    Looks like Ford is getting closer.

    Queue all those who think "Mustang Inspired" means that's what the new Mustang will be...

    Did these folks cry when the Mustang appropriated the Fusion front end?

    Hmmm...........and if you had been at the Mustang Roundup you might have had an inkling of this before this video hit. Sure just a inkling, but the Blue Oval is busy in many areas that will surprise in the near future!

    I think of a Mustang inspired SUV in the same vein as the Porsche Cayenne inspiration from the 911. No reason that the most popular sports coupe in the World can not have siblings morphed from it's style and character? Nice find and there are some shocking machines to come. Like 302Bob, I will need the roar of a 5.0 or something similar in my garage to meet my visceral desires, but there may be something electrifyingly quiet right next to it.

    Bill. Who is now in charge of EV engineering?

    He has done us right so far. Expect more of the same!

    I will definitely agree that acceleration capability of EVs can be amazing, at least from what I've experienced in the Tesla Model S, and not even one of the high-test varieties. If the battery packs are all located low in the floor, the handling characteristics should be significantly better than a traditional crossover or SUV. Still not wild about this thing having anything to do with Mustang/Mach1 branding but that's another story.

    That seems like a marketing match made in heaven, especially considering focus on the Raptor from a pure-truck performance perspective.

    Lightening would be perfect.

    Electric cars may have superior acceleration but the thought of going 0-60 with no noise doesn't seem so enjoyable to me....:(
