2011 Ford Mustang GT Coupe - Click above for high-res image gallery

Automotive News is reporting that Ford will turn to its global team of designers for the look of the next Mustang. Styling themes will be served up from studios in Australia and Europe as well as other places around the world. Ford says that the practice is now standard operating procedure for most of the automaker's new products, and that the global design approach was taken on board three years ago. J Mays, the company's global design chief, and the rest of the vehicle's design team will then select amongst the proposals for the design that best fits the next-generation Pony Car.

In the past, the company's U.S. design studio was solely responsible for the vehicle's image, but Ford has seen plenty of success from soliciting ideas from all over the world. The design of the global Ranger, for example, was submitted by artists in Australia with pointers from the company's designers in Europe.

Right now, Ford is keeping its lips sealed about when we can expect to see the next-gen Mustang touch down, though Automotive News reports that there's some indication that the vehicle may be as far off as 2014 or 2015.
