Re: Ford can't use Futura name
I don't think that should affect Ford Australia. Its because of some stupid tyre company that isn't even in Australia, and the car here is "Falcon Futura" not plain Futura. Lots of companies use the same name for things anyway...
Holden Monaro GTS, HSV GTS, then you have Dodge Viper GTS and even the Dodge Viper GTSR concept and HSV GTS-R. Nissan (Datsun at the time) had the GT-R badge a long time before anyone, yet then you have Torana XU1-GTR, McLaren F1 GTR, Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR, now a Ford Mustang GT-R concept. Oh, Nissan also did a Skyline GTS-R during the 1990s hehe. Not to mention everyone who uses the name GT..........
