    Sid,
    I was speaking to someone else about this car and I made the comment that typically these cars go to existing Ford associated race teams (or at least teams that Ford knows will race them), and it is not easy for just anyone to order one. Is that correct, or can anyone order one of these cars?

    There's a number of unsold 2018s still out there. I'm sure if you have the cash one can be yours.

    We just talking about these mustangs in the NSFWPics thread!

    Honestly, I'm glad it was Ford and not Tesla who built it.

    Wouldn't have it if you gave it to me. Soulless and boring.

    I think Chebby came out with an eCOPO Camaro roughly a year ago. It’s not as fast as what Ford is claiming with this, but it’s been out a while. Nobody really cared about it.

    I have to agree with you. I was once about as anti-electric Mustang as anyone, but when you see the performance potential, suddenly thoughts change. My brother in Texas was always an American V8 fan, but after he bought his Tesla, his love changed right away. He LOVES the instant torque and quiet thrust. I'm starting to understand why an all-electric Mustang might be a good thing.

    It was big and GM at 2018 SEMA. Once racing in 2019 it was a non GM car? No one bought it when it was for sale at 500K in september 2019. 700hp and 9 sec for 500K. eCOPO Chevrolet Camaro Fails To Sell At Auction

    I’ve been in my buddy’s Tesla. I couldn’t believe how 1) the tires don’t spin one bit 2) launch is unreal 3) it puts you back in the seat and 4) you’re doing nearly 80 in 6 seconds. I hate to see electric cars, however, they are fast as
    sh!t!!

    You have never driven in the bay area have you? That video is not reality. Nothing goes that smooth with road work. Now could it be done yes. But it would take at least in the bay area a couple years maybe 3 because nothing goes smooth in reality
