    Thanks for sharing, Andrew!

    I'm in love. It looks really stunning, and it makes a statement.

    By the way, I think that might be the new MKS.

    You should share this with the good folks over at GMI.

    I am thinking MKS also.

    I don't think they would like this kind of stuff, they would talk about how it looks like a whale and how Lincoln is just going to shut the doors in 2 years anyway and what else... OH how they need a CTS fighter right now otherwise they don't even compete with buick

    It looks like the car under the cover we recently seen. Ford wants to make sure the MKS makes a statement when Lincoln enters China and from looks of this it certainly does. Hopefully, the interior will be mind-blowing as well.

    Cadillac is taking a very dangerous path, imo. There are too many BMW wannabe brands in the luxury market and many more will start to appear(Audi). I'm skeptical about Lincoln's plan but at least they're not going to be a BMW follower. The guys over at GM also like to lambast Lincoln over their nomenclature, but they fail to mention Cadillac's(which is worse). Catera Touring Sedan Coupe? That doesn't make any sense. At least Lincoln's nomenclature isn't stupid. Those guys can be complete hypocrites.

    Re: Hands-On Design at the Lincoln Design Studio Opening

    Is that the same studio that is working on the "bespoke" program on the MKZ (BTW, has it been confirmed that the MKZ will optionally get upgraded interior?)?

    I mean, we (probably all) watched the video with the two ladies, showing a high quality interior design of the MKZ. Hopefully, this will be available at some point..otherwise, a huge waste of money..

    I really don't think that's the new MKS in that photo although I could be wrong it looks just like the new MKZ to me.

    (edit 1st)
    GREAT FIND, ANDREW!!!!!
    &
    Mercury&Buick Fan^, the Z has a Lot more creases-grooves-angles esp in the front half
    this is Much smoother

    I only remember the SuvCuv at the Design Center grand opening

    afaik all Lincoln studios are in the Design Center, fairly near to eachother so everyone pretty much knows what everyone else is doing.

    well imho
    designers need to be pretty much constantly 'experimenting'
    & imho
    there's no replacement for doing things in physical 3D


    &

    this^ might be a perfect example of (me) needing physical 3D
    cuz
    imho the pic is plain-boring, boringly-plain
    so
    maybe in person with a mockup, the proportions would change that impression
    tho
    really I hope this is totally preliminary
    ALTHO
    those plain lines of the side would be very easy to stretch for an LTC
    (kinda assuming this is CD4+3 but not the MKT's ovl)
    &
    Imho it goes with the Fusion artwork in that's it's less angular
    +
    it kinda fits in with my notion that real dramatic changes won't happen until the ~2015+ Rwd stuff is seen

    Never mind, it doesn't match up with the one shown above.

    Re: Hands-On Design at the Lincoln Design Studio Opening

    ^ umm...ok

    &
    what I'd like to know "What IS it?" is

    enlargement from Andrew's link

    the very back looks VERY high to me, almost like a bigger Prius, ie neither a sedan not Cuv
    & just don't think it matches the new Z
