Quotes

Dave Pericak, Chief Engineer for 2015 Ford Mustang, Ford Motor Company: ...I think people are more than willing to walk out on a limb, even if they think that limb might break, if they know that you're gonna be there to catch them.

How the 2015 Mustang was created over five years, plus history of the Mustang over 50 years, plus history of the company
17 February 2016 | by ljleejohnsSee all my reviews

Ford Mustangs have always been "blue-collar" sports/muscle cars, that unique American blend of high performance at a price most new-car buyers can afford. "A Faster Horse" documents the people and history of this amazing American icon, especially those who worked since 2009 on developing the 2015 Mustang, the generation 6 model that sold like hotcakes around the world and took on expensive European sports cars without embarrassment but at a fraction of their cost. The film concentrates on the people who made the the 2015 Mustang possible, and, as such, it is full of human interest and considerable drama in the workplace and on the track. The film's human portraits result in much more than an extended promo for a wonderful 2015 automobile that achieves a perfect balance of speed, acceleration, handling, suspension, comfort, and affordability, thanks to the bright ideas and hard work of a large team of dedicated people who battled their way to this American balance of forces and costs.
