Ford Gt
AUG
27

The ford GT is a car that holds a special place in my heart. It may not be the fastest or most meneuverable around but if you combine its for and its function they are probably the only perfect example of it on the planet. When the first ford GT40 rolled off because of henry fords temper with ferrari no body but ford believed they would place 1 2 3 against the world greatest racing team first year out of the box. Then continue you to beat them the next 3 years. No one in history has EVER done that before or since in such a divine way. For a car to be so fundamentaly perfect that when re-made it looked like a carbon copy of the original to the untrained eye is nothing to sniff at. Not even the mercedes gul wing was able to pull that off. The VW bug is kind of a contender BUT the interior is not liek the original and so are other fundamental body cues. . But i do know ford won 4 times and the first tiem it won it was 1 2 3. (history may be slightly off i felt it was cheating if i didnt go off the top of my head. And the 1966 for gt not the 2006 but they dont have the 1966 up there.

The changes Ford has made in the last few years have been very smart but I feel like there's room to play in the Mid-Size Sedan performance market. GM unveiled the Chevrolet SS a few months ago, however, I feel like they completely over did it and made a product people just can't afford. Ford could compete in this market and beat the competition by having svt modify the current Fusion. The 3.5L V6 ecoboost used in the V6 would be perfect. That kind of power in a smaller, lower to the ground, and lighter car would be a phenominal fit. Ford has done a good job with their I4 ecoboosts but I perfonally feel like the Fusion is more deserving of a V6 ecoboost like the Taurus. The Fusion certainly doesn't need 2 different I4 ecoboost engines. That just doesn't make any sense. Also, I'd love to see a return of a rwd sedan. I'd prefer to see it in the Taurus but I think it's currently too cramped and bulky. Maybe the next one. Like the Chevy SS, the performance based Fusion should be rwd. Ford had great success with rwd sedans in Australia, although they sported a beefier 5.0 V8. Many people prefer awd and fwd but I personally love the muscular and vintage style handling of rwd. If a performance Fusion such as this were to be made I'd like to see it wear a "GT" badge. "Sport" was alright but boring and simple. "ST" is cool but already has a reputation with Focus and Fiesta fwd compacts. Ford has a good recipe for the Fusion, but they're just not appealing to their performance fan base with the current model. The ecoboost I4s just aren't enough. Chaning the current Fusion to have a rwd option sound like a lot of work with probably little value in return. At the very least it would be nice to see the 3.5L V6 ecoobost engine available with other obvious performance upgrades.
