To me, a sports coupe should be RWD like the Toyota GT 86, that's what it's all about. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with front drivers, there are some great sports hatches out there, most of which I'd like to own. As for a FWD Capri, not for me thanks, the Mustang is still rear driven & I think Capri would only have a modern following if it was too.
Well, that's what I think anyway

The Ford Cougar pretty comprehensively answers that question good sir.

I think the mass-market for a medium sized coupe was very much reduced by the late 80s.
Hence however good the Probe / Cougar / Calibra had been, they were destined to be niche sellers.
