    Idk, but Jerry talked about ongoing development for the Tbird when the whole Tbird program was suddenly cancelled. I know it included an upscale version of the 96-7 Sport so it only makes sense that there might have been a supercharged concept car for a while, or at least plans for one.

    There was a sort of prototype, that was actually built on a 95, and used a B-headed DOHC engine with an eaton M90 on top.

    I believe you are talking about the 96 SVT Thunderbird that many of us know about. I believe there are pictures of that car on this site.

    I heard it referred to as the SVE bird. Due to Photobucket killing links, I can't find pictures of it, but I remember it was a dark red metallic. There were also pics of the 98 bird that was in development prior to the MN12 being canceled, but I never heard anything about a supercharged version of that.
