The XR4Ti was primarily based on the Ford Sierra XR4i introduced in 1983 in Europe, with design changes made to comply with American crash and emissions regulations. Ford never ever imported the Sierra sedan, but would sooner or later bring over the 1985 Ford Scorpio in ’88 to give Merkur dealers a 4-door luxury model to sell. Both models nonetheless looked reasonably fresh for their age, but the Scorpio was competing with the sleek Mercury Sable on the other side of the same dealership, which was slightly bigger and a lot more exotic-searching, for less money than the Scorpio. The XR4Ti was competing with 3 or four other sporty coupes in Ford’s personal portfolio, made less energy than a Mustang GT, and was rather pricey. The cool functional biplane spoiler was reminiscent of the European Sierra RS Cosworth, but the non-intercooled engine of the US auto paled in comparison to the Cossie screamer.
Judging by the stickers on the window glass, this auto spent considerable time in South Dakota for the duration of the 1970s and ’80s. Interestingly although, it wears a period 1950s California license plate. I wonder if the original plates have been kept when the vehicle moved across country? The front plate has a dealership frame on it from Fred Hudkins of Palo Alto, a city on the peninsula south of San Francisco. From what I’ve read, Fred Hudkins had three dealerships in the Bay Area, but he sold Chrysler goods. So this automobile may possibly have when come by way of their inventory as a employed automobile. There is also a 1959 registration sticker on the front, which is curious to me as such stickers only go on the rear. Possibly the plates were reversed when the automobile was moved back to California and re-registered, so that the original sticker wouldn’t be covered? I’d love to find out more about its history.

Tesla has talked at wonderful length about why they never think the dealership model will work successfully when electric automobiles are sold alongside gasoline or diesel powered vehicles. They claim it is just not attainable to extoll the virtues of electric vehicles with out simultaneously criticizing the rest of their solution line, which just takes place to generate the bulk of your income. Even so Tesla is in a different position than the other OEM’s. They never currently sell any gas powered vehicles so it is straightforward for them to say you can’t sell each in the very same showroom. The other people have no selection, it is either sell them side by side or don’t sell electric vehicles at all.
