pure guess/speculation:

I would love to see a Conti coupe concept at PBC!

Taurus US spec for LA

Wings said Conti for NAIAS

MKZ for Chicago?

What about the Aviator......the MKT should be redesign PRONTO!

I am looking forward to LAIAS and I am hoping to see the production Lincoln Continental. If not, I will settle for a close-up look at the concept.

^ hope they show the ContiCon every chance they have until the production car debuts
(...actually, I'd *LOVE* to see them side-by-side

but THAT will never happen....
)

My goodness ... I'd prefer to enjoy the summer 1st. ;) lol

Car & Driver speculates that the Continental will be shown at Pebble Beach, which makes sense. We're already seeing Continentals running around in production form, and that doesn't usually happen so quickly with Lincolns on the usual 1-year concept to production cycle. Pebble Beach is also an event catering to luxury vehicles and wealthy attendees, a group of people that Lincoln so desperately wants.

So yeah, Continental at Pebble Beach, MKZ in LA.

^ Link?

I'm certain there will be a Continental at PBC
but
not sure it won't again be the Concept (since from Jesster's fotos it does have a drivetrain)
and
considering production dates, I'm guessing

Concept: PBC'15 & LA
production Conti: NAIAS'16
MKZ: NYC'16 ...a (new) trend
imho the aluminNavi needs to debut next year TOO...but where? Could Chicago be good for that??

^ TY :thumb:

& hmm...
if *I* wanted to make a splash in Tesla-Country or Tesla-ADJ(acent),
might try bringing 2 (TWO) with the second being a More powerful BEV
C&D said:
...Lincoln could sell the 2.7-liter as the base engine, however, and add something above, while at the same time giving global markets such as China a turbocharged four-cylinder at the bottom end...
re: my comments @ GMI^^^^^^

my MKS/MARK in Mission:Lincoln

I don't see dropping down to a .3L smaller engine (which would still need AWD for an EB version)
could possibly reduce the price to the $49k slot that imho is EMPTY without a more direct MKS-replacement

OR

anyone (besides me) remember the speculated long-Wlb-Z-4-China (cuz EVERYbody else has one over there)
WHAT IF the Z with new front is a long version? and the regular Z keeps its current grille??
Hey BORG.......

Lots of really nice cars at Pebble Beach. May not be the best place to introduce the Conti. What if it gets ignored by the cognizenti?

maybe we'll get a Hint (or more) about a trim/program above [BlackLabel]?
what I've been calling [WhiteLabel]
imho
the ContiConcept's interior is above anything we've seen of [BlackLabel] so far

...I am planning to be at the LAIAS this November and I still have hope that production Continental will be revealed there. Both the production 2009 and 2013 MKS were revealed at Los Angeles. At the very least, the concept should be there and maybe news about other Lincoln products.
I am expecting the production Continental at Pebble Beach this August. It won't have to share the limelight with anyone. Considering how complete the mules are, I believe they are moving the project along quicker than usual. With that said, I expect a refreshed MKZ at LAIAS and an Aviator or Navigator concept at NAIAS. Just my $0.02.
imho FlincMoCo has 2 issues
- get their money out of the ContiConc & more importantly
- not show the production version TOO far before its Job1
so
I still expect the Concept at PBC
BUT
it'd be interesting (sorta-since it's ONLY a concept) to show something else with it

I expect to see the concept at PBC as well, at most maybe in a different color. I think LAIAS is where we will see the production version alongside the refreshed MKZ and an Aviator concept. I know that seems like a lot, but Lincoln needs a big show to get people talking and three big time products will do that. Follow that up at NAIAS with the production Aviator and new Navi at Chicago.

^ I *like* the different color idea, badhac :thumb: but have NO idea what to suggest

(+ I'd love to see RhapsodyBlue with my own eyes** - gonna hafta think long & hard about going "over the hill" for PBC - anyone know if one can SEE anything without selling a kidney to pay admission??)


** of course IF they had 2 vehicles, they could use Rhapsody on the SECOND one

edit: I'd also like to see LIQUID-BLUE!! - does the Ford Brand do PBC? is in the GT!

^ personally I'd like to see either a Chroma Couture, Java, or REALLY REALLY want to see one in Magnetic with more like a platinum colored trim vs chrome. Honeslt I think any color they do will be awesome!

^ agree *IF* any kind of Conti is at PBC, I'd like to see another treatment for the chrome OUT&IN
tho
that might cause peoples' heads to explode before FLincMoCo can even say they're just still trying things out
:nevreness:

for the record, I *do* want the chrome Optional IN&OUT



my obligatory-edit:
wonder if they could have the ContiConc in running/driveable condition??

^ I really hope to see a running one soon or at the minimum find out more about the drivetrain other than it comes with a 3.0 Ecoboost.

State Fair of Texas for the updated MY2017 Expedition, but I don't believe it'll happen. Should go on sale mid-2016 as a MY2017 vehicle, and unless I missed something, there hasn't been a single sighting of the hopefully-redesigned Expy yet. If the SFoT is in September, then wouldn't Sep 2016 feel a little late to introduce a 2017 vehicle? And wouldn't Sep 2015 seem unrealistic?
