If Ford brings back the Capri, this could be it!
The Ford Capri was Europe’s answer to the Mustang; sure the vehicle was equipped with a smaller engine, but it was still an attractive, rear wheel drive sports car that offered good performance for the money.
Blue oval fans have been spreading rumors about a comeback for the Capri for over a year now. They are saying that Ford will release a Capri concept sometime this year, and hopefully, followed by a production version for 2010.
If the plan does come to fruition, the new Capri would share the same front wheel drive platform as the Ford Focus and will benefit from the company’s new “Kinetic Design.” If the Capri ever hits the streets, look for it to be lining up at stoplights for impromptu time trials alongside hot hatches, like Volkswagen’s new Scirocco.
