      I saw a post elsewhere on the internet of Ford looking to hire engineers to test the upcoming 2023 Mustang S650.

      What do we know about this car? I heard it will be based on the new Explorer underpinnings.

      The internet has already proven it'll either be mid engined, or on a FWD platform shared with Mazda.

      The new Mustang is sure to be on the CD6 architecture, i.e. new Explorer. It is sure to share general layout, suspension-steering-brake parts, and numerous bits and pieces with the Explorer.

      And I was really hoping it was going to be a little smaller and lighter...

      Well, the new one is call S650 for a reason... it's not going to be CD6.

      The CD6 Mustang was cancelled so Ford can concentrate on making more CUVs. The S650 will be an evolution of current S550 platform.

      What we know is that the base model will probably continue to be some sort of I4 turbo (possibly with optional 48V assist) and there will likely be a V8 hybrid which is also happening with F-150.

      S650, CD6, and F-150 will all share the same set of longitude drivetrain packages so in theory any new powertrain choice in the F-150 debuting later this year could find its way into S650 Mustang or CD6 Explorer and vice versa e.g. 3.3 V6 hybrid from Explorer is almost certain to be available in 2021 F-150, and the 5.0 V8 hybrid for F-150 will probably end up in Mustang etc.

      I wouldn't be surprised to see a V8 hybrid done as a Shelby model.

      To address another point in this thread, I don't think there's much hope of seeing smaller or lighter so long as Ford continues to utilize its existing V8 engine family; they're big and necessitate a lot of car around them.

      I just hope they address its abysmal packaging efficiency. It should either be smaller or roomier as the 2 series is both

      Yes, because people buy Mustangs and its competitors for their packaging efficiency.

      How roomy is a 2 series with a huge V8?

      If there are any hybrid powertrain components, then that means that Ford will be going IMSA/DPi racing in the very near future.

      It's probably going to be pretty close. BMW doesn't release information about the physical dimensions, but the B58 is around the same size as the 2JZ.

      5.0L DOHC Coyote
      28" Length
      26" Height
      27.5" Wide

      2JZ-GTE
      31" Length
      27" Height
      30" Wide

      I have no idea why the packaging is so terrible on the Mustang. I still remember when we were shopping the Golf R against the M2 and Mustang GT. We were expecting the Mustang to feel cavernous after testing the other two cars and instead were shocked to find it felt less spacious and had worse visibility.
