Last Call: Ken Blocks new car is going to be a Fox Body Mustang

If you know who Ken Block is then you know he goes all out for all of his cars. The Hoonicorn Mustang being probably his most notable example. But he also has a Raptor with tracks for wheels and a ’77 F-150 with an engine from the new Ford GT. So when he announces he has a new project in the works, it’s going to be good. This time he’s working with @AshThorp, the creator of the new Batmobile, to design a Fox Body Mustang titled the Hoonifox.

The engine specs aren’t final yet, but they are toying with the idea of an EcoBoost V6, NA V8, or even the electric powertrain from the Mach-E. Whatever he lands on its going to be super rad and I love the look of the render so far.

Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, but it’s also encouraged.

    Welp, one more nail in the coffin that one day I’ll be an overweight guy in a Hawaiian shirt paying too much money for the Fox Body I never had in high school.

      I think because it was cheap, a light at the end of a dark malaise tunnel, and an endlessly modifiable platform. In my case, I got my license in the early 2000’s, so they were right around the bottom of their depreciation curve, and it was a fun, cheap car (same reason 60’s muscle cars got stupidly priced). I’m under no illusion it’s an amazing car, but does hit the right nostalgia buttons.

    That thing is amazing. Wow. My second car was a 93 Fox Body.

    The wide fenders are cool, but otherwise it’s “GT” dialed up to 11. I like Fox Mustangs, but if I pulled the trigger on one, it’d be an LX 5.0, preferably a notchback. I’m not too keen on ground effects, spoilers, and diffusers. And those taillamps are hideous.

    The electric powertrain would work really well if they can keep weight down. Surely the ability to apply infinitely variable amounts of torque to any wheel without the limitiations of wheels connected to each others via mechanical differentials/axles/driveshafts is great for doing fancy skids, though perhaps as something like a Rivian tank turn shows, maybe a little too easy…

      A motor in each wheel, four separate accelerators, and a “I identify as an octopus”-driver…I’d watch that.

    So am I correct in guessing that most of these creations are tube frame race cars that just get some mostly fiberglass body slapped on top of them? Whatever will make a certain segment of Ford fan boys drool.
