    MKS-Replacement to be Called Continental? Supplier Confirms

    What some might not know about Neil Young is that he doesn't just make music, he also tries to change the way that people listen to music with his company, Pono.

    Pono is also working with Harman to have their equipment released within the 2016 model Lincoln Continental, and stated that Tesla will also be implementing the sound system into their models when Pono's music store is ready.

    Neil Young confirms the new model's name and model year introduction around the 3:45 mark.

    Lincoln's problem was not the names of its vehicles, it was every thing else
    that has been discussed ad nausea. bring back names with panache and style.
    Lincoln is not like Cadillac (Sporty Luxury), it is big soft sumptuous vehicles.

    Has it been verified that the Continental name is coming back, or was that just Neil assuming, or simply making a mistake and using an old Lincoln name he knows?

    The rumor has been floating around for a long time. There were reports of Lincoln using "heritage names" for China, but hopefully the positive outpouring from this report will make Lincoln consider using the name here as well.

    You're right, but the names certainly can't hurt. Alphanumeric names are loathed by the automotive press and enthusiasts alike.

    That article is over a year old.

    Is the use of "Continental" still a rumor, or is it "CONFIRMED" as you state in your thread title?

    It was confirmed by a supplier represented by Neil Young.

    Oh no. That would make too much sense. Lincoln better have a consult with the pinheaded millennial Cadillac just hired to "advise" them.
    Pony Car: an affordable, compact, highly styled car with a sporty or performance-oriented image and an available V8.

    Has it been confirmed by Ford?

    No, but companies rarely confirm product plans this long before a release.

    So it's not REALLY confirmed, then?

    Curious. When is the car, no matter what it might be called, supposed to break cover?

    The thread title needs to be changed, then. The "Continental" name is NOT confirmed.

    The supplier did confirm, so no, it does not need changed.

    Since when do suppliers have the last word in these things?

    The car may well be called Continental, but until Ford says so, it's not a confirmation.
