The suggested retail price of an example is GBP 138,000 ($189,573), plus on-the-road charges.

Somehow I think the orders will not flood in.

Will they put T-5 on it to sell it in the US? Ford owns the name and has licensed it to SA for their use on 2 seat sports cars.

Is there such a thing as a manual shift EV?  ???

I was referring to the copyright problem Ford had selling Mustangs in Germany: https://www.hagerty.com/media/car-profiles/german-for-mustang/

These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs.It's jolted by every pebble on the road

Is the manual transmission still a T5? I thought it's a 6 now? It's made in Germany?

There is a way to fix all this you know.
1. Anyone who does not pay tax or are a net tax drain does not get the right to vote.
2. If you are not a property owner, you do not get the right to vote and by property meaning a minimum of a car that you maintain and pay gas to run.
3. If you are not required to sign up for selective service (I did when I moved here and had no issues with it) to defend the country you do not get the right to vote.
4. If you do not know how to balance a "checkbook" you do not get the right to vote.
5. If your constant siren song is equality of outcome, you do not get the right to vote.
6. Administration of an IQ test before allowing you to vote and having a minimum baseline.
7. Also a civics test before voting and maybe a pole tax of a few dollars to cast a ballot would not hurt either.

Once this deadwood and detritus is cleared away, let the best candidate and/ or party run and win (whoever that might be and I think we already know the answer to that question.)

THEN, we can work on bringing business back to the USA and rebuilding the backbone of this country.

These are just random thoughts I submit.  Not saying these are my thoughts.  Not saying these are not my thoughts.  Just throwing some ideas out there.  Not all of you will agree and hey, I never said all of my ideas were good.

I like your thoughts

Too harsh?  You should have seen me during my University of Toronto days in the 1980s.  I wasn't exactly popular particularly given my area of study was political science.  My colleagues and professors thought I was from another time and another place, if not another planet.

With all the Technology out there, why is it that all these new Companies now building Electric Cars only make it where their Cars only go 100 to 150 Miles per Charge instead of the 350 to 450 Miles per Charge like the bigger Companies are doing.  For what they charge for the Car you would think it would go 450 Miles.

Yes, you're right, Shelbydoug. I retract my former statement.

Yes, you're right, Shelbydoug. Political beliefs have a certain genetic component to them such as certain beliefs are the result of a larger amygdala, right? No one can help that or change it.  Therefore, I retract my former statement.

You're not burning any bridges with me Shelbydoug. I happen to like you.

This seems to be an invitation or maybe a challenge to discuss or debate political philosophies here? I thought it was clear that was not to be permitted on this Forum?

Now personally I do realize that there is a lot of frustration out there and to some, there is no other place to express it then here. So I recently I've tried to give a lot of space to others to blow off steam, but are you serious? You want to debate here?
I don't think that is a wise decision.

Personally I'm trying to let this go but I can't guaranty it will remain that way. YOU are opening a major can of worms here.

A very big +1.  This forum is about cars not politics.
