i still remember the day i first heard of the notion of an SUV "behemoth" that would be even bigger than the Suburban... I think it was an issue of Popular Science that had a 5 year product road map...

Considering that Porsche nearly won the 24 hours Nurburgring race with the GT3 Hybrid on its first attempt at an endurance race, I'd say there's some serious performance potential to extract from...

Nothing hoping to compete with gas powered cars in a race that's more than a half hour long should have a plug, at least with current technology. Batteries (let alone flywheels) can't hold nearly as...

I have yet to meet a single non-car-enthusiast who is even aware of the Nissan GT-R. Ford building a monster TT V6 sports car is a waste of time, placating the magazine arm chair racers and forum...

lol, you literally sound like one of the villains in Captain Planet. You hate the Prius, not because it's boring, but because it stands for burning less fuel and putting out less air pollution. I...

and frankly, the GT name is not "hailed", GT40 is, but GT is what they resorted to for legal reasons, and nobody hearing the word "GT" immediately thinks of Ford and only Ford. That said, I think...

why?

Ford would be wasting it's time if they built a halo car that wasn't showing off their mastery of the future of automotive technology. I vote for Ford vs Porsche at LeMans with hybrids.

I don't imagine Ford would try to sell these for much more than the Leaf, so that would suggest $30K, down to $23K if you include the current federal rebate. In terms of specs and size, it doesn't...

also, I should point out that in that first post, where I said I think it looks nicer than the Fit, that was probably comparing it to the old Fit. I think the new Fit actually looks really good, I'd...

lol, that's an old thread! 3.5 years old! Pretty cool to go and look at old stuff like this and see how things turned out in the end. We were just speculating back then as to whether Ford would...
