Coupes seem to be the next big thing. In Europe, for example, Ford is considering bringing back is the legendary Capri as a competitor for the newly launched Volkswagen Scirocco . At the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show Ford will celebrate the coupe’s 40th anniversary with the launch of a concept version of the future Capri. This follows the footsteps of the Visos concept launched in 2003 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
After the concept version, the Capri will be unveiled as a coupe and probably also as a convertible model. A six-cylinder engine is expected, but a possibility is also new four and five-cylinder engines to give the car a power range from 140 to 250 hp.
Because the Capri is expected to be built on an existing small or mid-sized car platform, it may be chosen to come to the U.S. along with other smaller European Ford models .
