It's apparently just something from a blogger event held last year, thus the Fusion render in the background, and not a recently leaked image. They're all, it seems, design exercises and not leaks.
I really can't wait to see what Ford does with the Mustang. They've always kind of had it on its own from a styling standpoint. I hope it doesn't take too many cues from the Fusion. I mean, I like the Fusion and all, but I really hope they don't intend for the 'Stang to be a Fusion coupe a la BMW 3 and 4 series.

*Edit: And with what Ford is saying the Focus RS will put out with the 2.3l ecoboost, I think 400hp will be easy when its base is 330hp. A decent tune and 3" turbo back should put you close to that 400hp mark, so I would expect the same in the Mustang. But that's just speculation, Ford may release the car with freer flowing components noone knows yet

1966: You missed this one entirely
1969: Mach 1 had a version of it with the duct behind the door (might or might not count for some)
1974: (which you acknowledged)
1987: One might argue that the GT model saw a nod to the design with the side skirt duct just before the rear wheels
1994: I would not qualify this as "barely" having it. Looks pretty prominent to me. (the car pictured is a 95, but same difference)
1999: Very prominent on the New Edge refresh/redesign
2005: Subtle, but its there.
2010: Again, subtle but there.
I argue that it's there through more design cycles than not.
