When a new muscle car hits the streets, fans hit the internet to rejoice. There are usually tears, heart-eyes emojis and plenty of reaction GIFs. The new 2018 Ford Mustang is no exception; below are some tweets that capture the social media excitement.
The 2018 Ford Mustang GT boasts the ability to hit 60 mph in 4 seconds thanks to 460 horses under the hood and a Drag Strip Mode feature. Those numbers elicit a resounding ...

The 2018 Mustang's starting price of $26,485 including destination will get you a stick-shift coupe with 310 hp and 350 pounds-feet of torque. To achieve maximum drag-strip performance, the V-8 Mustang GT — for another $10,000 — is the ticket.

Just like the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon's launch, the 2018 Mustang's evolution is bringing tears to the eyes of muscle car fans all across the country:

Amid the growing popularity of electric cars, some have speculated that the tide is turning from gas-guzzling muscle cars to plug-in and hybrid sports cars:

Ford announced in April that the Mustang is the best-selling sports car in the world, so it looks like the internal combustion Used Engine isn't going anywhere just yet.
In addition to a tweaked Used Engine and retro pony grille package, the updated 2018 Mustang gets a new color called Orange Fury:

To celebrate the hot new color, Ford partnered with Los Angeles-based ice cream company Coolhaus to launch a limited-edition Orange Fury flavor. Coolhaus handed out free Orange Fury ice cream sandwiches from an ice cream truck tricked out with 2018 Mustang decals in NYC:

While they count down the days until the 2018 model is available in the fall, Mustang lovers can use Ford's configuration tool to create their dream 'Stang. The configuration site was launched on July 25, but one super fan couldn't wait until then and built their own:
