Please Stop: Ford Capri Becomes Unrecognizable

While the Mercury Capri never quite matched the Ford Mustang on the domestic market, the former became a performance icon in Europe. Chasing the success of the Cortina’s numerous sporting variants, Blue Oval thought the region might want a coupe to fill a niche similar to the Mustang’s. The gamble worked and the feisty little fastback went on to be a big success in Europe.

Absent from the market for decades, Ford has opted to revive the model. Sadly, the resulting product represents its predecessor in no way. Rather than being a sprightly lightweight coupe wearing the blue badge, it’s another electrified crossover.

It turns out the Ford Performance F-150 Lightning SuperTruck was so bloody quick at Pikes Peak that it won the 102nd running of the hill climb despite coming to a dead stop along the route.

  • VoGhost Love this collective clutching of pearls over a vehicle name not a single commenter will ever see, drive or buy.
  • 28-Cars-Later "Here's why" edition_cnn_com/2018/06/13/health/falling-iq-scores-study-intl/index.html
  • 28-Cars-Later Seriously, $85. GM Delta I is burning hot garbage to the point where the 1990 Saturn Z-body is leagues better. My mother inherited an '07 Ion with 30Kish otc which was destroyed in 2014 by a tipsy driver with a suspended license (driver's license enforcement is a joke in Pennsyltucky). Insurance paid out $6,400 when it was only worth about $5,800 IIRC, but sure 10 year later the "hipo" Delta I can fetch how much?
  • Buickman styling does not overcome powertrain, follow the money. labor/materials.
  • VoGhost It's funny, until CDK raises their prices to cover the cost. And then the stealerships do even more stealing because they're certainly not taking the hit - why do you think they make all those political donations? So who pays in the end?
