Friday, 8/27/21 Update:
SYNC 4 Software Version: 21180_PRODUCT, Revision: 176

Saturday 8/21/21 Update:
I have some fantastic initial driving videos / review including 0-60, be patient, good stuff coming.

Delivered late afternoon today (Thurs, 8/19/21)...
2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition in Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat
Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

It came two weeks earlier than expected!

Some commentary after a day of work, few pics, and letting a few friends drive:
  • The dark grey color is lighter in the pictures than seeing in person, so I think it does look cooler in person.
  • I've let a couple other EV techies drive it today and they are exhilarated
  • Intense laughter when stomping on the go pedal
  • "Feel it in the gut."
  • Like a roller coaster and space shot
  • Tight control - great stability
  • Steering wheel feels fantastic, for a race car.
  • 15 minutes later: I can still feel that power in my gut!
  • Heavy sense of regeneration, ie. let go of pedal and can definitely feel it actively slowing down, not coasting. (probably not specific to the GT PE)
  • I have to adjust power response expectations in traffic - such as goosing it to pass - need to ensure I've already changed lanes before goosing it, otherwise intense acceleration sneaks up too fast to car in front.

Updated with complete specific timeline:
  1. November 2019 - Reservation
  2. May 1st, 2021 - Ordered
  3. End of June 2021 - notice of build date the week of July 18th
  4. July 18th - Aug 9th - Status was Building in progress
  5. August 10th - Status changed to shipping with estimated delivery Aug 31st - Sept 6th.
  6. August 12th - Estimated delivery improved by two days to Aug 29th - Sept 4th.
  7. Continued with that for about week, approximately. On PALSAPP, only appearing a Freight Bill number and pending.
  8. August 17th PALSAPP changed to dispatched, but no estimated delivery date.
  9. August 19th PALSAPP changed to delivered in late morning. I called the dealership and they confirmed.
  10. Vehicle was EXTREMELY dusty - probably dust collected from Mexico to Texas to Kansas City.
  11. Got feeling a few dealership employees got to drive / do the pre-deliver inspection, which is fine by me. Spread the fun.
  12. Finalized paperwork and left dealership by 5:45pm, clean as a whistle

So you're just going to post outside pics, no interior pics, no review of any kind?

I feel like this is somehow worse than Ford's review embargo.

Have you even been on this forum the past 2 months? ?

He just joined yesterday to post this. I don't think he realizes yet what he's thrown himself into...

Also, what Pirelli tire is that? Either the pic is a little blurry or there's basically no tread in the center strip sections.
