  • After months of working with high school students in Detroit to build a car, last Friday, the Ford Motor Company has unveiled the finished vehicle: a built-from-scratch replica of the 1965 Shelby Daytona Coupe.
  • Ford worked with more than 50 high school students interested in technical entrepreneurship to build and test the car over a period of 18 weeks. This project— which isn’t the first time Ford has helped high schoolers in the name of education—was created to help Detroit students learn important skills about the automotive industry.
  • Before Ford Motor Co.’s new “change agent” CEO Jim Hackett can move the company forward, he must clean up a toxic corporate culture that had permeated the top of the Glass House until his appointment.
  • Days before former CEO Mark Fields was ousted last month, he was angling to fire his top lieutenant, Joe Hinrichs, to relieve pressure he faced from a skeptical board of directors, sources told Automotive News. Fields’ plan backfired, however, when the board decided instead to part ways with him and communications chief Ray Day, after a May 19 meeting.
