What are they gonna drive?

Director Paul Feig answered the question and took to Twitter the reveal the new look of the famed Ecto-1 vehicle for the highly anticipated reboot of the film “Ghostbusters.”

Some fans showed their mixed reactions as the car is completely different from the iconic 1959 Cadillac ambulance used in the 1984 original film.

Although the plate number of the car reads “Ecto-1,” it is unlike any of the models including Ecto-1a and Ecto-1b from the 1989 sequel and the “Ghostbusters: The Video Game”.

They speculate that the new model may either be a 1983 Cadillac Superior or a 1984 Cadillac Fleetwood. While others claim that it is appears to be a 1989 Superior Cadillac Sovereign Commercial Funeral Coach because of the the grille and the design.

Gizmodo reports that Superior Cadillac is actually a descendant of 1959 Cadillac Miller Meteor Combination End Loaders used in the first two movies. The new design is said to be appropriate and in line with Dan Ackroyd’s original hearse design which features an all-black chassis and white and purple lights.

Feig also acknowledged that fans may be freaking out and tweeted that, “Not blocking or deleting. I hear you all and appreciate all your input, good or bad. Thanks.”

The director previously posted the photo of the new proton packs and mentioned that the release of the film will be on July 22, 2016.

When a user asked him whether he decided to cast an all-female ensemble starring comedic actresses Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones to appease the feminists, he said that, “Unless it was to feature the funniest people I know, male or female. Which was what the original did. #enough.”

Other stars appearing in the movie include Chris Hemsworth as the receptionist, Andy Garcia as mayor of New York City, Michael Kenneth Williams as Hawkins, Matt Walsh as Rourke and Cecily Strong as an unnamed character. Time Warner Cable NY1’s anchor Pat Kiernan will star as the news anchor in the film, The Wrap reports.
