Ford Clay Model Guessing Game

Ok, here's a fun one to tide us over until NAIAS is in full swing. Check out this image from a NYT article on Ford and the new Focus. The little white car a Fiesta, and NYT sayes the Work In Progress behind him is a "future Mustang" (Concept). But that leaves 3 mystery cars in this photo. Any guesses?


(Before anyone says it, no one on the far left is NOT a current Taurus. The Butt is all wrong.)

I'll play!

Concept to the left...2011 Focus Sedan
Covered Concept in the middle...New Mustang Variant...Hoping for a BOSS!
Far Concept...The greenhouse has an odd rake to it. I am going to guess a new four-door coupe (similar to new Sonata and CC), possibly off the next gen Fusion platform.

These are obviously pure speculation, but a guy can dream!

I hope the picture on the wall is the new RWD Interceptor (police only), 4 door, 400hp, built off of the S197 platform!!

Props on calling the Focus. 2011 or 2012 you still called it. You are 1 for three so far with 2 to go.

Look familiar?

I dunno if the car underneath the clay is any indication but the rear brakes on that clay model are huge.





Also not sure why the roof has a notch mustang looks to it. Its obviously not a standard coupe roof. Maybe a hardtop convertible model? Seems odd to have huge brakes like a performance model if they are going with vert even if it is a hard top one.

Or it could be another concept that will never see production?

Is it me or does this car look substantially smaller than an S197? I do remember that there were rumblings of the NextGen Stang being smaller.

You're right, it looks much smaller than the current Mustang.
