Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. SketchMonkey makes some changes: (Companion video on front end changes as well.)

So glad he wasnt on Ford's design team
Yeah, can't say I'm a fan of all the changes. He obviously liked the GT front end better and made the standard Mach E more GT like in the front. (I do like the GT front end better and it is one big reason I have a GT reservation.)

The rear changes seemed to soften the design maybe too much. Probably took too much "character" away.

I didn't setup a poll, but I'll take your comment as a "no " vote. 👍

The back is the only point where the original design fails for me, or rather the lights just don't work what looked fine in the design sketches has not translated well to the metal, from some angles it works and others they really don't. and sticking a large black slab between them doesn't help.

The only real way to fix them for me is to just make then tail lights red, but then we would get ford been counters giving me a hopeless and unsafe red turn signal rather than spending the coin on having a green filtered one.

The only other part of the design that needs fixing is removing the stupid door handle, while it would also be nice to see a 21" wheel on the GT as 20" look a little lost in the arches.

Funnily enough I think Ford's design is better. Leave car design to the experts
Agreed. I like the way the sequential taillights work on the Mach-E. The yellow streak starting in the middle and working it's way through to the outside. Just wow!! I think I may use my turn signals more often with the Mach-E.
