Mustang6g.com believes that it has unlocked start date for 2015 Ford Mustang production citing a Ford dealer communiqué. According to the report, job one on the 2015 hardtop will allegedly start in just a few days, on July 14, although units that are known as "OK to Buy" won't enter production until September 9. The cars built between those dates are most likely final pre-production cars for the executive test fleet, and will likely include the cars we'll be driving at the media launch.

Sun worshippers, meanwhile, would seem to have a longer wait. Job one on the droptop supposedly isn't slated to start until September 14, with production models starting on October 27. As is the case with the hardtop, these final pre-pros are for the execs and media to test, while actual dealer orders will come from vehicles made after the October date.

After speaking to Ford, though, we wouldn't put a great deal of stock in those dates as reported. We reached out to Said Deep, Ford's North American Product Communications Manager.

"There are multiple build schedules for any product that we build," Deep told Autoblog. "We don't recognize any of those dates."

While it's a virtual certainty that Ford is actively building pre-production Mustangs (your author spotted an uncovered, fully badged 2015 GT Convertible just yesterday), it doesn't seem like we're going to hear about the first consumer examples until they roll down the line at the Ford factory in Flat Rock, MI.

      That's OK, take your time to get the kinks worked out. I'll wait, I might even wait for a 2016 for any first-year bugs to get sorted out. The performance, looks, value and "fun-to-drive" quotient are worth waiting for!

      Was down in the keys a couple weeks ago. They were filming the gt commercial on the 7 mile bridge. It was yellow.

        Looks are subjective, as are opinions, I think it looks amazing and blows the Camaro/Challenger/Japanese competition out of the water just on looks/upgraded interior, completely let alone the amazing performance with the amazing 5.0 engine and new IRS

      GT version looks nice and aggressive! I had a chance to drive 2012 GT 5.0 for 1 week and it was fun to drive.

      One thing i like about living in the Lansing, MI area is being able to see these pre-production cars on the roads. i have seen more than one 2015 Mustang, and a Challenger Hellcat at Tim Hortons. Not to mention all the Cadillac CTS, ATS's that are built right down the road from my office.

        Couldn't agree more. Really, anywhere in southeastern Michigan, you have a really good chance of running into something that is still in development (both foreign and domestic). For a gearhead, it's one of the cooler things about living around Detroit.

          For sure. Living off Outer Drive here in Dearborn, I see all sorts of camo'd and uncamo'd mules. New SVT S550's roll down the drive with regularity. Pretty awesome to see.

      Great time of the year that Ford selected to build RWD performance vehicles, just in time for the winter where you don't use these cars in many states. Also they dragged their feet so long on this production that I didn't want to wait much longer, not to mention the distinct lack of much needed facts like engine outputs, and not letting media outlets to test production models fully. This has been an epic fail on Ford's part here, which they are usually good with. Such a stupid decision. Better luck getting my money next time Ford.

        I was going to tell you that I think most people would agree they'd be willing to wait for something they really want, especially a big purchase like a car, but I think you're trolling so I'll just distill my response to a "lol". I don't think they'll have any problem getting people to give them money for this car.

      I don't know why Ford is still being so coy about some details involving the Mustang, it's been on display since December. Release the final specs and start date already.
