'The Cougar and Puma will really get us back into the sports market,' said a Ford insider. 'It's true that the Probe was a disappointment, but now we feel very confident about the future. The Cougar will generate the type of reaction we experienced with the Capri - especially in the fleet and user-chooser market.'
