The 1993 Ford Mustang represented the final year of the "Fox" based Mustang model. Beginning in 1994 Ford used the SN95 body style which would feature a more sleek and modern body style.

However, to many Fox Mustang enthusiasts the 1993 Mustang was a glorious final year as Ford re-introduced the Mustang Cobra to the lineup. As in previous years the 1993 Mustang was early identical to all 1987 to 1992 Mustangs.

The exterior of the Mustang remains unchanged from the 1992 model. However, Ford did introduce some new colors including Electric Red, Bright Blue Clearcoat Metallic, Royal Blue Clearcoat Metallic, Reef Blue Clearcoat Metallic, Silver Clearcoat Metallic. The wheels were again the 16 inch style "Pony" wheels fitted with Goodyear Gatorback tires.

As in the 1992 year, Ford introduced offered a special Mustang model known as the "Limited Edition". The car was based on a 5.0L LX convertible which featured a yellow or white exterior with color keyed bumpers and mirrors, white or chrome Pony wheels, and white interior. Few of these models were produced making them an instant collectable.
