MotorWeek Take Us Back To 1987 For A Review Of The Thunderbird TurboCoupe And Mustang GT

Video / 24 Comments

Remember when turbos were exciting and not a sign of the end of times?

Ford, as well as quite a few other manufacturers, has certainly been diving head first into turbocharging over the past few years. But it is a pool that it dipped its toe into a long time ago, with turbocharged models in the 80s becoming surprisingly mainstream for a brief period. And here we have MotorWeek's contemporary review of the 1987 Ford Thunderbird TurboCoupe giving us a reminder (or a history lesson, for those a bit younger) of what we all thought of them back then.

The video also takes a look at the Mustang GT of that year, which is another great point of reference for the new version of the car.
