What is the magic formula for the right car? From historic finishes at Le Mans to developing iconic vehicles every generation adores, what is the secret? Or is it a combination of things? What makes a car a winner on the race track and a beauty in the driveway?
Automoblog.net, the automotive lifestyle and culture publication, recently sat down with Ford Performance Global Director, Dave Pericak for an in-depth interview on this topic. Pericak and his team were the subject of the 2015 film, A Faster Horse, directed by David Gelb.
"Pericak shared the secrets behind what makes a performance car successful," said Automoblog Managing Editor, Carl Anthony.
Pericak highlighted the importance of teamwork and why Ford's recent historic win at Le Mans was so important. When it comes to developing a car everybody loves, be it in the winner’s circle or at home, the pressure is intense.
"The Ford Performance team faced a multitude of challenges but they prevailed in stunning fashion," Anthony said.
Pericak also touched on how Ford survived the economic fallout that brought the U.S. automakers to the verge of bankruptcy.
