It took a few years for the new-for-1964 Ford Mustang to grow out of its awkward years into a proper muscle car. By 1967 it gained some musculature and body mass, with which it came to define the Pony Car era. With experience in motorsport, a lot of research and development, and a few years of growth, the Mustang became the car we all remember as being an icon.
History has a tendency to repeat itself.
That’s right. Just give this ungainly Ford coupe a few years. It’ll become a bigger and beefier version of itself. It’ll become the Mach-E inspired beauty that it was always meant to be.
Congratulations on your backwards logic throwback COTD victory, Nextcar. I think even I’m confused by this loop.
