Probe V - 1985  
The Probe V, introduced in 1985, was the last on the line of the Probe concept vehicles. This 2+2 mid-engine Probe offered huge sliding doors opening high into the roof, eight "mini-quad" headlamps in its smooth nose, flush glass, a vertical stabilizer, fully enclosed underbody, and fully ducted cooling. A projected holographic display of the electronic instrumentation and a unique tilt/telescoping steering wheel highlight the interior.

The Probe V also boasted a drag coefficient of a mere .137-lower than an F-15 fighter. Ford claimed it could maintain a speed of 50mph on only 5 horsepower, of which 2 horsepower was needed to overcome head resistance. A dorsal fin steadied the car in crosswinds.
