Phoenix was just a code name (rise from the ashes), Ford codenames all their cars. I don't know where you see catastrophic design, I think it looks fantastic, but what I do see is it took the best from every car and put it all in one, except for the engine. About the only thing unique about it is the interior, although it looks like it was lifted off a Buck Rogers cockpit concept.
