Automaker considers building coupe based on the Mustang

Ford has acknowledged studying a Mustang-based Mercury. A company insider says the Lincoln proposal is more serious.

The Lincoln would have a unique interior and exterior. But it would share underpinnings with the Mustang, which was redesigned for the 2005 model year to great fanfare.

The first Cougar was a luxury mustang and it had SWEET taillights that blinked in progression from the inside out.

In the 80's the Cougar and the T-Bird were the same car. I had one of those Cougars and loved it.

The Capri, if I'm not mistaken, actually got REALLY small and became a two-seater before it dies..

A new Cougar would be nice - but not like the one that just went away. The Cougar should be a luxury sport like it always has been. The 80s Cougar/Thunderbird was very nice.. The early 90s was even nicer, to me...

Maybe it will force Cadillac to finally catch up and bring out a sports coupe. Everyone else has one. If Cadillac had a decent sports coupe, I wouldn't have to resort to idolizing that Infiniti G35...

I totally think that Lincoln (and Cadillac) should bring back their sports coupes!!!
But if they based it off the Mustang, wouldnt it be too small?

This is very interesting , Remeber 05 Mustang Came from the Lincolin LS (dew98 platform), Lincolin LS dies , leaves Mustang , Mustang gets knocked up and produces a new car for lincolin ....

technicly IRS from the LS can bolt up to mustang fairly easy....so it will probably arrive with the new lincolin merc car....

As for Capri , Mcomibe , we did get the Capri you all enjoyed in the 70s(1970-1978) , very nice cars and if i remeber right ours even got the colonge V6 ....but im not positive on that ....Capri then went to the Mustang as sandy pointed out in 79 , ran till 86 ....

Then after 5 years of no capris we got the 91-94, capri became a 2 seat sportscar built by Mazda Austraila off the european 323 , it was even avaible as a turbo , but it was never respected becuse it was front drive , it enjoyed about the same poplarity as the 90-91 Lotus Elan S2...


Another Interesting Capri note is Ford is Studying bringing the Capri back to europe under the living Legends program , which as you notice gave birth to such things as the new GT and the Mustang
