Chrysler 'Cuda Convertible with the 6.1 Hemi. I understand that Sublime, Plum Crazy, Torred, Hemi Orange, Go Mango and Top Banana are on tap. The interior is excellent, and even features a rear center seat fold down armrest, soft buttery leather and rear seat headrests. I saw many spy shots. They both look terrific. I liked the 2008 Mustang, but the 2009 looks lumpy.

      2010 Mustang is looking like "Change for the sake of change."

      the gimicky chrome headlights, and these over-wide tail lights with white strips inserted between them... (presumably reverse inboard, and amber turn outboard)

      The rest just looks like a current mustang dressed up in camouflage to make it look like something might be changed.

      woo-woo, the interior gets new vents and a taller center stack, so that it can actually fit a real double-din NAV setup that isn't miles out of the driver's viewing angle.

      This looks uninspired, and incremental just because they have to do something, so might as well stir the pot a bit.

      No wonder Ford has no vision left. They have no idea where they are going, let alone where they NEED to be going.

      what a snore. I used to like Ford, A LOT! All of my previous cars were Fords, and I was a HUGE Mustang FREAK. Until I started really looking at other performance cars, more than 10 years ago.

      Now, they build nothing remotely compelling to someone who is not utterly brand-loyal, and entertains the possibility of buying a car from some other company.

      Guys, ever heard of a tape and decal job? Just because we see these on the prototypes doesn't mean that they are production spec.

      Also: did anyone notice that the taillights don't go up with the trunk (you can see the cutline if you look closely.) Good job Ford you've made an impractical car even less practical.
