Rumor: Ford GT successor in the works, may be an electric supercar

Ford GT

If what we’re about to tell you is true – just know that we’re really excited. According to rumors coming out of Dearborn, Michigan, FoMoCo is considering a new high-priced halo supercar to succeed the legendary Ford GT. However, don’t expect a traditional supercar because rumor has it that Ford is planning a fuel-efficient, or electric, low- or no-emissions “green” supercar.

Unlike the previous GT, this new GT will have to be a little more plush and luxurious – think along the lines of the Audi e-tron, Porsche 918 Spyder and the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-CELL.

If you’re looking for something more affordable than six-figure electric supercar from Ford, hang on because the automaker is also working on an electric version of the Ford Focus, which will be available in late 2011.
