Hard to Believe I Haven't Posted These Before...

2010 Taurus-based Thunderbird coupes. I just saw a Taurus-based T-bird coupe on another website, and wanted to link to these two similar chops of mine, and couldn't find them on my blog. I might not have "labeled" them correctly, or maybe I just never posted them on the blog. In either case, these are my ideas for a modern AWD Taurus-based T-bird coupe. The top one is my ideal Thunderbird, ie, pillarless coupe with classic Sixties T-bird cues. The bottom one is more of a modern version of the last 5-seat Thunderbird, the '89-96 or whenever they stopped building it, lol, a 2 door pillared sport coupe. These two examples show just how much diversity can be achieved in Photoshop, as both began as a new 4-door Taurus sedan.


  1. Well, I like these both very much. I would market them as a Thunderbird (the red) and a Taurus Victoria. That was Ford's original name for their hardtop in '51, as I'm sure you know! Or perhaps Taurus Club Victoria as they called the 2-door hardtop startign in '56. The Thunderbird would make a fabulous convertible as well. Or you could close off the rear quarter windwo and make it a Landau!

    Well done!

  2. Brilliantly done, both are very cool, but I love the top one in red the most. It is nostalgic & modern all at the same time and I don't think Ford would have to make that many changes to this design if they were to make a production version based on their 4 door Taurus.

    The grey one is also interesting, sort of a Passat CCish to me.

  3. Wow, that first one is incredible.

    You do some incredible work.
