The GT variant has was always planned as a staggered launch post the non GT variants. As for performance, prepare to be surprised. The GT performance is going to be a real performance vehicle , not just a 0-60 drag car but a track beast as well. Think GT350R and Gt500. There also going to be a special "thing" that's unannounced and will def cause jaws to drop. That's all I can share.
I'd love to know what you know! :)

Yeah, staggered launch for sure but to go from Spring 2021 to Late Summer 2021 means they've added a bit of extra time. They're up to something and I bet you dollars to donuts it's gonna be good.

My guess is it was intentionally leaked, here is how it went down:

"Hey Fred we need to leak some enticing footage for the Mach-E fans to salivate and speculate about. Why don't you climb that hill over there and take some footage and make it 'shaky' you know bigfoot style!"

"Why me, don't you know I don't like the woods...there are bugs and ticks out there?"

"Come on, do it, our fans are waiting..."

How would they know?
How could they not be different from the regular MME?
The front fans appear to be where the frunk would be and the back ones would block the bottom half of the rear cargo access. These are clearly not fans in a standard MME.

Three fans in the rear? Or is this another fake prop installed to hide real details?

What would be the point of installing big fans to hide some real detail? It looks like they've gone to extreme efforts to reduce weight.

That said, there are four people in the vehicle. Not a good way to reduce weight.

Anyone else notice how small those rotors are? ;)

My point was that if it isn't Ford how would someone know how many fans are on the MME since they haven't been able to see one in person (let alone take it apart)--too much to type on a phone...

Maybe so but those brakes seemed to work just fine.

Has a bit of a rally car look. An electric rally car, that would certainly be a way to gather some attention for the new "Mustang".
