The 2024 S650 Ford Mustang was just announced, and companies are already clamoring to stuff as much horsepower as they can under the new hood. Whipple is already planning a sixth-generation supercharger for the engine, which would give the new sports car a significant bump in power. The company teased the plans on their Facebook page, showing the image of the new Dark Horse Mustang with smoke billowing off of the rear tires.
Under the hood of the new S650 is the latest version of Ford’s Coyote V8, which continues to displace 5.0-liters, and is expected to produce at least 500 horsepower in the new 2024 Mustang Dark Horse. Apparently, that’s not enough for the folks at Whipple, and we’re assuming that some customers won’t want to wait around for Ford to unveil the next supercharged GT500 model.
While the engine is similar to the outgoing model, Ford has said that the new engine features two individual throttle bodies instead of one to increase power, so it’s possible that Whipple is working around that technology to offer an even greater boost in boost, instead of just using the last generation supercharger on the new engine.
Whipple superchargers have already been used on previous versions of the Mustang including the GT500, with its 5.2-liter Predator V8. Paired with the blower, the sports car made a whopping 760 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque. In its most high-performance guise, a Whipple-equipped Mustang made 900 horsepower in the Hertz GT500. It’s likely based on the Whipple supercharger that’s for the 14th generation Ford F-150 that debut at the 2021 SEMA Show, which works with Ford’s updated electrical architecture.
We’ll be keeping a close eye out for what Whipple has in store, and when we find out all the details, you can read about them here on MC&T.
