    2007 CTS Pic

    Nice. The trunk needs to be longer though. What is that stuff by the front doors/fenders?

    The LS discontinued?

    Lincoln will make five new cars over the next several years. Those include the Mark LT, the Zephyr, and a car-based Aviator. That leaves two other Lincolns. The 05 Mustang uses a highly modified DEW98 chassis. Doesn't that help spread the costs since they will sell like hotcakes?

    Cadillac STS-V Pics...

    Road & Track has a new article about Cadillac's V series. http://roadandtrack.com It mentions an AWD 2007 BTS-V which would use the Epsilon chassis (if built) used by the Saab 9-3, Chevy Malibu, and Pontiac G6 that would only be sold in Europe. A car below the CTS is a BAD idea. Using...

    Awesome pic of Cadillac XLR-V in new Road & Track

    Well, the picture of the 2006 Cadillac XLR-V is what Road & Track thinks it will look like. It is STUNNING. It will use the supercharged Northstar V-8 from the 06 STS-V, the STS-V's new 6 speed automatic transmission, and Brembo brakes. http://roadandtrack.com

    Would you buy this future Lincoln?

    Won't the Zephyr cost around $27,000-$36,000? It seems odd to have that car and the LS and the Town Car.

    Would you buy this future Lincoln?

    This "Continental" would be their fleet car and I think it would make a great flagship.

    Would you buy this future Lincoln?

    (this is an imaginary Lincoln) media.ford.com says that Lincoln will make five new cars over the next few years. Three of those include the Mark LT, the Zephyr, and a car-based suv to replace the Aviator. That leaves two other Lincolns. I think Lincoln should drop the LS and the Town Car...

    Why doesn't Lincoln bring back the Continental?

    I read that the 2005 Ford Mustang has steel front control arms that weigh less than comparable cast aluminum ones. The 05 Mustang only shares its floor pan with the Lincoln LS. Any other thoughts?

    Why doesn't Lincoln bring back the Continental?

    I like the Continenal concept car. The LS's chassis would make a great start.

    Why doesn't Lincoln bring back the Continental?

    oh, and make a coupe and a convertible!

    Why doesn't Lincoln bring back the Continental?

    How about building it off of the Lincoln LS's chassis? Here's a plan... Get rid of the LS and the Town Car and make the Continental with two different wheelbases? And a powerful V-8. Doesn't the 05 Ford Mustang amortize costs from the Lincoln LS in a way since it uses a modified version...

    GM Performance Division's 575HP 2005/2006 Pontiac GTO

    Here is an incredible video of a Holden HSV sedan. HSV is Holden's performance line. The new Pontiac GTO is based on a Holden Monaro (a Holden coupe). http://www.hsv.com.au/cars/vy2/video/premiere.wmv

    Why not a Mercury coupe based on the 05 Mustang?

    I think that the Ford Motor Co. has the best designers in the industry. Ford owns Aston Martin and Henrik Fisker styles Aston Martins. He used to work for BMW where he styled the gorgeous Z8, but left in 2000 for Aston Martin. Ford owns Jaguar and Ian Callum styles Jaguars. He also styled the...

    Why not a Mercury coupe based on the 05 Mustang?

    Mercury could use some help these days. The Mercury Marauder is cool but hasn't sold well. Many people like the new Mustang but don't want people trying to race them (which is what can happen with a Mustang) so Mercury should make a more modern coupe (as far as interior/exterior styling)...
