The Probe was a highly competent car, but saddled with the aura of being a latter-day Capri, which it clearly wasn’t. Powered by a 160bhp 2497cc V6, it was good for 137mph and a 0-60mph time of 8.5 seconds. Today, however, it’s almost forgotten, but good examples can still be tracked down. A fairly short production run, from March 1994 to July 1998, combined with (surprisingly for Ford) lacklustre marketing didn’t help the Probe’s cause and today that translates into little classic interest. The upside of that is low value, but anyone thinking about owning one of these clean coupés should be on the lookout now.
