not sure... I'm skeptical, looks almost like it's based on the 300C.

oh boy, sketches, it must be truuuuue!

I'm gonna guess that a purpose-built police car won't sell in enough quantity to sell in enough numbers to be produced in enough volume to get costs down enough to get the price down to appeal enough to police fleets to sell in volume to... etc, etc.

I've been saying that for a while too... a modern B-body with hydroformed rails

& other modern advabces would kick Ford's ass so hard their grandkids would

feel it! I wish that would happen!

No way the market could support this, no matter how good the car might be.

I'm wigth you Camino... unless a lot of parts bin-scrounging was to happen.

When I started reading the article I expected it to be LS1 powered or

perhaps HEMI powered but inline-6 turbo-diesel? I'm assuming that means

it is supposed to have a Cummins under the hood...?

Cop cars are not about efficiency... they're about performance & durability.

No one cares that you're getting 28mpg if you can't catch/overtake the bad guy!
