The original pony car has been around for seven generations and 60 seasons, but I have 

no doubt that this will be the last of them, even if no one at Ford would say it. 

The Ford Mustang won't exist anymore after that. The name won't go away, of course; 

it's already on the bulky Mach-E electric SUV, but as this vehicle reaches its conclusion, 

the V8, rear-drive coupé we all associate with the Mustang will likely be retired for forever.  

first, then at least a suitable goodbye to an all-American hero, and not just for those who would desire one.
