Reports this month that Ford's new Mustang will move away from the current car's retro styling have lead to talk of the Evos concept evolving into the next pony.

According to the Wall Street Journal, unnamed sources at Ford have confirmed a styling connection to the popular concept, along with the new Mondeo sedan that it spawned.

The report claims that while the sixth-generation 'Stang will contine with the familiar shark-nosed grille and round headlights, the car's overall look is "almost a body double for the Evos concept".

The concept has already been touted by Ford design boss J Mays as the future of the brand's styling, but the Mustang has historically carried only the most basic design connection to its siblings.

Ford will be looking to the future-focused styling of the new model to boost Mustang sales, with the car's record annual total of 166,530 in 2006 dwarfing last year's 70,438 sales.

The new coupe is expected to debut sometime in 2014, in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Mustang line.

I don't mind it...but what's with the squinting head lights with recent designs?

I hope so :) I agree with phongus, not a fan of the 'there's something in my eye' looking headlights.

Just when they have really gotten back to that aggressive look that a mustang is they want to go to this?? its not a bad looking car, but looking at it i would not be able to tell this is a mustang, and i think that's what defines what a mustang truely is, with one look everyone knows them and this has just taken that away! not a fan!!
