The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Will Be Quicker Than The Mustang GT
The highly anticipated 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E just broke cover as the company’s first competitive EV and the first production electric vehicle to sport the Mustang name. The big news is that the Mach-E will be offered in a high-performance trim as well. It will be called the GT, it will generate well in excess of 400 horsepower, and hit 60 mph from a standing start in "the mid-three-second range." This means it will be quicker than the Mustang GT. Is the muscle car becoming irrelevant now that the Mustang is also a high-performance electric SUV?
The Ford Mustang Mach-E Has Some Interesting and Unique Door Handles
There are a lot of quirks to the 2020 Ford Mustang Mach-E, but one that really stuck out to us is the fact that it seems void of door handles. Then we noticed that weird stationary handle on the front doors, and we had to dig a little further to see just what was going on. There’s a somewhat interesting story here and some potential future problems. Here’s what you need to know about the Mach-E’s weird-ass door handles.
How much Mustang is there in the 2021 Mustang Mach-E?
Ford just launched its first all-electric crossover, the 2021 Mustang Mach-E - A cool vehicle packed with tech and equipped with powerful motors and batteries, but it’s also surrounded by some controversy due to its name. Not only does it sport a "Mustang" badge, but it also features a version of the iconic "Mach" nameplate, revised from Mach 1 into Mach-E. Some say that Ford shouldn’t have used these badges on an electric SUV, while others think that Ford is simply trying to bank on these historic names. The big question is, how much Mustang is there in the 2021 Mach-E? Let’s find out.
2020 Ford Mustang Mach-E Order Books Have Opened - Here’s What You Need to Know
The 2020 Ford Mustang Mach-E marks many firsts for the Blue Oval moving into the electrified era. For some reason, Ford decided to attach the Mustang’s legacy to this crossover, thus making it the first Mustang-inspired SUV. It also happens to be the first production-bound all-wheel-drive Mustang. Now that the electric crossover is finally here, Ford has started accepting orders for it. You can reserve your Mach-E by paying a deposit of $500. However, you don’t have all the models available right from launch. So, should you wait until 2021 when all the trims arrive, or is time to put down your money right away and make a reservation? Well, that depends on what you want.
Don’t just expect the Mustang Mach-E to be a success based on its name
In unveiling the new Mustang Mach-E, Ford has booked a seat in the same electric car club that’s nowadays frequented by the leading big-name automakers: Tesla, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Jaguar, and Porsche. Admittedly, the Blue Oval did arrive a tad late to the party. Now, threatened by the risk of falling behind its rivals that were already building and selling electric cars, Ford needed to come up with a quick and cost-effective solution that would allow it to launch it’s first serious electric car as soon as possible. The savior was none other than Ford’s iconic Mustang nameplate and, as exciting as that might sound, it will hold no weight in the model’s success (or failure).
The Ford Mustang Mach-E is as expensive as the Tesla Model Y, but is it worth it?
The Ford Mustang Mach-E has officially debuted, but the big news is that the folks over at the Mach-E forums discovered some URLs on Ford’s official website that includes more information about the SUV than FoMoCo wanted us to know right now, including pricing. It seems that the Mustang Mach-E will have a starting price similar to Tesla’s Model Y, so it’s time to see how the two electric SUVs compare.
2020 Ford Mustang Mach-E Video Compilation
You might not agree with Ford’s decision to use the Mustang name (of the Mach name, for that matter) on a crossover, but at least it does carry some Mustang DNA. Either way, as an all-knew model, there’s a lot that we need to do to actually get acquainted with it, the first of which is browsing our new Mach-E gallery. Then, you might want tolearn the finer details and get in tune with the Mach-E’s charging time and range. Finally, we’ve posted all the Mach-E videos we have to help you push your knowledge on Ford’s latest and greatest to the next level.

If You’re Buying a 2020 Ford Mustang Mach-E, You Better Have a 240-Volt Plug in Your Garage
The Ford Mustang Mach-E has come to usher in a new era for Ford and the Mustang Name. It’s the first Mustang EV slated for production, and it’s the first crossover to wear the Mustang Name. Along with its debut, we learned that the Mach-E can charge at the rate of 3 miles per hour on a typical, 120-Volt home outlet, and we started wondering: just how does that compare to other models on the market?
The 2020 Ford Mustang Mach-E Promises 459 Horsepower and 300-Mile Range, But Not at the Same Time
The Mustang has a long and vibrant history, but the future is here, and the Mustang Mach-E is the proverbial looking glass into the future of not only the Mustang name but Ford as a whole. The Mustang Mach-E is the first production electric Mustang, and it’s the first crossover to bear the Mustang name too. It comes with a promise of up to 300 miles in range, up to 459 horsepower, and access to 75-percent of America’s charging infrastructure, but there’s a catch.
Tesla’s "Plaid Mode" T-Shirt is Actually Pretty Cool
Tesla’s ability to monetize just about anything under the sun is back in the news. As if flamethrowers, tequilas, and branded hats aren’t enough, the Tesla is now offering a “Plaid Mode” t-shirt to commemorate the arrival of the new range-topping version of the Model S. The shirt, which is literally available in Tesla’s online shop was designed to, according to the company, “celebrate Tesla’s incredible performance mode.” It’s made from 100% cotton, and, apparently, it’s also the “next best thing to riding shotgun at the Nurburgring.” The Tesla “Plaid Mode” t-shirt is available for $35 at sizes ranging from “XS” to “XXL.” At this point, if you haven’t bought one yet, we don’t know what you’re waiting for.

ICYMI: Someone Caught the New Ford Mach-E Electric SUV on Camera - First Look
Ford’s upcoming all-electric and Mustang-inspired SUV was caught testing in the wild with a production body. The crossover is wrapped in camouflage from bumper to bumper, but the details show through the wrap, so it’s our best look at this vehicle yet. The Ford Mach-E, as it’s expected to be called, will make its official debut at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show, most likely in pre-production form.
Wallpaper of the Day: Porsche 918
Today, we want to pay tribute to the Porsche 918 - a cold-hearted, track-ready slayer of the McLaren P1 and Ferrari Laferrari. Powered by a 4.6-liter V-8 and two electric motors, this Porsche supercar can hit 60 mph in 2.8 seconds, 124 mph in 7.2 seconds, and 186 mph in 23 seconds. Add on the Weissach package and its 77-pound weight reduction, and you’ll hit the same sprints in 2.6, 7.2, and 19.9 seconds, respectively. The exterior is all Porsche, and the design is still represented on new models to this day, but the 918 just stands on its out and is a great throwback, so we’ve labeled it as our wallpaper of the day. We’ve posted our favorite below, but there’s a massive gallery at the bottom of the page for you to choose from.
The Toyota Avalon and Camry Are Now AWD, But I’m More Interested in the Pictures
Toyota is super proud of the fact that it was able to pair the 2019 RAV 4’s AWD system with the 2020 Camry and 2021 Avalon. It’s also proud of the fact that AWD can be specified on most trim levels without adding too much weight (just 165 pounds for the Camry,) but what I’m more interested in are the pictures that Toyota released along with this news.
New Rendering Envisions a Real-Life Need For Speed Toyota Supra
The 2019 SEMA Auto Show hosted no less than five different Toyota Supra concepts. None of them, though, can compete with the audacity of this custom rendering of a tricked-out Toyota Supra created by Ambielec Design.
Inspired by the Need For Speed: Heat video game that was launched earlier this month, this Supra rendering wears what is arguably the wildest wide-body kit we’ve seen on the returning Japanese sports coupe. It’s modified to an extent that the only two possible reactions to this rendering are to either love it or hate it. We’re still not sure where we are on that scale.
Are Cars Without Windshields Becoming a Trend?
McLaren unveiled the Elva supercar earlier this week, and among its many unique features, it included one that has become trendy among supercar brands in recent years. Folks, the Elva is the first production McLaren that doesn’t have a windshield. In fact, it doesn’t have a roof, either. Windows? What are those?
As striking and unique as the Elva is, it’s not the first performance car to adopt this kind of appearance. In this decade alone, there have been a number of other performance vehicles that were created with the little-to-no-windshield design. Some arrived as concepts while others turned into production models. Either way, these five vehicles pulled the design off to varying degrees of success.
Wallpaper of the Day: 2020 Ferrari F8 Spider
When Ferrari decided to replace the 488 Spider, we go the F8 Spider – a drop-top version of the F8 Tributo with a carry over of technology and chassis technology from the track-bred 488 Pista. It might not be quite as dynamic as the 488 Pista, but third V-8 powered Italian is good for 710 horsepower and 569 pound-feet of torque – enough to push 60 mph breeze through your hair in just 2.9 seconds. As the epitome of topless performance, the F8 Spider competes against the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder and the McLaren 720S Spider, but we’re so stuck on the F8’s design that we’ve decided to feature it as our wallpaper of the day. We’ve chosen our favorite and posted it below, but there’s also a gallery further down the page for you to choose your favorite from. Go ahead and pick your favorite – it’s free!
Watch a Toyota Supra, Dodge Demon, and a BMW E30 Go Head to Head in the Desert
You don’t get to see a Dodge Demon every day. Then again, you don’t get to see it as it stretches its muscles during some good ol’ drag racing in the company of a Toyota Supra, a BMW E30, and Savage Garage’s Ford Raptor. Oh, and this is no prep drag-race, by the way, as the whole scenario unfolds in the desert, between bursting clouds of sand.
Now that we have your attention, get ready to be amazed by the Supra, which proves extremely apt at putting down the power and generating enough grip to shoot ahead of its rivals, literally leaving them behind, choking on its dust.
The Interior of This Porsche 993 "Greenwich" By Gunther Werks is the Epitome of Perfection
Gunther Werks is back at it again. The crew that brought us the limited-edition $525,000 400R is working on another 993 model dubbed the Greenwich Commission. It’s not fully revealed yet, but Gunther Werks isn’t shying away from bumping our heart rates with a set of interior pictures.
Yes, we’re drooling. But as awesome as it might be, we expect the Greenwich Commission’s interior to be backed up by an exterior and an engine that are least on par when it comes to divine attention to detail and exquisite craftsmanship. Could that be just enough to give Singer a run for its money?
2020 McLaren Elva
The 2021 McLaren Elva is a brand-new supercar that the British firm added to its Ultimate Series lineup, alongside the Senna and the Speedtail. A two-seat open-cockpit design, it’s inspired by a series of race cars built by Bruce McLaren in the 1960s under the McLaren-Elva name. It’s McLaren’s first open-cockpit road car and its lightest road-going vehicle yet. A track-ready roadster with an aerodynamic design, the 2021 Elva features the most powerful iteration of McLaren’s twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 engine. Rated at 804 horsepower, it slots above the Senna in terms of power and falls behind only the Speedtail hybrid. Let’s find out more about this beast in the review below.
