new ford taurus spy shot revealed

We're not quite sure how one of TTAC's Best and Brightest got ahold of this image of the new Ford Taurus, but ours is not to question why (ours is to do and, uh, that's it). It sure is a handsome beast– throwing the new new Taurus' (né Five Hundred) Audi-aping shape into the bin where it belongs. Imagine if this car turns into a mega-hit for Ford? How ironic would that be? The car that saved Ford before saves Ford again, birthed by the exec who's career was inspired by the tale of the first Taurus' birth. At this point, all we know is that Ford's legal department is very busy this morning. Or it could be a head fake; an intentionally leaked shot. We'll give you more information as it arrives.

    I'm surprised Ford hasn't got to you yet...

    You look at this and wonder why J Mays still have their jobs as it clearly rejects the VW/audiesqe mingled with Red White and Blue styling direction set forth by Mays. Martin Smith's kinetic design is clearly the world wide direction of Alan Mullaly's One Ford plan.

    Dear Ford, Please - for the love of god - do yourself a favor and build this car.

    I don't think this is technically an evolution of the Mondeo ... according to the Edmunds article linked up-thread, the Mondeo is more nearly the size of the Fusion. I think they're just evolving the Mondeo's look, not its platform. More's the pity.
