In Reply to: They said the same thing about the Edsel. posted by DFF on June 27, 2001 at 18:12:37:

Not to say I'm such a fan of the E65, but the Edsel was a result of outdated market research and technology for its time, and a LACK of the above promised leap in technology and performance that was expected based on the pre-release communication from Ford.

The E65 is not the wrong design or the wrong technology. It is indeed a leap ahead in technology and performance. just takes a little getting used to.

Besides, the design is a matter of taste, and it is VERY subjective. So, it's not as IMMEDIATELY appealing as the E38, but I predict strong sales nonetheless.

We will see.
