PSFK asks “was the Ford 021c ten years too early?” you’d have to say sadly yes, but in reality no way. You don’t hire Marc Newson too pump out some standard shit do you? So don’t be confused when he delivers this odd ball. In the end who knows if it was too early because Ford didn’t have the balls to produce it and really see. Although the cynical would say that it was never Fords intention to do so, just a PR exercise… to appear as though… etc. I loved this thing when I first saw it, and it stood the test of time (short-term-time). And the design geek name. Beautiful.
