You guys are a styling generation behind. Hate the sharp angles on the taillight panel and spoiler. McClaren and Lamborghini are finally ridding themselves of the folds, creases, swoops, and angles. Let the car flow!

And please get rid of that fender emblem! Looks like a drunken, cross-eyed mule!

I was right about leaking Aiden Lee being lead exterior designer on this. Looks like the final design is about 2 years old, which is par for lead time, but excessive for a reworked car.

I don't see why it requires 3 years to still go from final body approval to showrooms.

I had mentioned S650 design was just about done roughly 2 years ago and these sketches prove it.

The rear end definitely is different from the brief WA glimpse I got in 2020. Cost cutting in effect, as those S550 taillights were too exotic and expensive to expand upon. Easier to simplify the manufacturing process and make them more 2D...

I feel like Chris Stevens was the lead designer on this car. It seems like most of the sketches are his, including ones which lead to the final design theme. The only sketches from Aiden I saw were on things like the taillights, and final sketches that basically reflected the work Chris was doing.

More specifically, I saw one sketch of Aiden's that was the taillights only, that green sketch that looks similar to Chris's and looks like it was trying to further develop that theme, and a sketch showing the finished design lined up next to previous gens. By comparison, Chris had dozens of individual sketches and proposals, including ones which flushed out a lot of the elements on the final design. If Aiden got credit as the lead designer, that's bs on ford's part.

Steering wheels..............I do like the design of the production wheel (first pic) but not as much as the other proposal! Not so much the, what look like, haptic "buttons".......I'm talking about the design in terms of the thinner spokes and smaller airbag/boss.
