Future Lincoln Town Car?

I created this fully contemporary Lincoln Town Car replacement more than three years ago. There is still no real replacement from Lincoln for this once-popular long wheelbase sedan, and I can honestly say that my rendering would still look good in a Lincoln showroom today.

Should Lincoln be preparing an ├╝ber sedan, perhaps with an extended rear wheel drive platform?

  1. Oh yes, they shouold definitely be preparing this very car for production. I know the Lincoln version of the Escape (MK something or other) was well-received at Detroit, but this is the car that can make or break Lincoln. Ford has to give Lincoln its chance and their current lineup won't be enough.

    The overall simplicity of your design is so evocative of the real Lincolns of the past -- I especially like the taillights on this one! They remind one of the 61 as well as the Mark II. Good work as always!

  2. I think it is very difficult to make the newer aero sedans look 'classy'. They can look sleek, modern and even expensive. This sedan has class. It also looks contemporary and even a bit athletic with the big wheel openings. Very nice! Is that a vinyl top?

  3. Nothing like angular flat roof sedans, a forbearer to the MKZ.

  5. It looks really nice, although I think it could look slightly better if the roof flowed a bit more smoothly from the hood and into the trunk, without affecting headroom of course.
