The article says that Porsche "decided" to build that car. I'm guessing that means it was a free upgrade? lol

I don't think they want to try any PIT maneuvers with that car...it would be a costly repair!

Don't think I'd like to see it in my rearview mirror either.
Probably light up like a christmas tree..... :eek:

Why can't I have one of those for a patrol car? I promise not to run it too hard or scare any Sunday morning church ladies. Please??? BTW I can have the car paid for in no time at all, think of the personal pride in having a Porsche pulling you over for a traffic related offense...

I wonder if they're going to use it or just keep it as a promotional piece?

I saw a New Taurus one around here with all "undercover" style lights in the grill and in the cab of the car. Looks pretty cool, Ford kind of blew it by dropping the Vic but the new Taurus is definitely a step up from the old stuff

Times in the auto industry are tough. Manufacturers don't make a lot of money off cop cars because of the huge fleet discounts. And that chassis was only used in the Crown Vics and the last of the full sized Lincolns.

Fords have been getting better and better since they had to tighten their belt. I firmly believe Ford is far and away the best current US auto maker. My 07 Escape Hybrid I bought in May of 06, is the best car I've ever owned. Hope I don't jinx myself, but I've got over 100k on it now without a problem.

I have an 06 Fusion myself with just about 85000mi. I hear they are super reliable also, I know my 2000 Taurus was a peice of junk, pretty much done, not worth working on anymore past 130,000. Always did like the Vics, was considering a used Interceptor before I got the Fusion and the Maruader was a good looking version. Sadly the Vics are super inefficent, a mid 2000s Honda 3.0soc got the same HP as the Vics 4.6soc (2002 and newer dual exhaust). But yes, Ford did step their game up after 05/06

If that was in Southern California all the street racers would be figuring how increase the boost on their turbocharged Uber cyber engines made out of that rare metal called "unobtanium" so they could out run it...We got 9 second cars out here that are dropping the kids off at junior high school on their way to the grocery store..keeps the LEO's on their toes.
