Any of you Ford guys know what the future coupe picture looks like for Ford/Merc? GM I am happy to say looks like it's getting back in the coupe business.

Mercury tried to bring the coupe back a' la Cougar but it got canned after 4 short years. I just don't think they can pull it off. They should stick to sedans and SUVs.

Mercury should either bring back the Cougar and sell it a lot better, or at least not get rid of it after just 4 years!

I think they should bring back the 2 door versions of the Mercury Topaz XR5, yeah its not "THE" sports car, but its a 2 door - which Mercury lacks any at this time.

Why not also the Capri perhaps? Its a somewhat sports car I think...I actually dont know much except my mom had one when she was younger and hated it.

Mercury Cougar, Mercury Capri and Mercury Topaz XR5 for coupe lineups...not too shabby I think.

Or just invent something totally different on the Mercury line...lord knows Merc lovers need some fresh stuff.

Here's what I think:

Ford: continue with what they're doing...new Mustang, 500, Freestyle, etc.
Mercury: just bring over the Australian/European Fords like the Falcon, Mondeo, etc. You don't have to build them there, just build them here looking exactly the same!
Lincoln: continue with what they're doing...new Aviator should be good.
