I don't know? The kid at the Dunkin' drive through window asked "is that the new electric mustang". Is that the electric ford/edge/explorer/taurus/probe(!)? Doesn't sound the same. Perception is everything.
I literally do this on a daily basis at work but not once did my mind go there for my own vehicle. Got a healthy home brain work brain divide going on.
March for those who were wondering.
Also, I didn't order mine. Walked on to the lot an pointed at the one I wanted. Plenty on the lots...

Seems like a horrible idea though. Lot full of inventory that can't be sold. Service department getting over loaded and making peanuts to finish assembling a car.
Is the vehicle fully assembled minus the ecu or is half the dash apart? Just...
