I found this article on CarBodyDesign.com

Ford post-kinetic design

Ford Design Chief John Mays has revealed that at the Detroit Motor Show the company will unveil a new model which will give indication on the new post-kinetic global design language.

In an interview with Automotive News, Ford Vice President of Design John Mays has revealed that the new design language will be an evolution of the Kinetic concept. The new formal language will be simpler and more elegant while keeping the key aspects of the design philosophy first introduced with the Iosis concept in 2005.
According to Motor Authority, the new model could be the 2010 Taurus.

Check the date on that Knight, that is actually a Concept Sketch for the Ford Iosis Concept that became the production Mondeo.



















It's a Shame they get this and We're stuck with the Fusion.

OK, I gotta say it. This...



...is a far cry from this...



Just build the damned Iosis already, call it a Taurus, and watch sales go through the roof as every other carmaker turns green with envy.

Front looks good. Side and back look a bit frumpy. And we'll never get those cool wheels.

Together, all that =

Not a fan. Front end looks like a combination of previous Mazda 6 and current Honda Accord.

Meh, I gotta say the Mondeo did a really good job of translating concept to production car, to the point that in some respects (front end treatment), I find the Mondeo better looking. The Iosis has nice proportions, nice profile and cool tapering of the greenhouse at the back over a strong shoulder, but I think the Mondeo looks better, less garish.

Maybe the wheel fairies within FMC have seen the light and will offer "cool" wheels for all . . . . . . . or at least on a SHO/ST.
