For many, many years – or rather decades, the Ford Mustang was sold exclusively as a two-door sports car. That all changed last year with the introduction of the Mustang Mach-E as the brand’s first all-electric crossover with four doors and a more practical body. We can’t help but wonder: What would the EV predecessor of the 1960s look like?
Designer wb.artist20 is here to give us a potential answer to this question. One of his latest renderings takes a 1968 Mustang GT500 KR and turns it into a four-door (kind of) Utility vehicle bearing all of the signature design features of the original.
Obviously, proportions aren’t something to be proud of – the overall shape is reminiscent of the Mustang Mach-E, but the more muscular profile of the ’60s original doesn’t seem to fit the idea particularly well. And it’s not something the artist did wrong – it’s just the nature of the beast. The front is a bit higher to better reflect the transformation into a high-driving machine – and that’s something that goes well with the two additional headlights in the upper grille.
“What if Ford had introduced the Mustang with a crossover variant from the start,” the artists ask rhetorically. “Maybe he called it the ‘Mach G’? Don’t so many people like the Mach E yet? Or is it an electric vehicle that a lot of people don’t like. ? Or maybe people would have hated him back then too? Questions come to mind “

To say that the Mustang Mach-E received mixed reactions from fans and customers would be an understatement – for at least a few months, it was probably the most discussed topic in the auto scene. This new reverse interpretation is unlikely to resolve the dispute, but the point is obviously different.
