The first 1,000 next-generation Mustangs built will be 2014.5 model year vehicles, apparently. Why? Because the first Mustang was a 1964.5 model, and this is its 50th anniversary.

Those 1,000 2014.5 models will be anniversary edition cars, reports Mustangs Daily, with the rest of the new Mustang's first-year run to be 2015 models. If that proves true, what will it mean?

For the unlucky who can't get in on one of those instant-classic 2014.5 models, fear not: there are no performance upgrades for the 50th anniversary edition.

That's not to say the whole Mustang range won't see a performance upgrade, with a new turbo 2.3-liter four-cylinder expected as well as an upgraded 5.0-liter V-8.
