One day, Ford will end up making 1,000 Ford GT supercars for a group of people handpicked from an application pool as worthy enough to spend $500,000 on the car in the first place. But those people may get the car later than expected, since Ford didn’t deliver GTs as quickly as planned its first year of production.
I found a copy of a great old book called Cars That Never Were in a used bookstore, behind a secret door marked with a pair of crossed pistons and reeking of old motor oil and decay. The book is full of interesting prototypes, but one caught my eye especially because of its novel design and engine choice. It’s a 1964…
Infamous for having a strict application process for interested buyers, the new Ford GT frustrated a lot of people due to the how the law of supply and demand works. But if you’re one of the people who are eager for round two, then listen up: Ford is going to reopen the application process later this year, according…
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the stories you need to know.
Ford is killing off almost all of its cars and sedans in North America because modern buyers walk around in a crossover-obsessed haze, but the Fusion may stick around—kind of. Bloomberg reports that the Fusion name, at least, may live on in the form of a Subaru Outback-rivaling sport wagon.
Ford will be killing pretty much all of its cars, which will either be a brilliant move from a profit perspective or backfire spectacularly. The good news is that the Fiesta ST will stick around for the 2019 model year, along with a cheaper version that will give you the looks of the ST, but not the moves.
Arguably one of the most incredible things about the 1950s was the insistence that we could absolutely use this potentially deadly technology in the most wholesome ways to create a really cool car.
In case you hadn’t heard the obscure, sparsely covered and rarely opined-about news, Ford bought a train station recently—Detroit’s famous ruin, Michigan Central Station. People are so moved by it all that they’re calling up Ford and offering up all of the items they’ve stolen from the station over the years.
If it’s time to go car shopping again, perhaps skip the Craigslist ads, the enticing CarMax warranty or Aston Martin of Cleveland. This year at the Silverstone Classic auctions in the UK, we find three similar and similarly priced street legal touring car legends—all of which are priced to sell and old enough to…

Ford, like every automaker, is racing to develop autonomous driving technology and deploy a slate of electric vehicles. So, we’re told, it bought a building. Game changer, baby.
Ford has generated tons of goodwill in recent days, after it went public about a long-running rumor that it had purchased the City of Detroit’s most famous ruin, Michigan Central Station—so much so, a thief who stole a clock from the beautiful building decades ago has returned the antique.
Professional wrestler and former Ford GT owner John Cena has settled the lawsuit with Ford over the sale of his Ford GT. Cena was contractually obligated to keep the limited-run supercar for 24 months, but sold his anyway. Now he is settling that lawsuit with Ford for an undisclosed amount, which Ford will donate to…
Aside from the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawks and the Lamborghini Urus (Uruses? Uri?) of the world, most supercars aren’t practical. They’re low to the ground, and they don’t carry much at all. But this Ford GT doesn’t need room to store vital stuff on the inside—its owner just carries his wheelchair on the roof.
