    And the Thunderbolt was a corruption of an iconic 1964 Fairlane lightweight AF/X moniker. Ford seems to have some memory problems at times.

    Thats right, the 1964 Thunderbolt is one of my all time favorite classics.

    Hopefully 'fastest' means fast, and not low 13s or something lame. If it can't outrun a tune only single cab Coyote, then its a flop.

    Meh, I'm completely OK with it. If this part is true...
    Then an electric Lightning will be continuing the performance trend and spirit of the concept.

    The bloated 4 door electric crossover SUV...? Ain't never gonna be a Mustang in my book.

    Maybe your friend is just retarded? That would explain his want of the Mach-e. Autotrader has almost 2000 of them for sale.

    I had to edit this because I was just curious. There are more Cuck-e's available than Mustang GT's. That's sad.

    So long as they don't Mach E it, I'll be excited.

    Unfortunately, the electric car era is coming, so I'm behind any manufactures that are trying to have 'performance' oriented lines.

    I would hope that the Mach-E GT battery pack (and Performance option) will make it to the Lightning. Assuming the Lightning-E is more than a rumor.

    No he's right. The "changing times" is usually what the market demands. The market isn't demanding it the government is. Just have to look to see who benefits to figure out why.

    I’m in the RC industry and the same thing happened to us. Although there is still Nitro cars most everything has gone electric. Including planes and boats.
