Lincoln Considering Mustang-Based Sportscar?
The world of Lincoln Motor Company is a strange one. While its cars are rightfully good looking and full of promise, the final products rarely appear to hit the necessary marks to be successful. But there’s still hope. Early reviews are suggesting that the MKC crossover is actually pretty good, and now there are rumors teasing the idea of a Mustang-based sports coupe/sedan, which we wouldn’t mind in the least.

“We know we need added nameplates,” said global head of marketing, Matt VanDyke in an interview with Edmunds. “We know that we need to get into other segments with other vehicles.” And when it came down to it, VanDyke admitted that the platform of the 2015 Mustang was an idea that they definitely “won’t rule out.”

Alongside a Mustang-based Lincoln would be the addition of a fully redesigned MKX, a new MKS sedan, and a new MKT SUV. It’s a full onslaught of new Lincolns. Perhaps there is some life in this old brand after all!
