Modern-day Porsche 964 Turbo?
This fastback sedan with gullwing-style doors and hybrid powertrain is intended to offer hints regarding Ford’s design direction along with new engineering solutions aimed at improving fuel efficiency.
The future Defender?
After taking in that large (carbon-fiber?) fixed wing, let your eyes move down to the mammoth, multi-level rear diffuser fitted to this test car. The entire rear looks wider than before, even the taillights have a cleaner and more integrated design. A true rear window has also been fitted, which should greatly improve rear visibility.
According to our sources, many of the design changes are due to the Exige moving to the same chassis that can be found under the Evora 2+2.
The Exige will likely share the same normally-aspirated and supercharged versions of the 3.5-liter V-6 found in the Evora and Evora S. Based on the performance figures of the current Evora, the lighter Exige should have no problem zipping to 60 mph in 5.0 seconds or less.
