I don't know if there is anything conclusive, but it has been brought up recently. https://rennlist.com/forums/991/1127...ringement.html

I think it's a universal icon, similar to the raised middle digit.

They certainly didn't rip off the exhaust note!

Wow, it looks like Ford ripped off the seatbelt and low-tire pressure warning lights too! Sue the bastards!

Bob Z., my entry had absolutely nothing to do with your remark.

It was made referencing the earlier thread I had started titled "Trademark Infringement" over Ford's use of the exhaust icon that was identical to the one in our cars, same as this thread.

No need to take offense because none was meant or directed to you or anyone else, well maybe excepting Ford for being a copycat.

Porsche copied the Mustang for the 992 dash buttons. The new Mustang (or last year's model; I was driving a rental convertible) automatic gear lever looks very similar to 991 aluminium pdk stick shifter.

They both must have the same supplier. Lol
