Not a slant towards you so please don't take this personal but every time I hear "the next FOMOCO / GM / Chrysler platform will be world class in terms of..." I just smirk and think "Here we go again, when have I heard that before".
Not saying that it couldn't happen, I just don't see it because Lincoln has pretty much become Ford's "badge engineering" division, a la GMC and RIP Pontiac/Saturn/older Buicks. But if they prove me wrong I'd gladly take my hat off to them / Ford - it may actually get me (and others) to start looking at them again. Even if they don't do a coupe, just a nice, proper RWD platform along with real sheetmetal differentiation from a Ford product would help them tremendously, and possibly help Ford division to have another RWD car besides Mustang.
Again, an interesting and good discussion.
