Name That Car: Blame engineerd Edition

The engineerd Mystery Car. No cheating, now!

As we all know, engineerd was at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit with UDMan last week. Because he’s a bit of a bastard, he decided to take a few ultra-close photos of tiny little details that should define a vehicle for people who know them.
Unfortunately, he’s taking photos of concept cars that aren’t in production yet! Oh noes! Yeah, suck it up, it shouldn’t be that hard if you know Dustin. Now go! Identify the vehicle, right down to the option package and tire brand.

      how about 2011 Ford F150 Raptor with the Coyote motor?

      1. engineerd Avatar

        IIRC, this one still had the 5.4L motor, but it's hard to tell. I don't think there are any obvious external clues and nobody was around to tell me.
        Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

          No external clues, at least on the TT and PP prototypes. Main difference is the sound. Three tons of truck and driver do an excellent job of absorbing that extra hundred horsepower. I think if I were going to buy one of these for my own, I'd be plenty happy with the 5.4.

    Since it's Engineerd… I would say a Ford GT. But I know that isn't correct.

    I'm not a bastard. See…within minutes the car was identified. Plus, I know who my dad is.
    /Wanders off mumbling, "These kids are good. I need to step up my game."

      Welcome to my world. I've thrown out some Name That Parts, thinking, "This should take them a while." Then they've solved it within a minute. Bastards.

        Yeah, I amazed even myself by being such a dick that I identified that Borg Warner Overdrive cable t-handle, immediately. I saw one in a Packard.
        You should have been answering the submission line when I sent the Ruby Mystery Engine shots to Schmo. That was a stumper.

      You might have had better luck with a detail or two from that BMW 700 headlining the sales regret post. I haven't seen one of those for years …

        Oh, trust me. The next time I send Dearthair a photo for a guessing game, it's going to be something unique. No more softballs for this bunch!

    See, as far as I could tell, the Raptor had zero coverage at NAIAS this year, so I was hesitant to guess it.

    There was one sitting in the back of Ford's expansive booth — seriously, that place was bigger than my house. Of course, I was immediately drawn to it and, since it was out of the way, proceeded to do naughty things to it.
    Wait…come back! Did I say too much?

      The automotive blog world already has one Ray Wert.

        I made Ray look like a boy scout.

          There is a double meaning there.

          Jeeze, does the GT40 have a restraining order on you then?

    The straight stripe. Gotta love them. Why more cars don't have them is beyond me.

    1. superbadd75 Avatar

      Because it would be one more thing for customers to bitch about when they don't align their cars regularly and the stripe is off center.

      1. lilwillie Avatar

        Yup. Amazing how a little stripe is so obvious but without it most don't even realize the wheel is off center.

    Something that needs 5 inch larger tires.

  9. rocketrodeo Avatar

    Definitely a Raptor. I stared at that stripe during months of development work.
