“It’s just a faster-looking steed,” said George Saridakis, Design manager for the 2011 Mustang. “We wanted to give the Mustang pony a more realistic feel,” said Douglas Gaffka, chief designer for the 2011 Mustang. “We lifted the head to make the pony more proud, tipped the neck into the wind to give it a feeling of greater speed and better balance. It’s more chiselled and more defined and looks more like a wild horse,” Gaffka added. “It’s more realistic in terms of proportion to an actual Mustang.”
