a FWD-based 112" wlb allows MUCH more interior room = bigger car
than a RWD with same/close wlb (see how short overhangs are on the 3er-types) &
Look at the '''prestige gap''' of 'wasted' space on the C-clash
WHICH gives 50/50 balance INSTEAD of interior room.
Z & LincStang with similar wlbs are Not similar otherwise
how many seats does an SL have?
quick-googling dimensions tells me only 2 real ones
...Z, X, and C
If they do a coupe, it needs to be a true full-size Continental Mark that's based on whatever the Continental sedan is based on (don't feel like getting into the 'D6' or 'CD6' rumors). In Lincoln's case, there's no sense in making specialty vehicles like coupes in several different sizes. Coupes just don't sell like they used to. It would be better to have one excellent specialty coupe with a really great heritage.
Mark Series is about...
I need a decade or so change my recent perception of MK
some years ago (on BON) we talked about 2 cars built off (whatever) Continental platform,
one more formal, one more swoopy
(in the Mission too)
they-then & I mho think something sorta CLS (or now Panamera) would sell much better than a large 2-door
there IS one 2-door already waiting in the partsbin which isn't going away...
...so a large one for Lincoln means double expense
