Ford is wasting no time shifting its mindset towards electric vehicles.

Ford isn’t a stranger to electric vehicles; after all, the company did make available an electric version of its Focus compact hatchback.

Ask a few muscle car guys what car they would go back in time and buy if they could, and a handful of them would say the classic, and incredibly valuable, Ford Boss 429 Mustang from 1969.

Siemens really thought that when it brought its sweet looking classic 1965 Mustang to the Goodwood Hill Climb that it would fly up the hill and do autonomous cars proud.
