I always wondered why the 94-98 mustangs were called sn95's, so for Christmas, my wife bought me the book MUSTANG: Forty years by Randy Leffingwell. Cost was $50, or $80 can for you northern folk, but she works at a book store and therefore gets a good discount. Any way SN95 stands for, according to this book, "S" for specialty, and "N" for North American Automotive Operations-those responsible for the primary design of our beloved ponies. It was given this title to track it's prototype and pre-production status. Pretty cool...This book focuses more on the pre 94 cars though and does a pretty through job at that, so if any of you are bored one day, I'd say that its a pretty interesting read. It even has a segment on some Saleen cop cars over in Seal Beach CA.

So, if we are SN95's what are the 99-04 models designated as?

They don't have a designation for some reason, I guess they probably appeared to the director of the mustang project in a dream or something, all fully designed and ready to go :dunno:.

94-04 are SN95 I belive. But the SN95 name is basically has been taken over by 94-98 and thats what they go by, people tend to call 99-04 the New Edge mustang.
