Many of the brakes that fit our cars work like that already.

I have to say the 500/taurus is not related in any significant way to the 6/fusion.
For one the 500 is a very large car, much larger than the others. Second the 500 uses a completely different suspension setup. The front end is a strut suspension with the rear looking like a big Volvo sourced setup. Very un like the rear shared with the 6/fusion/3 ans focus.
If it is ifact based on the G platform it has ben changed so completely it really dosnt matter. Remember the millenia was a G chassis car as well and nothing interchanges there.

The backs will need a bracket made up to make everything line up.
May be a good sideline winter project.
We shall see.
I'm all for new brake options but be carefull with any physical mods to the brakes.
A member here did claim to have fitted mustang cobra calipers and rotors and that should allow the same fitment of the 99+ mustange 12" rotors and 2 pot PBR calipers as well. I think the 500 front calipers might infact be the same calipers possibly with different brackets.
