The debut of the 2024 S650 Ford Mustang is approaching quickly, scheduled for September 14. While Ford has planned and organized several events for the exciting reveal, they’re still working on building up the hype even more with a recent update from the various Ford Mustang social media accounts, showcasing the rear decklid and confirmation of a new Mustang GT Performance package.
In the ten-second video, we can see the black GT badge has been redesigned and now features the word “performance,” where the G and the T merge. The backup camera can be also be seen now, which generally gets centered on the trunk lid of a vehicle. Which means that the GT badge in this video is slightly offset to the left, which could imply that there’s another badge to the right that we cannot see. That, or it was placed on wrong.

This isn’t the only badge redesign we’ve seen from Ford, as the iconic Pony Badge has been updated, too for the 2024 Mustang. The result is a more modern look along with a more aggressive design courtesy of chiseled features and more stylized details. In addition, the effects bring about a three-dimensional logo, which fits better with the character of the muscle car.
S650 Ford Mustang: Details
Leaked images show that the S650 Mustang is a design evolution from what we see from the current S550 Mustang, changing less drastically than we’ve seen between previous generations. Interior improvements are expected to align with the times, such as larger infotainment screens, a configurable digital instrument panel screen, improved ergonomics for larger phones and drinks, and upgraded materials. The S650 Mustang will likely be the last muscle car with a V8 combustion engine.
Recent reports have revealed that the hybrid and AWD program for the S650 has been canceled, meaning electrification is no longer on the table for the iconic muscle car for the time being. That’s thanks to the Mustang Mach-E, which has been popular enough to compensate for whatever carbon emissions the next-generation Ford Mustang will produce.
