    It looks like SHO and RS are alive and well at Ford

    the performance brand at Ford its alive
    But some of the questions were serious, as were Mulally’s answers.

    The Ford chief, for instance, confirms the auto maker will offer high-performance SHO or RS versions of the Focus, Fiesta or Fusion “over time,” prompting the questioner to tweet, “Holy crap, Alan Mulally just responded to my question about more SHO/RS Fords!”

    Mulally also says the Ford Advantage incentive program, which covers vehicle payments of new-car buyers for 12 months should they lose their job, is working.

    Additionally, he says the Fusion will be offered with a direct-injected turbocharged EcoBoost engine in the future.

    Is a hybrid-electric truck in Ford’s future? “EcoBoost is the next dramatic step in capability and fuel efficiency in our trucks,” Mulally tweets.

    I think my favorite part of the article is the fact that he drives the "competition". :Coughs: Lexus LS430 :Coughs: On a serious note, I am interested to see how the Ecoboost MKS compares with its competitors.

    It'd get kinda boring to drive a car that you had a large role in making from the start, no? It would be like an music artist listening to their own album! Besides, how is he supposed to know what Ford needs to improve on if he never sets foot in a competitor car?

    It said he drives a different vehicle each day, including the competition. It does not say he exclusively drives the competition. I wonder how often he even drives (vs. is driven).

    I doubt he spends much time in a pre-2007 Lexus. (The LS430 has not been offered since the 2006 model).

    Ford does not offer any "competition" for the Lexus LS and probably never will.

    IIRC, he owned that same Lexus when he worked for Boeing.

    Well that officially kills the rumors that were BS to begin with about it dying.
