    I'm pretty sure that is a Volvo concept car

    It is, of sorts. Its going to be sold with the Polestar branding. But as a pure electric coupe, that's one of the nicest I've seen.

    Pity they are going to be well over $100k though :(

    The Polestar 1 is basically the Volvo Coupe Concept with a new grille. That car was introduced late 2013 at the same time as the S550. I've always loved the design and had they actually built it I might have been tempted. So I'm glad they never did. This new $100.000+ hybrid hoopla however does not interest me the least bit.

    Concept

    Yes. I cropped the photo to eliminate the references to Volvo, but wanted to give them credit through the “Automobile” Web Site.

    Is very Mustang like, though, isn’t it?

    That new Volvo Polestar concept is now production reality and it’s gorgeous. Smaller and even better looking than the mustang. Just a shame it’s hybrid powered with a 4 cylinder motor. The interior is lovely too!
    Since Volvo have a relationship with GM for marine engine parts, I would love to see one with a Corvette LS in it :)

    The Saleen looks hideous to my eyes. The stock one is far nicer

    To me it is hideous at best. That grill is awful.

    I don't like SUVs, but if I had to drive one, I guess I'd rather have one like that than the big square boxy ones that are all over the roads these days. At least it's trying to look sporty.

    WTF, [Sarcasm] Why did Volvo steal the upcoming-stillnotrevealed-nextgen-focus2019 Headlights? [/Sarcasm]. Uhmm... everyday I'm getting more and more disappointed from Ford.


    So, going back on topic. Some People is saying that this Hybrid Mustang will be basically a GT with a Mild Hybrid system, however I don't see how a Mild Hybid would create such a fuss. IMHO it will be an option for the GT and it will have better launch/acceleration with a huge weight penalty (that's when I think that a Mild hybrid rumor may be true) Focus.jpg

    Fukushima was also hit by a once-in-a-thousand-years event, a wall of water larger than anyone had ever expected, that spilled over a TEN METER HIGH seawall.

    It was an Ecoboost Premium rental that I got on a lark while my WRX was in the body shop that made me go "Woah, this is NICE!" I bought a GT PP that same weekend. Then the stars aligned this spring and I traded up to a GT350.

    "Still a couple of years away".....

    The question still remains if they'd base it in the current S550, or a heavily revised/all new S650/CD6.

    I honestly didn't read 43 pages and I wasn't going to try to catch up on everything that has been posted. Has the eBooster system been discussed? Borg Warner upgraded the turbo and made it basically an electric hybrid sequential turbo system.

    The car makes 410 horsepower and 450 pound feet of torque. Yet, still exceeds the stock torque curve at all engine speeds. Like the V8, the power feels linear and delivery is smooth. We’ll we’ve taken a 2.3L and made it have the same power as the V8 not only the same power really we’ve made it have 40% more torque and 15% more top end power while maintaining that 30% better fuel economy of the 4-cylinder.

    They are comparing these to 15-17 V8 numbers because this story predates the 2018 V8 update.
