The 1996 Mustang came as a 2 door coupe or convertible and in a basic V6, GT V8, or high performance SVT Cobra V8 model. Major style changes included vertical barred tail lights and a larger hood cowl for the SVT Cobra's new modular engine. Both the GT and Cobra got this new 4.6L V8 modular engine. A new color named Mystic made its debut in 1996 on the SVT Cobra, a color which changed from purple to green to gold depending on the lighting.
