Re: What do you want to see from Lincoln?
Again, I would like to see all Lincoln cars on RWD-based platforms (while Ford remains FWD-based except for the legacy Mustang). A mix of FWD & RWD-based SUVs, CUVs, whatever, but all taken seriously upmarket.
In my scenario, the smallest Lincoln sedan (pick-a-name) would share the Mustang platform (Ford would have to evolve or develop some scalability in whatever future Mustang platform they produce). The MKZ (pick-a-name) would grow to Continental size and the Continental would become a true flagship. Later coupes and convertibles would come later for all three car classes.
In my ideal scenario, Lincoln would be Ford's EV pioneer but the cars must have RWD design proportions and weight distribution (is 50:50 too much to ask?).
I don't believe cars are dead. Just trending downward for now. I think the luxury market will support cars more than the mainstream will; how much more I can't say. Just my opinion.
Oh, and there would be a Navigator with those trick gull-wing doors. Like the Ford GT, build limited numbers and price them as if they were Bentleys. They would fly out of the dealers.
