Call it the Lincoln Mark IX, make it look a bit meaner, and it's win.

While it is more expedient to pull a Lincoln Mark IX off the Continental/Taurus platform, I am of the opinion that a Lincstang is the better route. The RWD architecture would give Lincoln something that could legitimately go head to head with a 6 Series coupe. It's too bad that rumors are that they will not do a Lincstang.

Stang chassis isn't up for that kind of stretch and widening. Last Continental was on a Taurus Chassis. Ford does need to find more uses for a chassis that works for NA only products.

Yes it is. The 15 Mustang chassis is an evolution of the DEW Lite which was a shrunken version of the DEW98 (Lincoln LS/Jaguar S/Tbird).

Though Ford wants you to believe it was an all-new chassis, the 05 Mustang was supposed to debut as an 04 with IRS, but a last minute decision dictated the live axle and a one-year production delay. The main change to the DEW Lite was a new front suspension and a mild reworking of the firewall to accommodate styling.
