Default would anyone happen to know if mercury is going to come out with any new coupes?

I loved the mercury cougar, but now production is obsolete.

Scratch that. I love all smooth coupes with few exceptions. (honda/acura...some mindless bias on my part, have no reason why.)

Doubtful. GM is staying alive with the government's help, I don't think they're going to risk releasing anything new on the Mercury line.

Buy yourself a Toyota Camry and be done with it.

Because they will run 3x longer than a Mercury and drive much better?
