...also Lincolnís centennial (with ford) is coming up rite around the time the last of the four vehicles should debut.

Lincoln isnít going to sell people on them being a maker of sexy 2 door coupes at the moment but they need a style halo car that can also be spacious enough for luxury customers. I think at this point they canít get back into the personal luxury coupe market and it would be a waste of money.

If mercedes can still do a 2 door halo type vehicle why can't Lincoln? They had one for most of their existence and cost would probably be minimal if it shares the same platform as the mustang. It's a status symbol.

I'd be all for a properly impressive Lincoln coupe, but i think the marque would need to get at least 2-3 very solid sellers in place before they could do that kind of niche vehicle.

Re: BEYOND UNCOVERED: Lincoln's Future Lineup SPECULATION

fwiw/imho
seeing as the prestige-gap of a Rwd(proportion) car adds maybe 4-6" to the wheelbase,
(not changing interior-space nor-even-maybe overall length)
I'm thinking at least 116" for the Z/reMARKment ... anyone think the Aviator's is longer??
kinda feel they could be the same, whatever that is

Anyone heading to Javits wanna try to measure?

since we now have this MotorTrend link in 2 (Long) threads that have been going for quite some time with many topics in them;
think I'm gonna stick mine HERE (in this shorter/newer thread, that SORTA was started from J.Falotico's new tenure...)
PLUS a bit of Non-FiN BACKGROUND (below, via Falc'man/M6g )
& crossreferencing: LINCOLN 12-STEP program: #1 & 2... (hopefully, Less speculative)

Really great interview with Joy Falotico about Lincoln. MotorTrend asked all the right questions. She unfortunately avoided directly answering anything, but she touches on the RWD platform, and also she hints that the Aviator will have more than a 30 mile pure EV range.

http://www.motortrend.com/news/linco...rview-aviator/
She gives a lot of corporate answers but one thing she mentions is a replacement for the MKZ so that's been confirmed.

On M6G one of the members is saying Mustang will not go over to CD6 for the reason that it'll ruin Mustang's proportions.

My take on the situation:

(Has) a CD6 based mustang cancellation been confirmed?
That was the plan so far, but something changed. Canít say more about it.

Everything about the new S650 mustang is a mess and difficult to get enough information especially when we are still a couple of years away. Iím going to say something though, the original plans of the S650 were for a 2021MY car... donít you think that something *significant* changed so they had to move it one year as a 2022MY? Just think about it, itís not written in stone yet.
Time will tell.
From CD6 we know there are the following;
Ford sedan,
Plus the same from Lincoln (not confirmed),
Maybe Mach1 is on this platform,
Maybe Lincoln version of Mach1,
Explorer,
Aviator,
And, if Mustang was ever going to stand a fighting chance to remain profitable, and to make CD6 even more profitable, one would expect it to borrow from this platform. Like Alpha Camaro does.

Logic says its CD6. I'm trying to think of reasons why they'd keep it on the same platform besides what Twin Turbo mentioned re proportions and there simply aren't any. I don't believe CD6 is an evolution of S550's platform otherwise Farruko's brother wouldn't be so upset.

That's potentially 7 or 8 vehicles from the one platform, or, split those vehicles into 2 groups where the sedans and SUVs are on CD6 and anything coupe-like goes on the Mustang platform.

Platform-sharing is important, with much more emphasis being placed on it from Ford, so if it stays on the existing platform I would expect the followiing:
Mustang,
Ford 4-door coupe,
Lincoln coupe,
And Lincoln 4-door coupe,
Mach1

Problem with that is they never mentioned any 4-door coupe in the recent press release. Perhaps they didn't need to.

Re: BEYOND UNCOVERED: Lincoln's Future Lineup SPECULATION

my extracts from MT that I didn't have time to post earlier
MT Interview: Lincoln Chief Joy Falotico on Aviator, Other Future Products
...The new head of Lincoln talks SUVs, China, electrification, and more...
JF: ...we are going to have two new utilities. This is just one of them [Lincoln Aviator], so we have another one to come. And we have four new vehicles around the corner. So getting those vehicles in the pipeline and getting them to market is clearly a priority.
MT: They will be a combination of new nameplates and next-generation models?
JF: Yeah. It’s safe to assume that...
MT: ...The name [Aviator] almost has more equity than the vehicle itself.
JF: With this new vehicle, I think we’ll change that...
MT: ...Design-wise... ...but engineering-wise [Continental] was still on an old platform.
JF: We are looking at other things that we can do with Continental**, and we’ll have more to say about that later.
** suicide doors ...
MT: ...Will Lincoln set itself apart from Ford by offering electrified versions across the lineup?
JF: Yes, it will be. It’s across the lineup, and it’s all about the new technology. The other piece of it is it fits right into our brand DNA. We’re calling it a “quiet flight” because with the electrified powertrain, that’s how quiet it is. You don’t even hear the car, so it fits right into what we’re doing with the brand and the DNA so that you know you’re in a Lincoln.
MT: Will it vary by model whether it is a hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or full EV?
JF: At this time we’re not making any announcements on that, but we’re starting with the plug-in hybrid while technology evolves on the BEVs.
MT: There will be a pure Lincoln EV at some point?
JF: Anything’s possible...

BEYOND UNCOVERED: WHITE SPACE... 8-o

copied from the Officially Cancelled thread...
...might eventually reName this one
Imagining a Ford Sportback Concept:

Tell me if my sketch is looking like a sportback and not a regular sedan. How can I make it look more like a sportback?

For the head and taillights I'm trying to do sort of a 1-2-3 theme. That's why there are just lines. What can I improve on?
