Will there ever be a new Ford Capri? Rumours of a twenty-first century version have been racing around for....well, most of this millennium. Time to make it or forget it. I say get cracking and launch this two-door rocket. Ford can then fight for the affordable coupé market which features the Volkswagen Scirocco, Toyota Celica, and Hyundai Coupé. These fun-focussed machines are tremendously popular, but Ford has the expertise to create a mighty competitor. After all, even the C-Max MPV feels entertaining and capable.

But here comes the killer point. If Ford launch a new Capri – it must actually be a new Capri. This means bringing the late model's striking styling bang up-to-date. No super- glueing a 'Capri' badge to the back of a three-door Focus please. No tame front-wheel- drive nonsense either - this machine must be a seriously thrilling sports car. I suspect then the new Ford Capri would be staggeringly popular. Quite a contrast to the previous 'new Capri', the unloved Probe. Can you imagine Doyle from The Professionals driving that?
