THANKS a Lot, guys!
here's the original for those interested
(usually I try for more realistic proportions - just didn't think about that this time)
forgot to add a very old tail light design from Dec'07
not quite like the current chop

I'm coming from the idea that the Mustang platform has been "silo'ed"
ie no other sizes will be built off it ... imho just a Lincoln sportsedan & coupe(/cabrio), near 3-series size
have tried to develop a plan where the Falcon+Territory leads to a GlobalRwdPlatform for a Continental+Navigator+Aviator;
with engine compartment architecture shared with the Mustang^&^friends
recently had the thought of using the Mustang-inspired front mechanics with the Awd-capable Mondeo/Fusion derived "CD4+3", aka nextgen Taurus (due Q3 2015)
things sorta fell-into-place = very OneFord-ish imho
the heritage nameplates preserved...3 of these 4 actually being versions of the SAME basic car:
Falcon,Thunderbird,Taurus = same car, different drivetrains & trimlevels
Continental = a skosh larger + more "princely" + unique drivetrain(s)
not sure how/when the Territory,Aviator,Explorer*,Edpedition**,Navigator can fit in with this
* both Interceptors are supposed to run thru Q1 2017
** the aluminum F-150 is 'due' Q3 2014
