Just something thrown together... not an official program.

You must have some sort of connection to those Callum fellows.

something like that for the Fusion in the USA would be great.

 

Yes please that would be nice.

 

Nissan has one for their altima sedan, Honda has one for their accord. Would it really cost that much more to add a coupe in the lineup?

I doubt it will happen unless/until Ford adds a 2nd plant for the Fusion triplets. Hermosillo is already near capacity just building sedan variants of the Fusion/Milan/MKZ.

 

On the other side of the coin from the Altima and Accord coupes, Toyota recently axed the Solara due to slow sales. It's a hit or miss market.

I wonder if they're trying to build a case for a Lincoln.

 

MkR?

People who mix in similar circles?

 

Musings by Ford Aus studio but not official....

 

It would be interesting to let the Ford Aus guys off the chain

and see what comes out of the skunk works...

It sure seems a business case for the next gen Mustang, Falcon Coupe, Lincoln MKR & Ford Thunderbird sharing platforms sure could be made. What's the latest on the GRWD platform?

John - I got your message and thought I'd post the reply here since it's appropriate.

 

The designers at the studio whip these up which are then auctioned off once a year (as are many other ideas and activities) for the JDRF charity. These sketches can be for public domain, so in no way represent internal programs.

 

Cheers.

Maybe this will point at a 2014 non-retro Mustang. I have trouble seeing a new Mustang without a retroish theme anymore.

From your lips to God's ears! I wish Ford would make a big coupe again, especially an affordable one. I would love to see a Mustang-based T-Bird. With the 3.7 V6, 5.0 V8, and SC 5.4 V8, such a T-Bird could go toe-to-toe with the only other true musclecar available: the Challenger. The Mustang and Camaro are 2+2 pony cars, not large 5 passenger musclecars.

Ohhh, nice! I personally don't really like the lower end of the orange one's bumper though.

Brilliant!

 

My pref is the lower one. The tail ights are excellent. They are much more dynamic compared to the top car's. The variable angles are always dangerous in a design, but the eye follows the "logic". Point: the inner-most tailight segments. The angle and position of the inside-side of the light segment runs through to the angle point in the spoiler and the roof sculpture-line. Also, the angled resolution of the bottom of the rear window reinforces similar angles and their geometric complements. If there's an area for improvement, it is the back panel, currently with the horizontal bars and the GT logo, and center cap.

 

 

My 2¢ :)

All of these sketches have me absolutely drooling, especially the first blue one. Holy hell would that be hot! The introduction of this car would drive traffic into Ford stores like nothing before. They really should do this one.
