In what appears to be a design studio, the Taurus is sitting pretty showing some design cues adopted from Ford Europe, more specifically the Ford Mondeo and in the background appears to be a blurry silhouette of a possible next gen Mustang?

A blurry mobile phone image of the all new 2010 Ford Taurus has made its way across the web, first appearing on sites like GMinsidenews.net, TaurusClub.com, Autosavant.com and Jalopnik.com. Ford legal department reacted quickly in having the image removed from all of these sites. Judging by Ford's response it seems that the image was authentic.

In what appears to be a design studio, the Taurus is sitting pretty showing some design cues adopted from Ford Europe, more specifically the Ford Mondeo, and in the background appears to be a blurry silhouette of a possible next gen Mustang? Overall, we like what we see as the design appears to be light years ahead of the current bland and cumbersome Ford America designs. As we have seen with recent winning offerings like the new Focus retaining much of its design from concept to production, let's hope Ford doesn't deviate from this Taurus too much either.

Naturally, in anticipation of Ford's wrath being bestowed upon us, we have decided to show you a lame photo of the current Taurus' tail lamp and nameplate. However, in the ever-expanding universe that is called the Internet, surely the image exists on a server somewhere in the world.
