Ever since Ford filed a trademark application for the "Mach 1" name, Mustang fans have been eager to find out if the beloved car would be making a comeback and have dreamt about what an updated version would look like. The guys over at TopSpeed took inspiration from the original 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 and created these renderings of what could be in the near future (we hope). The design features a big splitter up front with the vertical-bar Mustang logo on the grille, a large rear spoiler, quad exhaust, rocker panel, and hood stripes. 

TopSpeed went beyond the renderings and also predicted the performance of the Mach 1. For those details and more about the design choices, follow the link at the bottom.
