The history of the Mustang and the build to it’s current specification is revealed in the documentary, A Faster Horse, now available on Netflix.

Ever wonder what it takes to build just one car? Imagine how much tougher it is to build a car with a legacy attached.  The Ford Mustang is an All-American car.  People can harken back to the 1960’s, and if there is one vehicle that sticks out, it is the Mustang.  The Ford Mustang has a racing heritage as well.

This documentary talks about what it’s like to build an all-new Mustang while staying true to its’ roots.

The documentary briefly walks through each of the six redesigns and shows how much of a group effort it takes from Ford.  Design teams, marketing teams, and engineering teams all collaborate to make one great final product design.
