    So I just got back from the LA Autoshow. The Mustang Mach E was very much the center of attention. I will say it looks better in person, sportier. When looking at the internet photos I did not see anything that said Mustang other than the tailights and horsies, but seeing it in person, I saw the Mustang! Not a whole lot and only from the rear 3/4 view, but the fake roof line and rear fender going into the tailight area did say Mustang. The attached image captures it, I think. That said, the softness of the edges, as noted before, is in complete contrast to the Mustang's much edgier edges and variations in softness. Image Unavailable, Please Login

    the more I see of this the more I fear for Ford.
    I didn't think it could look much worse than the met. red blob, but this shape in that blue -
    - take an athlete and introduce him to Guy Fieri's diet plan....

    I spoke to a number of people from different studios, and the sense I got was that, not necessarily because of the design, but because of the branding, the other companies had to suddenly rethink their plans. Instead of thinking "we need to make a better generic electric car", now they are thinking "We need to create a brand image that is exciting in some way". I don't know why they were not already thinking this way, but maybe it has to do with the "all cars are pods" future that Tesla is seemingly headed for. It will be interesting to see how and how quickly some of the other companies respond.

    Which is interesting to me as the Chinese like garish design, yet this is pretty subdued.
