A prototype for the next-generation Mustang was spotted while out for a test drive this week by fan forum website Mustang6g.com.

The company dressed the new vehicle in black camouflage for its joyride outside of Ford's development center in Allen Park, Michigan.

The 2015 model will reportedly come with an independent rear suspension, and a ton of new features including an updated engine.

Updated versions of the previously used 5.0-L V8, 3.7-L V6, and 2.3-L are expected according to Mustang6g.

An inside source was able to confirm to MustangsDaily earlier this year that Ford will change the platform name and will call their new Mustang the S550 instead of the S197 used for the fifth generation model.

Ford confirmed last summer that the newest Mustang would be a two-door coupe, but has confirmed barely anything besides that.

Ford has yet to officially say when they'll be unveiling the new mustang, but Mustangs Daily is claiming one should be finished by next spring. If this is true, the company could officially unveil the 2015 model at next April's New York Auto Show.

The 2014 New York Auto Show will also mark the 50th anniversary of the original Mustang's debut according to Ford, so it would only make sense to have a new model on hand for the anniversary.
