Back in 2002 Ford has killed Cougar model while the Mercury brand itself was phased out in 2011, as FMC repositioned its efforts on the Ford and Lincoln brands.
Luckily enthusiasts like the already well known Kevin Morgan [mostly famous for his Trans Am and 6T9 Goat] didn’t give up on the cat and released his interpretation of Mercury Cougar.
Gotta say Kevin succeeded almost perfectly ’cause there’s no trouble in recognizing the brand and the model too. The rear end is obviously based on the 5th generation Mustang while the 3/4 front view merges clues from both Mustang’s fascia and probably Challenger’s rear fender. According to other enthusiast comments, this concept is worth the production line. If not, there’s still some hope Kevin will make a one-off model, just like the TA or the goat..
