The 2015 Mustang will deliver America's favorite sports car to the global market. That said, loyalists are growing concerned about their beloved pony car. Gone is the ain't-broke-don't-fix-it live rear axle, and in comes an uncharacteristically itty-bitty Ecoboost 4-cylinder engine. In fact, rumors suggest diesel and hybrid Mustang variants may be in store as well. Has the Ford Mustang lost its quarter-mile soul? Thankfully, Ford's answer is a resounding no in the form of a novel technology called "electronic burnout control."

Years ago, supercars offered launch control to allow drivers achieve the quickest acceleration from a standstill. Think of "burnout control" as the exact opposite, computers will enabling your 2015 Ford Mustang to spin its rear wheels in perfect reckless abandon.

The specifics of the 2015 Mustang burnout control system is unknown as Ford is keeping details on burnout control close to chest. A variety of systems will after to act at the same time to execute a burnout. According to Motor Authority, the system may involve line locking the front brakes, disabling traction control, and clutch dumping the vehicle at ideal revs.

But why did Ford bother to introduce burnout control anyway? After all, it's a little too juvenile for a big automaker to spend millions in order to develop. There are two theories for this. First, perhaps Ford has finally grown to accept that 99.99 percent of all Mustangs will do burnouts in its lifetime. At least Ford's burnout control can help less experienced drivers perform it the right way. The second theory is for racing. Racing slicks for drag racing require intense amounts of heat in order to reach its operating temperature for maximum grip for acceleration.
