This is the electric Mustang that would have Elon Musk shook

In a parallel universe with no Tesla, this is what the Elon working for Ford would have given us.

It's said 'imitation is the highest form of flattery'. This four-door electric "Mustang Mach-F" is the Tesla Model S doppelganger. It's the Porsche Taycan's long lost burger-eating twin. The similarities are obvious to even the most crudely informed consumer. The Tesla and Porsche are edging in on the most opulent and sybaritic lifestyle; do we think this Ford could fit into the market?

This "Mustang Mach-F" was created by Emre Husman. He decided to come up with a "5-door fastback electric Mustang" after seeing the Mach-E when it was unveiled late last year. He writes, "I imagined this car as a direct rival to Tesla Model S and Porsche Taycan. Overall dimensions are similar to the BMW M8 Gran Coupe, which would make it a perfect autobahn machine."

I couldn't agree more with Emre. This four-door "Mustang Mach-F" is the perfect Tesla Model S and Taycan fighter. It's another example of how electricity can be exciting instead of a dreary eco-machine. It's an evolution of the Mustang spirit, yet different and separate from the Mustang we know - not to destroy the fan base of the original pony.

Knowing the Mustang name will now be a brand produced under Ford, we should have high expectations. The Mach-E is an underwhelming product for such a haloed name. An electric crossover is the best the new Mustang brand could give us? It's too bad Emre didn't have some say at Ford - he produced something I think we could all support.

With angry looking, 3-stripe signature LED light design in the front and rear makes it as distinctive as a true Mustang.

Emre even went through the thought process to envision technology this electric pony could have, as evidence with the steering wheel. Does anyone have a fingerprint start button? I'd think this would be a solid piece of technology for an electric car. There is no starter motor wind up prior to dropping into drive. It would be an instantaneous motion from granting access to accessing drive modes.

I genuinely wish this was the first electric vehicle for the Mustang brand and not the crossover we're getting. It feels disingenuous of Ford to brand a crossover with the name Mustang. It isn't a Mustang we're familiar with and surely one we didn't ask for. Who are these marketing people anyhow?! Where do they pick people that say they're 'okay' with this scheme.

  • Rather than full electric could they do v8 hybrid. Battery for the boring commute in traffic, v8 for the weekend thrill

    • You say this and watch: the next OG Mustang will be hybrid. Mark my words.

    • With a 4 banger ego-bruised. Slowly, the 5.0 Coyote is being phased out. Its a good thing the Dodge Boys are nutier than squirrel turds.

  • Not a Mustang fan but I like this. I completely agree with Emre. This SUV/CUV crap needs to stop and branding one a Mustang feels like a cash grab while diluting the Mustang heritage.

    Ford has some amazing innovations happening right now. I am definitely not a fanboy but even I will say that right now Ford is making good stuff. They should have made this and need to then pay Emre lots of money.

    PS the Bronco should have had a V8!

    • Ford has released a lot of enthusiast vehicles no one else dared to do. I couldn’t have said it better - diluting the heritage for a cash grab. Well said.

  • it's a render. The problem with renders is that, just like Michelangelo's helicopters, they do not fly.

    Anybody with an arts degree can draw pretty. The challenge is to also make it work.

    • The engineers could make it happen if the accountants would step away for a moment.

    • I think not. No sane engineer would make those wheels for example.

      As to the accountants, as dreary as they are, if you removed the accountants, the company would go bust pretty quickly. And then the engineers would be fired, and no cars...

  • I might consider moving towards electric cars if they would have made this a reality. In all honesty, I really like the design and there would be much more potential and hype to it rather than the current and bland Mach-E.

    • I’m in the same camp. I bet it would be far too expensive even if they made it. Anything more than $40k is a bit out of reach. I don’t enjoy making monthly payments for the rest of eternity.

    • Same here but I'm just starting out on payment stuff lol. If they were to make it like a Tesla Model 3 with that body style, I'd still be happy with it.

  • This is really cool,but 2-door will be better for the sake of the legacy.
