While the enthusiasts on the previous few pages seem accepting, others are loudly pondering whether the can really be a ’ after abandoning seven decades of front-engined tradition. Yet the US firm isn’t the first to mess with a tried and tested formula in the pursuit of greater performance or profit – or both. Here are 10 examples that have travelled a similarly contentious path with varying levels of success.

Is the facelifted Jaguar F-Type spry enough (especially in amped-up R form) to compete with the fresh 992-generation 911 Carrera 4S? The is back, with a fresh look and an assortment of new bells and whistles. They have, thankfully, resisted the urge to treat it to a new pair of beige slacks and a matching M&S cardigan, although that must have been tough.

A variety of seriously quick machines, including racing lorries and superbikes, fight it out on the runway. Pirates of the Caribbean didn’t start life as a huge film franchise, as you might know. At first, it was just a Disneyland theme park ride – a few-minute thrill whose name and vague theme, decades after its launch, someone concocted a plot around and threw Johnny Depp into. Similarly, this story didn’t start out as a magazine feature at all.

A Freelander for under £10 grand? Get it right and you gain an all-rounder for an absolute steal; get it wrong and the repair bills will be never-ending. We can’t be serious? Relax, the is a very different animal from the original – much more reliable and of a higher quality. That said, if you don’t get the tyre pressures absolutely right or you wear the tyres close to the limit, you can fool the system into engaging four-wheel drive. If that happens at speed, expect a large repair bill. But that aside, the model is so capable and comfortable that some enthusiasts reckon it’s a kind of mini . We’d not go that far but it’s certainly a jack of all trades, with a plush interior and off-roading chops. We’d plump for a later, facelifted car, such.

Ford aims to take the crossover class by storm as it revives the Puma name. Given that the Puma of the late 1990s arrived with the bold tagline ‘A driver’s dream’, Ford’s decision to reprise the name of its pint-size coupé on the tailgate of a crossover seems perplexing.With a larger frontal area, a higher centre of gravity and more weight, this new Puma clearly distances itself from traditional ‘driver’s dream’ territory where the 1034kg original did everything budgets would allow to get closer.But times have changed.

How do you feel just now about a car like the McLaren GT? Extravagant supercars (and hairstyles) seem out of place in these troubled times. But perhaps that's the secret to their appeal. This feels like a rash time to be making predictions, but I was going to go out on a limb and say that the well-oiled, heavily styled beard and the man-bun (ask your kids) will be fading memories by the end of the year. This is no time to be indulging in extravagant grooming activity; even though, ironically, some of us have more time than ever to treat ourselves. Yet here we are.
