Neil Young announces Lincoln Continental coming back for 2016MY, likely to replace MK

Neil Young announces Lincoln Continental coming back for 2016MY, likely to replace MKS - WorldCarFans

Could be based on the Ford Taurus

Canadian singer & songwriter Neil Young has indirectly confirmed Lincoln will resurrect the Continental moniker for the 2016 model year.

A couple of years ago Neil Young founded a company called Pono Music which specializes in providing a high-quality audio music download service and now in an interview with CNBC he announced the service will be implemented in the 2016 Lincoln Continental which will benefit from Harman speakers. The artist went on to specify they have already reached an agreement with Tesla and their cars will implement the system once Pono’s music store will be up and running.

LOL.

It's just too hard to contain everything.
Did you know that all the information in the world has doubled in the last 5 years, and will double again sooner than that next time? How on earth do you contain it. You just do the best you can, I guess.

That sounds like heavily veiled confirmation to me!

Someone at GMI said that the Continental will look something like the Aston Martin Lagonda. Is that true?

^^^^

So in Lincoln's efforts to set itself apart from Ford they're going to adopt the very same inspiration as Ford? And no, there is zero chance a Fusion based sedan has a hood even 2/3's that long.

Obviously the grille won't be the same, but the shape and proportions (maybe not the hood length) can be similar.

I would be very surprised if the MKS/Continental is as slab sided as that Aston is given the MKC/MKX both having some pretty significant texturing. On the other hand the MKZ is very similar in lack of detailing, though that was a design that largely predated Max.

The Chinese like boxy, full-size luxury cars like Rolls-Royce's and Bentley's, so I can see why Lincoln may be moving in that direction. It really doesn't fit with the curvy look of the rest of the lineup, but I suppose something wearing the Continental name can be an exception.

The more angular, boxy "Continental" design could set the design stage for future MK Series Lincoln's so sales can rocket up and people will take notice. The roundy asian look doesn't do it for Lincoln. Maybe a future Mercury but not for Lincoln. Now that J Mays has gone from Ford, we can see more new design directions all across, even for Ford vehicles.
