Im sure youve heard from alot of people about what to market, some reality based and some not, but after long thought into how to bring the beloved Lincoln brand 'back' to its 60's iconic status, its seems a new full-size RWD sedan is in order. For real punch, a 5.8 DOHC V8 in NATURALLY ASPIRATED form could be harvested from the '13 SVT for a real world 485 horsepower/lb-ft torque and 25+ MPG with your developing 8-speed auto. If you wanted to take it to legend status (harking to the original Lincoln Zephr), you could develop a 4.6 block based DOHC V12, at 6.9L and at least 600 horsepower. Ecoboost 3.5 V6 for the base option (truck tune for more torque), with the 8-speed, could be class leading 28+ MPG highway. Possibly a manual option, for a few real enthusiasts. Modern yet retro-inspired like the new MKZ (think 1969 Continental body, with aero Thunderbird type front end, something to that affect). Of course new Lincoln ride control, AWD option, plush interior, glass roof option, tons of tech, full size cabin, low wieght materials, SUICIDE REAR DOORS. Invest in Lincoln today or else it will die a death of a thousand cuts!
