    Cougar Concept Cars

    Since some people in this forum are getting too exciting and too hot about the cougars return if it does or not, or about info about it or accusing people who dont know anything about the Cougar S here is a little info about it

    http://www.scottgrundfor.com/concept/1999cougar.html


    This website has pics of a 2004 Concept Cougar and other type of concept cougar pics

    1) Cougar S
    2) Eliminator
    3) mc2 concept

    Also to let you guys know The Cougar was the original car out of the Celica/eclipse/tiburon to have the body it has on it now. Cougar did not copy the Eclipse in any way shape or form, also it didnt copy anything from the celica or the tiburon like some people have been saying.

    Re: Cougar Concept Cars

    Also I wish I still had the pictures but Ford had a Retro Cougar concept car that looked just like the new Mustang that just came out except it had the 68 style lights in the front and the Tail lights in the back and rebadged it the Cougar. it looked 10x better than the mustang. Wish I could find the picture to show you all. Hope somebody has it on this forum.

    i hope they dont remake the cougar any time soon. I like owning a car on a technically "dead" platform.

    Even if they do bring the Cougar name back, the platform that its built upon will still be long, long dead.

    Re: Cougar Concept Cars

    The 99-02 Cougar was based on the Mercury MC2 Concept Car from 1997.



    The 01/02 Cougar followed the concept more closely in front-end delivery (The bottom of the front bumper). The major carryover points from the concept to the real car other than profile and body lines were the sideview mirrors and the door handles, two things that I'm sure Ford would have loved to have just pulled from stock but the designers said no.

    The Cougar S was never going to be a 248hp AWD car, that was just the concept. The production version was just going to be like the SVT Contour with the Cougar body.

    And yes, we all already know that everyone ripped off the Cougar's bodylines.

    Just look at the new Honda Cougar! Er, I mean, Honda Accord!

    The '04 NECO calendars had the concept sketches of the Cougar in the final pages.
