First Ford Tried to Ruin the Mach 1 Name, Now It Wants to Ruin the Skyline Name

First Ford Tried to Ruin the Mach 1 Name, Now It Wants to Ruin the Skyline Name

Skyline is supposed to bring fond memories of certain Nissan cars, but soon that could change

One could easily argue that the Skyline name belongs to Nissan. It brings back memories of cars like the 1957 Nissan Prince Skyline and, more importantly, cars like the R32, R33, and R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R – the godfather of Godzilla itself, the current Nissan GT-R. The name has been kept alive in certain markets as a sports sedan – the same car we call the Infiniti Q50 here in the States, and now it seems a new Skyline could be coming the U.S. market. The catch? If it happens, It’s not going to wear a Nissan badge but a Ford or Lincoln badge instead.

What a Mid-Engine C8 Corvette Rival From Ford Needs To Have In Order To Stand a Chance

What a Mid-Engine C8 Corvette Rival From Ford Needs To Have In Order To Stand a Chance

A new Thunderbird might give the C8 Corvette trouble, but it needs to have a few aces up its sleeve in order to stand a chance.

The Ford vs Chevy rivalry is one of the oldest and biggest in automotive history. The two American carmakers have been going at it, across the lineup for decades. We have the Mustang vs Camaro, F-Series vs Silverado, and Bronco vs Trailblazer, but before all of those there was the Thunderbird vs C1 Corvette. And guess what, the Thunderbird wiped the floor with the Corvette, in the 1950s, outselling it 23 to 1.

What If Ford Slapped The Thunderbird Name On A Mid-Engined Competitor to the Chevy C8 Corvette?

What If Ford Slapped The Thunderbird Name On A Mid-Engined Competitor to the Chevy C8 Corvette?

Ford might be cooking up a new mid-engined car, and that means the C8 Corvette could be in danger

Ford versus Chevrolet is one of the most epic automotive rivalries we’ve come to witness. You’re probably familiar with the Mustang vs Camaro, or F-Series vs Silverado rivalries, but now an even older Ford vs Chevy rivalry could be resurrected. The mid-engine C8 Corvette is currently GM’s pride and joy and Ford doesn’t have anything to compete against it. At least not at this price range, as the Ford GT is way more expensive and produced in much lower numbers. However, it seems this might change very soon, as the Blue Oval was spotted testing a C8 on their home turf, in Dearborn.

Is The Lexus RC-F Track Edition Any Better Than The Mustang Mach-1?

The RC-F Track Edition is over $40,000 more expensive than the Mach-1, but features similar engine specs

Amidst all the buzz surrounding electrification, the guys at TheStraightPipes brought in two muscle cars for an epic V-8 showdown. Well, one of them is a true-blue American muscle, but the other is a Japanese. But, before we discount it, this car has managed to hold its fort in a segment ruled by the Mustang, the Challenger, and the Camaro. I’m talking about the Lexus RC-F.

The folks at the channel compared the Lexus RC-F Track Edition with the Mustang Mach-1 in various aspects. Which one do you think came out looking better?

The Ford Thunder - Everything You Didn't Know And Why You've Never Heard Of It

The Ford Thunder - Everything You Didn’t Know And Why You’ve Never Heard Of It

Ford SVT Thunder Expedition is the performance SUV Ford never made

Before the Ford Raptor stole the show, as Ford’s go-to performance pick-up truck, there was the Ford F150 SVT Lightning. The first-generation SVT Lightning came in 1993 and inspired other manufacturers to build their own performance pick-up trucks. In 1999, the second generation Lightning came and this is where things get interesting. At the time of the second-generation F-150 Lightning, SVT (Special Vehicles Team) worked on an SUV version of the pick-up truck. It was the Ford SVT Thunder Expedition. Sadly, it never made it to production, but that doesn’t stop us from telling you all we know about it.

Great Alternatives to the Volkswagen Golf GTI

Great Alternatives to the Volkswagen Golf GTI

Can the Volkswagen Golf GTI still manage in the increasingly crowded hot hatch market?

The Volkswagen Golf GTI is considered the forefather of the hot hatch segment. The first Golf GTI was introduced in June 1976 and has been going strong ever since. Nowadays, the Golf GTI is in its eighth generation and is still one of the best all-around performers in the segment. It’s also sold both in Europe and North America, which is not something that can be said for all the cars on the list. With that being said, the modern hot hatch scene is as dynamic as ever and many new contenders for the best hot hatch title. Here are some of the best alternatives that aim to de-throne the GTI.

We’re Willing To Bet There’s a Secret or Two That You Don’t Know About The Ford GT Heritage Edition

How many supercars come with secret cupholders?

The Ford GT is one of the most interesting supercars in the market, and it’s not just because of all the things we already know about it. The GT is also loaded with plenty of easter eggs that can only be discovered once an owner takes delivery of the car. Supercar collector Manny Khoshbin recently received his GT Heritage Edition, and the first thing he did with it was create a walkaround video with a Ford delivery specialist to learn all of the GT’s secrets.

2021 Ford GT Le Mansory

2021 Ford GT Le Mansory

It’s just as wild as the first one

For the second time in less than a year, Mansory is dropping jaws to the floor with a new iteration of its Le Mansory program for the Ford GT. The German tuner is known for its over-the-top cosmetic upgrades, and, once again, it lived up to the billing. The second Ford GT Le Mansory packs the same design changes as the first model, albeit dressed in a new red and black colorway. Mansory has said that it plans to build three units of the GT Le Mansory. With this being the second of those three units, the third and final model should be just as wild.

By 2028 The Ford Mustang Could Be An All-Electric Coupe

By 2028 The Ford Mustang Could Be An All-Electric Coupe

Cyclone, EcoBoost, Voodoo, and Predator will be history in Mustang’s books

When Ford unveiled its first electric SUV, the Mach-E, with ‘Mustang’ in it, people lost their minds. The pony badge belongs to a rich heritage of loud, roaring muscle cars that has built a legacy of its own over the decades. Many of us kind of accepted it since it was a new model with the Mustang badge and not a replacement.

However, this new report has ticked us off again. According to Autoline Daily, the Mustang is going to go all-electric starting 2028. Nope, it won’t be sold alongside the regular, rear-wheel-drive, V-8-powered pony. It will be the end of an era. I’m not crying, you’re crying.

Video of the Day: BMW M2 vs. Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

Video of the Day: BMW M2 vs. Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

If you were to run a BMW M2 against a Shelby GT350, which do you think would win? Well, throttle house decided to do just that and put them through the paces on the track and in a drag race to see which one was actually better. In one corner, the BMW M2 is capable of putting out 365 horsepower and a sprint to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, thanks to a 3.0-liter inline-six. In the other corner, we have the Ford Shelby Mustang GT350 that pumps out 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque from a 5.2-liter V-8. On paper, the Mustang should kill the M2 all day long running a cylinder down. But, it’s not always so cut and dry as you’ll see in the video below. Go ahead and click play, then sit back and enjoy the action!

This 600-Horsepower Ford Falcon XR6 Comes From Sleeperville

This 600-Horsepower Ford Falcon XR6 Comes From Sleeperville

Here’s why you don’t need a V-8 engine to drive a brutal sedan

Back in 2016, Ford ended production at its Victoria-based plant in Australia, a decision that also put an end to the Falcon, a local nameplate that was first introduced in 1960. With more than 50 decades on the market, the Falcon was extremely popular in Australia, where it competed against another iconic local car, the Holden Commodore, built by GM. Both were discontinued, and both are dearly missed. But Australian streets are still packed with Ford Falcons, and while some are downright mundane, some of them have been turned into high-performance sleepers. FastLowLoud just showcased an XR6 Turbo model that cranks out a whopping 600 horsepower.

Awesome Car for Sale: Ultra-Rare 1985 Ford Sierra RS Cosworth

Awesome Car for Sale: Ultra-Rare 1985 Ford Sierra RS Cosworth

This pre-production example is a genuine time capsule to the ’80s

The Ford Sierra RS Cosworth has been rising in popularity over these last few years to the point that some ultra-clean examples have traded hands for over $120,000 and this may become one of the most expensive examples ever sold.

That’s because this blue Cossie is the last remaining road-legal survivor of a batch of 10 pre-production cars made by Ford to test and tune what would become one of the most legendary cars ever to be adorned by the FoMoCo badge. Those 204 horses may not seem like much today but we’ll assure you the towering rear wing is bound to turn more heads today than many modern sports cars.

Ford Actually Believes That the Focus ST Is Better Than the Volkswagen Golf GTI

Ford Actually Believes That the Focus ST Is Better Than the Volkswagen Golf GTI

But will it become more popular than the best-selling Golf GTI?

Ford has been working to dethrone the Volkswagen Golf GTI with the Focus ST for more than a decade now. Needless to say, it wasn’t exactly successful at it, as the Golf GTI is still the best-selling hot hatch in nearly every market. But Ford Performance Europe boss Stefan Meunzinger thinks that the latest-generation Focus ST finally has what it takes to overtake its rival.

Ford Just Cancelled the Fourth-Gen 2022 Focus RS

Expect prices to spike quickly for the third-gen Ford Focus RS

There’s no easy way to put it so here we go: Ford won’t build a fourth-generation Focus RS because it cannot develop a high-performance hybrid powertrain for the sports car, one that would help the carmaker keep its vehicle fleet within the EU’s CO2 emission standards requirements.

Top 10 Fastest Used Cars Under $20K

Top 10 Fastest Used Cars Under $20K

These performance cars are cheap, fast, and have all had previous owners

With the prices of cars increasing, a $20,000 used sports car has become harder to obtain these days. Not too long ago, you could afford a decent runner for $20,000 and still have enough change to buy a few cosmetic kits. But that’s no longer the case today, or at least, not for the most part. Look hard enough, though, and you can still score some good deals on used sports cars for $20,000 or less. These cars aren’t world-beaters by any stretch of the imagination, but they should still have enough juice to get the adrenaline flowing. They’re out there in the world. All you need to do is look for them.

Is a Hennessey Venom 775 Faster Than a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500?

Is a Hennessey Venom 775 Faster Than a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500?

Evidently so, despite the GT350’s 0-60 mph time of 4.1 seconds!

Hennessey recently launched its latest recreation of the Ford F-150 called the Hennessey Venom 775. The truck has received a massive makeover, especially under the hood, and looks like Bruce Banner being exposed to Gamma rays. The truck is mighty quick and looks like a monster with the lift job and massive tires. To prove that the truck has more to it than its looks, the folks at Hennessey decided to pit it against a stock Mustang GT350. The GT350 is not an ordinary car, but can the Venom 775 beat it in a drag race?

The Ford Focus RS As We Know It Is Dead

The Ford Focus RS As We Know It Is Dead

There’s even a possibility that the RS project could be discontinued altogether

The last-gen Ford Focus RS was a fantastic car in every way, essentially setting a new standard for the term “hot hatch.” The next-generation Focus RS should have raised the bar even higher with its expected mild-hybrid drivetrain, 400 horsepower, and blistering quick acceleration. All of that has changed now, though, and the new European fleet emissions standards have, at the very least, delayed the next-generation Focus RS and could possibly lead to its cancellation altogether.

This Mustang Bullitt vs Supra Race Proves That Power Isn't Everything on a Drag Strip

This Mustang Bullitt vs Supra Race Proves That Power Isn’t Everything on a Drag Strip

There’s more to winning a drag race than having more ponies under your hood

On paper, a 480-horsepower Ford Mustang Bullitt should have no problem beating a 335-horsepower Toyota Supra in a drag race. But the tricky thing about predicting drag race results on paper is that they’re not worth the trees that were cut down to produce said paper. In other words, they don’t mean anything.

Car Magazine SA sought to answer the Mustang Bullitt versus Supra question by doing it the proper way: a drag race between the American muscle car and the Japanese sports car. If you’re looking at the protagonists of this race and you’re convinced that the Mustang Bullitt will have no problem laying waste to the Supra, then you might want to watch this video in all its entirety.

The 2021 Focus RS Will Push Into Mild-Hybrid Territory and Move Beyond Hot Hatch Classification

And, we won’t see it in the U.S., so it’s probably time to move to Europe.

I know you’re already bummed that the Ford Focus Hatch isn’t long for the U.S. market, and, I’m sorry to tell you, depression is about to set in even worse. We now have word from Car Magazine that the next-gen Focus RS is arriving soon and, even better yet, it’s being pushed into 400-horsepower, mild-hybrid territory. Will the new Focus RS feature a drift mode? Well, it’ll be better than that! This baby will ride like a hardcore hatch and accelerate like a true-to-life sportscar. Does it get any better than this?
