Ford Interceptor -This car rocks. (4-door Mustang) 400 Horses!

I just came across a news article about the Ford Interceptor. I think this looks like an awesome car. I need a 4-door in addition to the Porsche. Most of the people who have been commenting on this are insulting the car but I think if I had to drive a 4-door this would be it. I use to buy Lincolns when I needed a larger car, but if this baby comes to market I am buying it!!!

I am curious what other people think of this car.

Here is one link!

PS: HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!

The Porsche SUV looks like every other SUV. A 4-door Porsche car would be the end of Porsche. The Ford interceptor is what I want to drive if I have to drive a 4-door.

Perhaps. But the 300 looks like the poor man's RR. The Ford has...well...

It has been a long time since I have had a rear-wheel drive sedan. One thing I noticed during our recent blizzard was that the Mustangs were virtually helpless in the snow. Much noise and spinning of tires, but no forward progress to speak of.

The world needs another 4000 lb, 400 HP car with 4 doors.

Apparently we need them about as badly as we need 500 HP Mustangs and 415 HP Porsches...

I would agree with that!

Ford Interceptor? Probably in the mid $30's
Porsche Panamera? Estimated to be $150,000 without doodads like GPS, etc.

I'm thinking buying a different color interceptor for every day of the work week would probably appeal to a lot more people than plunking down $150 large for a four door Pcar. But people will probably do it.

The insurance rates on the Panamera are going to be outrageous. Of course, if you can afford to buy the car you can probably afford the insurance, but it's gonna be high.

Not quite sure if I like the interceptor or not, would love to see it in person.

From what I have seen, I love the Panamera, if I had $150k laying around.

Gotta give Ford credit, though, they are coming out with some great commercials :

Are those 24" wheels on the Ford? I'd go for the 26" option myself.
Seriously, how's this car different (better?) than the Hemi optioned Chrysler 300 / Dodge Magnum?

If in need of four doors, I'd take a 3 series BMW any day over those.

funny, even the concept cars coming out of Detroit look "American".

The 300SC may be the poor man's Bentley but with Hemi power and some nice interior treatment it's got no shortcomings. My neighbohr just bought a Bentley Coupe, the idea of spending that kind of money on passenger car seems ridonkulus to me. Ferrari F430 different matter...
