It is one of the most loved and hated cars on Autoblog.com – the Ford Mustang, particularly the latest generation produced from 2005-2009 known as the S197. Its proponents rave about its bang for the buck and handsome retro looks, while retractors nag about the ancient solid rear axle and cheap interior. Whatever your opinion, no one can deny that the latest generation of Mustangs has been incredibly popular, both with consumers as well as the aftermarket. Perhaps too popular, according to many of you. It seems that a new version of the Mustang surfaces weekly and sometimes even daily. Whether from big time manufacturers like ROUSH, Saleen and Shelby, or simply one-off "special edition" Mustangs built by random companies looking to make a quick buck, there has never been a shortage of Mustangs from which to choose.

With the new 2010 Mustang's official debut at the LA Auto Show just a few weeks away, it looks like the sun is setting on the current generation of Ford's pony car and its never-ending stream of variations. To commemorate its passing, and because it's been way too long since we had a Mustang post (at least a day!), we've decided to come up with a list of every single variant of the 2005-2009 Mustang that we could find... all of them. Follow the jump to see just how many Mustang variants were produced over the last four years.

      All they needed was just the Bullit, Shelby, GT and base models.

      I don't think anybody on Autoblog truly hates the Mustang itself, a lot of people just find it meh but get irritated by the nonstop custom jobs you guys put up of it.

      And the obnoxious hype surrounding it constantly.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I'll take a Parnelli Jones or Dan Gurney special, please.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Oh wow, I almost forgot about the Ugliest Mustang Ever. I guess that nightmare won't fade.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I quite agree. I used to like Mustangs. The Challenger is the only member of the current batch of Fat American cars that I have any affinity for.

      • 6 Years Ago
      dont forget the latest...

      Shelby Terlingua Mustang - Need for Speed Edition
      • 6 Years Ago

      Soon we we will be seeing the comparison tests in the various magazines. Mustang Vs Camaro Vs Challenger. Will be sort of like the sixties once again.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I for one love seeing the mustang articles.
      I don't necessarily like all the variants, but i do like reading about them.
      Keep them coming, it's better than reading about prius's

      Griggs racing also builds the GR40 series of Mustangs equipped with their (expensive) strip-out-the-factory-suspension handling packages: http://www.gr40.com/

      From their site it looks as if they focus much more heavily on the car's weight and cornering ability than on tack-on body kits or bolt-on HP boosters.

      I agree, I hate the retro "thing". Too me, it represents a complete lack of design imagination...I can even hear the meeting at Ford:

      "Well, we clearly arn't talented enough to continue evolving the Mustang."

      "Hey, I know...lets take a design that was old 30-35 years ago, round the edges a bit, and call it "retro"."

      "Yeah...and people will thing we are brilliant when in reality...we have no talent and the best we can do is a knock off of a 35 year old design."


      And the interior...OMG, I have seen better interiors in Kias and Yugos.

      I say, we get the Euro Focus, Mondeo, and Kuga...and they can have the Mustang. Trade one horrible car for three good ones.
      • 6 Years Ago
      The haters make me laugh.

      The interior could use a good update after a few years without one, but its not THAT bad. Geez, the design is pretty cool and the materials are not as bad as people make it out to be.

      The solid axle is fine. It's lighter and less expensive. There's no difference except if you go road-racing, and even then its still pretty good. Sounds like the positives outweigh the negatives. In fact, most people wouldn't even know the Mustang has a solid axle if they didn't read it somewhere.

        You're absolutely right, but the numb steering hides alot of the rear-axel crazyness when driving normal. Imagine if you had responsive steering like from a BMW or even the new Cobalt SS (yes, I know it's FWD) AND couple that to a LRA. Good or bad, that would be interesting...

      I would take a Terlingua in a heart beat... Then the Dan Gurney...

      But still not a huge fan of the car.
