    Default Concept Ford Thunderbird - Is this for real?

    I was cruising through the internet and located this little beauty. Is this something that might hit production, or is it a load of hopes and dreams? Personally I love the body shape and would really like to see one on the road sometime. The specs show a lower then I would like in horsepower, but that design of the car is just very cool. Has anyone else found out anything about this yet?

    Just judging by the gibberish posing as English in the description I'd say it's fake. Especially where they say the car would have the AJ-V8 in it. If Ford built a new T-Bird any v8 would be a Coyote, but more likely it'd have dn Ecoboost engine

    Looks like someone was playing with a Taurus and Mustang on photoshop.

    I'm waiting for the new Bronco to hit the showrooms in 2020. Ford was compelled to announce the impending birth after Trump slammed them for moving small car production to Mexico. Details here: http://uscarstoday.com/2020-ford-bronco/.

    I'm waiting for the new Ford Hindsight to come out in 2020. That sounds perfect (and will be made in the USA).
