2018 Lincoln Continental Coupe Rendering
The Lincoln Coupe you’ve been waiting for
Updated September 19, 2018
Lincoln had become a company that only Mary Todd could love. Their prior design phase left a lot to be desired and became obvious by the overall lacking sales figures. Ford Motor Company wants to raise the company out of the balcony seating and onto the mainstage without John Wilkes Booth intervening (aww too soon). And that is why we see the 2018 Lincoln Continental Coupe and Sedan making an appearance.
Fortunately Lincoln has scrapped their idea of a contemporary bird grille that kinda looked like a bad pencil musctache and gotten back to a more traditional take on design. For some reason the heads of companies like Lincoln and Buick get the notion that a young cool crowd is just waiting to be tapped into, so they try and fail. It happens about once a decade and then they go back to the formula that works, old people. Yes, our baby boomers are still kickin and tickin and they still love their luxury cars. With their leaching kids finally self-sufficient means that they have an expendable income to put towards a golf & church sled.
The new 2018 Lincoln Continental concept shown earlier this year got a lot of attention because it showed a more sensible side to Lincoln, and although the Continental looks like a Maserati Quattroporte and a Chrysler 300C made an Italian-American love baby, it still looks far better than anything coming from Lincoln in the past few years. With the possibility of a 400hp/400ft-lb Turbo V6 under the hood makes for a great road trip cruiser as likely owners will perform their annual migration to Boca Raton.
Since the intended market for the 2018 Lincoln Continental Coupe only has yappy small breed dogs to haul around makes perfect sense for the coupe model, as you don’t have to worry about William Sheakespaw or Viginia Woof falling out of the window.
I myself think that the 2018 Lincoln Coupe looks great and offers up a Lincoln that could help the Brand regain a footing in sales.
