Mustang goes GT3 racing in '24, mysterious Buick "GNX" Rainier SUV surfaces, an electric Esprit?

Intake: Ahead of this weekend's 24 Hours of Daytona endurance race, the Blue Oval dropped some of the best news we've heard in a hot minute (well, since Monday, anyways): Ford will return to factory-backed GT3 racing with a new Mustang GT3 IMSA race car.

I'm looking forward to a street version of the Mustang GT3. And then all they have to do is drop the completely stupid Mustang label on that silly EV lump and call it something else, because what they've done there is ridiculous.

I know the Mustang name would attract a following, but- the name Futura would have been a lot better.

I'm surprised it took Ford this long to consider racing the Mustang in GT3.

Rainier GNX? Hello torque steer!

No torque steer in an AWD SUV with a rear axle bias.  Remember the Trailblazer SS?

There are Trailblazer SS mods to convert the AWD to RWD, as it originally came in either drive line. Unfortunately many of the remaining SS’s have been beaten up and the good survivors are pricey.

Nice to see Mustang back in GT3. Love hear and see those Le Mans Winners.
