Re: Suicide Doors on Future Lincoln Continental
Since this was teased to the dealers at their dealer show, this is real, how great! It’s just odd as for when...the current design of the rear door can’t be adapted to a rear opening based on how Ford did it for the original Continentals and Thunderbird four doors of the 60’s. Back then the rear doors didn’t cut into around the rear wheel well, and instead were straight on the rear most cut. Even Rolls Royce follows this for their rear doors today. So, logically thinking it must be for the next generation Continental, which normally wouldn’t be until 2022 at least. But to tease the dealers this early doesnt make sense...
But...hold on here, this gets interesting...according to a Facebook page “everything Lincoln” news of this broke a week back of “plans to build a limited edition (500 units) Continental L Black Label with rear suicide doors to honor the Continental history, special order only” hmmm...2019 is the 70th anniversary of the Continental, can this be true, would Lincoln really do this?!
