    It looks like Nissan was doing better than Renault which has been cratering in Europe. Both do have an EV tech selling so its just autonomous that both are behind (like many Asian car makers). It was Renault who saved Nissan so they had the upperhand. Nissan have just 1-2 good selling cars in Europe and Peugeot-Citroen have been doing alot better than Renault. Nissan are also generating lots of US cash unlike Renault.

    Outside the US, the big cities (and mega market China) are starting to intro heavy taxes to curtail the dirtiest vehicles. VW is now redirecting vast sums to get into the EV game (Audi needs to in order to compete with Tesla). Either Ford gives up on EV and hopes the US keeps buying trucks to make profits or it needs a partner where both have poor experience of hybrid. It may not be expensive oil but families and millenials demanding cleaner city air. Look at what China faces.
    Nobody is making Hydrogen cheaply now so unless Nuclear takes off or can crack seawater. HYdrogen needs supercold (in a warmer world) storage and takes up more space. If it is the future, then its at the same stage as the 1st EV tech.

    McLaren did not go into the supercar market by just image. The car had to beat Ferrari in engineering before it could even consider competing on brand. The Vette would be a laughing stock if they had not tried to improve radically. It has the image but was seen as just trading on it. Would Bugatti have sold their supercars on brand alone? Remember the NSX disappeared for ages when Honda car sales fell. Where did the old NSX buyer go – Porsche-Mclaren-Merc AMG etc. Infiniti is a well engineered car range but the brand is anonymous in Europe-home to luxury cars.
    Toyota understood it with Lexus and even with excellent engineering-it still is playing catchup with Merc-BMW.

    As a manual transmission sports car enthusiast for several decades I applaud fords move to a dct in the mustang gt500..

    Thats awesome and i look forward to this vehicle reaching production.

    Cutting edge technology and an awesome and surprising move by mistang engineers..besides the gt350 offers a manual should a buyer just have to have a clutch pedal in their hot rod mustang,

    Msrp and dealer markups aside…the gt500 seems like a hell of build!

    PS im a corvette enthusiasts too boot,

    Kudos to ford for such a wild and exciting prodiction move.
