11: Mercury Capri
The Capri was another failed attempt by Ford to garner some traction for the Mercury brand in the 1980s and early 1990s. The first variation of the car was a knockoff of the Mustang 5.0 with a much uglier-looking front clip. The second variation came at the start of the decade in the form of a compact roadster (via Road and Track).
The brand was looking to compete head-on with Mazda and the Miata, but the result wasn’t anything to run home with. The Capri is a blip in the otherwise complicated history of Ford rebadging certain cars and trucks for Mercury.
