Between a bevy of spy shots, speculative renders and insidery images from the halls of Car and Driver, we've got a pretty decent idea of what the 2015 Ford Mustang might look like. Still, we're excited to see the real deal as soon as possible.

Turns out that Ford has told us just when that first official look might come, too, although it has chosen somewhat of a backdoor fashion for dropping the news.

The video below popped up on the Ford Mustang YouTube channel this morning, promoting a social media effort called #MustangInspires on. The video and hashtag ask fans of the pony car to share pictures of the car – or "photographic stories of inspiration" – on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. But the truly interesting part of the video description is that which mentions taking "the cover off the all-new Mustang" on December 5. Consider our calendars marked.

UPDATE: Ford has officially confirmed December 5, further adding that the reveal will be staged at 12:01am (Eastern, presumably) in six cities on four continents – those cities include Dearborn, New York City, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Shanghai and Sydney. Read more in the statement below.

Hello,

After weeks (and months... maybe even years) of speculation about the 2015 Mustang, we finally have some information to share with you!

The all-new 2015 Mustang will be revealed at 12:01am on December 5, 2013. The debut of the Mustang will take place simultaneously in six cities on four continents: Dearborn, MI; New York, NY; Los Angeles, CA; Barcelona, Spain, Shanghai, China; and Sydney, Australia.

Leading up to the reveal of the Mustang, Ford has teamed up with Facebook and Instagram for a 15-day countdown to the launch of the new car. During this countdown, fans will be encouraged to share their Mustang stories on social media. There will also be a series of fifteen Instagram videos released leading up to the reveal, one per day. Please see the attached release for more information.

      Boy will it be nice when we never have to see that amateurish blue rendering again.

        I've done dozens better than that "amateurish" one since then. i don't know why they keep using that one. Took a while for me to find the sweet spot and render it. Check out the work I put into it and see if you still think it is amateurish by the end of the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLFyiZl62Hg

      I hope they keep their promise by making it smaller and lighter.

        I hope it looks just like the rendering in that video. That sleek profile is just plain sexy and a breath of fresh air from all of the bulbous shaped cuvs, economy cars, sport compacts, and city cars out there these days.

          That is exactly the same model I used to render the splash page image

        That is the the best looking render I have seen! I hope it looks like that than this pic above. I'm trying not to get too excited!!

      I'm a lifelong fan of muscle cars -- especially the mustang -- and I'm the proud owner of a 2008 GT. Just saw the reveal of the 2015 Mustang… and I gotta say… Ford did a perfect job… I LOVE it! This might just be the best mustang ever. Gorgeous car… updated to 21st century aesthetics, but it retains the classic look at the same time. Beautiful. I was worried what it would turn into, but worries are over… it's perfect! Great job Ford.

      I can dig keeping the looks similar, while updating the suspension and interior.

      Ive always been a Mustang fan until 2010. Ive had a 99 35th anni silver one, and a Zinc yellow(best yellow ever!) 2002. Loved them both. However, I refuse to to touch anything from 2010 up. With the massive amount of black plastic on the 10-12 that cheapened the look, to the hunk of shiny black plastic that scratches too easily on the current(along with its massive gaps in the hood and paint jobs uncle Joe could hve done better), I sadly stopped being a fan. The Mustang has been ruined the last 4 years, and this me too look of the front end seals the deal I will still not be a fan. It's sad ya know, the Mustang and Camaro have always been good looking(minus the mustang II of course), but the latest update to the Camaro is just blah and the new Fusion coupe, excuse me, Mustang, ugly.

        sure; just keep touching the lousier 90's era body colored plastic that scratched way easier than the 2010's+. The '99 you had and '03 I had weren't terrible cars but they were basically fox bodies; the S197 is a marked improvement in every single way.

          I never had a single issue with paint coming off. And even if it did, id rather have scratches then faded tacky plastic. Must I remind you of the avalanche, expedition, etc with this garbage on it?

        I own a 96, 04 and 2011 Mustang GT. I won't even bother responding to your comment, just please slap yourself.

          You just did genius. Have fun with that fading plastic! :) hope you didnt get the chinese built transmission!

        So you stopped liking them just when they became truly good cars?

          They uglified the 2010 and added a failing stick shift transmission. The black plastic was a bad move, quickly corrected. The interior was improved greatly and I do like that part. But when I see wide gaps between the hood and fender, along with paint that dripped and dried on the edge of the fender of a 30k plus Mustang, no thanks. My 99 and 02 may not have been the quickest, but the interior held up well, the exterior was void of cheap unpainted plastics, the car looked good, and the paint was applied correctly.

        You mean the same 99 and 2002 Mustang that you couldn't put air nor heat on both your face and feet at the same time?!?! You mean the same base v6 Mustang that barely managed over 200hp?? I owned a 2001 Mustang. The 99-2004 Mustang wasn't a bad car, but to consider it a better car than the current one is just ludicrous!

        My 2012 has no faded plastic on it. I live in Florida, its stored outside, and I have over 30K miles on it. The manual transmission is great. Quick shifts with no play in the shifter. Its a great reliable car. No issues with it either. Its never had any work on it except the oil being changed every 10K miles. The 99 and 02 models were fine but were basically a fox body with improved styling. The interiors left a lot to be desired. Even in my base V6 with only the performance pack option on it looks nice inside. Also the power, handling, and fuel economy are fantastic. Something no previous v6 mustang owner could ever say.

        Chrome yellow was better. Zinc yellow was too "pastel"

          Zinc wasnt pastel at all trust me, I am no fan of pastel yellow my friend! It was a perfect balance between dark and light yellow.

      I am rather underwhelmed with this. Side profile is relatively the same. The front was changed though. It just looks cleaner and more modern thats about it. big whoop

        This is just one of many many renders floating around. And not one that carried a significant amount of support.
