Ford has quietly released a new teaser video which suggests a performance car or race car will be unveiled on November 17th - a day before the Los Angeles Auto Show kicks off.

While the video never mentions the car itself, it features a number of executives talking about how important performance is to the company and its future. The video also gives us a few glimpses of a car which features an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, alloy pedals and a high-performance engine. We can also see a mesh grille and unique alloy wheels.

According to Ford Executive Vice President Joe Hinrichs, "Ford Performance and pushing the envelope with our technologies, with our capabilities, demonstrating that on the track or even off-road has been an important part of our DNA."

His sentiments are echoed by Ford CEO Mark Fields who says "It's very important for us to have the street creed to be able to back up what you see in your vehicles, in terms of performance, with actual results in how we do with racing around the world. We can compete with anybody and win."

The comments seem to suggest the mysterious model will be a race car but speculation is pointing to the highly-anticipated Mustang GT350.
