    Hybrid V8? Hey sure, why not? I'm just repeating what I've seen written elsewhere.

    Various sites are predicting front wheel electric motors. Me? I say put an electric booster motor on the driveshaft and just keep the hybrid system as simple as possible. #shrug

    It'd be amazing if there were front wheel motors - I'm certainly in huge support of that. I'm just not sure I see Ford bearing that much risk in a mass production car. I sure hope they do!

    I don't personally see the real advantage of a hybrid four cylinder or how it would slot into the lineup, but maybe that's not important and Ford wants to preserve the purity of the V8. If Volvo can build a turbosuperhybridcharged car, there's no reason Ford can't build just a simple turbohybridcharged one.

    Jesus, man, it's not all that exciting. There's been hybrid Mustangs for years.

    Spoiler:



    Half car, half pedestrian.

    Man, those fenders fix every complaint I have about the current Mustang visually.

    They fix a lot of things. Too bad it's probably a 6 figure Mustang!

    So while Mustangs are out there crashing on their own free will, Ford Performance decided that offering a plug in and simple bolt electronic drift handbrake add on called the "Drift Stick" for the Focus RS's is a completely sane idea, get it soon for only $999
