  • Blame the aerodynamic constraints. This is probably the ideal shape for FR cars.

  • The proportions and dimensions might be similar/same but it is a coupe so there is only one recipe.

    Ford can’t afford BMW parts and sell at Ford prices, BMW would be mortified to put a ford part in their cars. Any industry standard components however are not Ford or BMW.

    Why not compare a ford Kuga with a BMW X2 next time. Keep doing this and you’ll start to lose credibility.

  • The two are similar in basic shape. So is the 350/370. Not a surprise. Between aerodynamic properties of the shape, two door coupe ideology and the cleanliness of the design lend itself to wide uses. Not surprised that the uninitiated see it in the way. The basic flow the shape is the same. The difference is in the nuances including material quality and design purposes.

    I don't say to any designer that all of your shapes and designs are derivative. The designer has a task. So do car designers. The subtle differences are where the magic happens. I also don't go to Dali and tell him his work looks like DaVinci. That all paintings look the same because they use paint on canvas.

    • Nether do I, by his logic a Bentley Continental, A5 and half the two doors I can think of are “Mustangs”, including the Vantage.

  • It’s a compelling case. Sketch Monkey is knowledgeable.
