Too early to show a Lincoln coupe that is still 3+ years away.

Yes, it's too early for Lincoln to try to generate a little buzz. Best to keep selling to the diminishing generation of "Lincoln customers."

You also don't want to generate buzz and nothing more.

It's also very debatable on how well positioned Lincoln is right now to talk about coupes since they have to settle on a design which I'm sure is very early in the process.

Could they show an aviator concept?

I read that someone was told from a dealer that they are expecting the Aviator late 2018/early 2019

So concept now, production at NYIAS?

Aviator is much farther out, the updated MKX and MKC are in that time frame. Explorer/Aviator are early next decade, we should see it around 2020, maybe a concept at the 2019 AutoShows. I actually think it's farther out than people are expecting (it usually always is), I'm placing it as a 2021 MY product. That would fall in line with the Lincoln product schedule that leaked a few years ago.

Lincoln usually does not do any major product announcements at the Concours. I'm sure they'll have their Navigator present.

Yeah, look at Cadillac with their countless great looking concepts, and then follow them up with nothing.

Reportedly, Hackett has pulled the Explorer/Aviator programs forward (where it should've been to begin with), so it may come sooner than you're thinking.
