Should keep the same GT body and just kill all the damn electrical gremlin they had.

It'd be sweet if they did the Ford GT again maybe this time as an Ecoboost coyote 5.0.

Don't vote Democrat.
It'll go as a Lincoln and I'll tell you why:

Ford badly wants to put one up Cadillac's ass for their 'sports' line-up. This would do that in spades, and likely wouldn't be challenged by Government Motors for the foreseeable future.

In some aspects I would agree, but when comparing Lincoln to Cadilac, Cadilac wins. Lincoln right now is closer to Buick than it is Cadilac. Lincoln needs a rear wheel drive platform.

I see where you guys are going with this, when I think of cadillac I think of spinning rims and big stereos, and cruising. (I don't like any of the V series so I just erase it out of my mind) When I think of Lincoln I think of old people and the mall. Lincoln really needs this, Ford has a 800hp Super Snake give the GT to lincoln.:icon_thumby:

Both brands make the think one of two things about the owner:

1. Young people with too much money and wanting to show off.
2. Old people with too much money that want a caddie or lincoln for the reasons old people with money always have.

I have no apspirations to own either brand.

I don't like it... I think they should have just kept the older body style and gotten rid of the bugs...

I would drive a lincoln but not a caddy, lincolns are basically just spruced up fords and with fords new cars already pretty top notch I would think it could only be improved.

Ford tried selling a high performance car through Lincoln dealerships (Pantera) and the result wasn't good. If Ford can present Lincoln as a performance/luxury brand, then maybe, but otherwise I see this not working out and I vote to just keep it a Ford.
