Re: Mission2020: The RETURN of MERCURY!

(re)seeing Mazda's RX-Vision Concept in a TTAC article on fb led me back to the STARstang: the Beginning thread to see if I had a chop posted as I almost remember (not found yet)

My mantra for Lincoln is still Product Differentiation.
started wondering about keeping the STARstang sportSedan as the littlest Lincoln

going with Mercury for the Coupe as an authentic Cougar...

...gonna hafta ponder - might be a re-start for my Mission2020 rants

maybe just: Cougar / Capri / Mariner** / allroad-y nextgen S-Max?
** with MKC moving up to Macan-hood
maybe an Electric S650 coupe would still be ok as a Lincoln? tho would hafta use some sportsedan sheetmetal

- thinking S-Max is just too big
- thinking a sub-Mariner, not quite jeepish/bronco-ish
thinking about carbon fiber extended-cladding in place of wood-grain sticker

...actually-maybe ALL sheetmetal replaced with c.f but with just the roof and rocker-area exposed
