Have you noticed the new Messenger concept car from Mercury w/ a 460hp 4.6 liter v8 (probably the new "cammer"), RWD, 2 seater, based off the Lincoln LS platform? I couldn't help but think of the potential if this car would become a four passenger sport luxury slightly more roomy than the new LS based mustang and properly named "Cougar," will Mercury be bright enough to see the potential of this?

The rumors i have heard circulating is that it will be the new Mercury Capri :2huh:


But it won't see a 460HP engine. Ford's motto is "thou shalt not beat the Cobra" much like GM always detuned the F-body to keep it apart from the vette.

Quick solution is to up the hp on the cobra, how 'bout 500 hp. Don't you think the last car Mercury needs in their line up is a two door. What they need is a CLK, 3 series beater rightly called "Cougar"

The Mercury devision is dead. Marauder was supposed to help it - but lack of advertising is causing them to sit on lots.

Ford won't build a car that nice and badge it as a Mercury. Then again, Ford does alot of screwy things - so who knows!
