Re: Lincoln Considering Mid-Engine Sports Car
I would agree with Sobe. While the thought of a Lincoln sports car is stimulating and boggling of the senses,(so would a new Continental btw) I would agree that first the core product needs the attention so when the sports car arrives, people will be drawn to the showroom to see not only the sports car but all the new and exciting good stuff. Then you have something to sell. If they did it now and people went to the showroom and saw the current stuff, not many would buy in. We can assume this is long range planning once the new revised/improved/defined products arrive.
Did you know that back in the '80's there was a concept Lincoln mid engine 4-door sedan called Quicksilver. It started life as the Ford Quicksilver designed by Ghia studios of Italy(Ford owned Coachbuilder) then this vehicle became a Lincoln. Imagine a mid-engine sedan like this along with the 2-seater mid engine sports car. Heart rate is elevating here.....tha thump tha thump ......lol
