i've always found it funny that ford doesn't really offer much in the way of coupes. there isn't even a coupe focus. i think a fusion coupe would be pretty darn cool. there's a two door G6 right?

it looks like a Lexus....... I do not think that would be too successful. The fusion appeals to family types, they want 4 doors.

I like, and think Ford should build something like that to compete with other coupes its size.

Fusion needs new tail-lights.

At first I wasn't too keen on the tail-lights but they've really grown on me. I'm sure aftermarket ones will be available very soon after launch.

I've always thought it would be interesting if the aftermarket came out with "OEM-look" tails for cars that have OEM "Altezza" type lights. I agree though, the Fusion ones, while initially not to my liking, have grown on me a bit.

As far as a 2-Door Fusion, I'd rather see a 2-Door Milan and not a 2-Door Fusion (Maybe SVT-only) as a way to differentiate Mercury a bit.

it makes sense especially if you think about the NASCAR version will look more like a two door.

This car would be cool as an SVT variant, but we know SVT has said they won't do anything that is 1/2 baked. If you take this thing, plop in the new Duratech 3.5L V-6 perhaps with 260hp, I think they'd sell quite a few. You could never support an entire plant with it by itself, but I'd bet you could get 80-100,000 out there a year.

Speaking of an SVT coupe, this photoshop of an SVT Fusion coupe was created by our very own Burningman:

Bah. 3L V6, twin turbo, manual 6-speed, AWD. Worked for Mitsubishi's 3000GT, and this would weigh much less. ^_^

I fully agree that a 3.0L twin turbo would produce more power (duh!) but how exactly would it be lighter? I highly doubt a 3.0L would be significantly lighter than a 3.5L since dimensionally they'll be very close. If you factor in the extra plumbing required for the twin turbos, you'd offset any advantage the 3.0L might have.

Yeah the turbos might add a little more weight, but the power potential is greater! And burningman's coupe is so sweet..If only this car were rear drive

Like I said, I'm not denying the power potential. I'm just curious about the weight comment.
