  • IIHS: 2015 Ford Edge is a Top Safety Pick

    By Jennifer Geiger on September 22, 2015

    Ford redesigned its midsize SUV this year, and along with fresh styling and more safety features, the 2015 Edge earned a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The two-row SUV received the top score of good in moderate overlap front, side, roof-strength and head restraint tests and achieved the second-best rating of acceptable in the difficult small front overlap crash test.

    The previous-generation Edge also got good scores in moderate overlap front, side, roof-strength and head restraint tests, but was precluded from achieving the Top Safety Pick award because it had not yet undergone the small front overlap test.

    To get the IIHS' highest safety rating, Top … more

  • Galpin, Fisker Offer Rocket Speedster Concept

    By Tom Murphy-Sep 14, 2015

    The all-new Ford Mustang is selling briskly – 86,769 deliveries through August and clobbering the soon-to-be-replaced Chevy Camaro. So what better time than the present to capitalize on the mystique of the reskinned Mustang?

    Earlier this year, Galpin Auto Sports and Danish designer Henrik Fisker began low-volume production in California of a coach-built, heavily modified version of the new Mustang, dubbed The Rocket.

    With a carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic body crafted by hand at GFMI Metalcrafters in Fountain Valley, as well as significant interior and suspension upgrades, the Rocket is a 4-passenger coupe with a starting price of $109,100.

  • 2015 Galpin Fisker Ford Mustang Rocket: First Drive

    by Steve Siler - Aug. 24, 2015

    Yes, the Galpin Fisker Ford Mustang Rocket has a long name. “We just call it ‘the Rocket’” said Henrik Fisker, who also designed the BMW Z8, Aston Martin DB9 and V8 Vantage, and more recently, the Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid.

    Certainly, “Rocket” is a suitable name for a $109,100 muscle car, but the fact of the matter is that the other named parties have made great contributions, including its builders and tuners, Galpin Auto Sports of Van Nuys, Calif., and of course, Ford itself. We took a brief spin along 17-Mile Drive during Monterey Car Week to see if it’s worth the coin.

    “Ford’s engineers and Moray Callum’s design team did an amazing job with … more

  • Ford Mustang-based Rocket Speedster ready for takeoff

    The last time Henrik Fisker designed a convertible, it was a sleek, plug-in hybrid called the Karma Sunset hat never saw the light of day. His latest likely has a brighter future.

    The Rocket Speedster is a customized Ford Mustang that Fisker penned for Galpin Auto Sports, of “Pimp My Ride” fame. It’s a follow-up to the $125,000 Rocket coupe the collaborators launched last year.

    Inspired by the 1968 Ford Shelby GT500 -- a Fisker favorite -- the wide-body Rocket Speedster features an oversize grille with integrated fog lamps, huge air intakes on its carbon fiber hood, and side scoops on the rear fenders to help cool the 15-inch Brembo brakes tucked inside of its 21-inch wheels. It should be … more

    by Chris Woodyard- Aug 16, 2015

    PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Henrik Fisker, who created a plug-in car company that ended up in bankruptcy court, is looking to start a new venture.

    Fisker, an auto designer whose Fisker Automotive rose about the same time as Tesla Motors, says the timing is right for something completely new. While he doesn't get specific, he says he's intrigued with Milliennials, their craving for new kinds of transportation and their fascination with all things digital.

    "I'm looking into starting a new company," he said Saturday at the unveiling a new customized Ford Mustang venture as a prelude to Sunday's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance here.

    "There's a whole new group of young people ready for the next thing," he says, … more

    Remember the gorgeous Galpin-Fisker Rocket that made its initial debut at the 2014 Los Angeles auto show, and then showcased its production form at the 2015 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance? Well, Fisker is back at the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, with a sumptuous speedster version of the striking Mustang coupe.

    Like the coupe, the new Galpin-Fisker Rocket Speedster’s bones come from a 2015 Ford Mustang. Holding true to the Speedster designation, a specially-crafted carbon fiber rear tonneau cover converts the four-seater convertible into a lithe two-seat roadster.

    Henrik Fisker, renowned designer of the Aston Martin DB9, Vantage V8, and the BMW Z8, turned his pen to the new 20 … more
