  • NAIAS 2016: The Ford 2017 Lincoln Continental illustrated as a two-door coupe!

Artists on the internet render a conceptualized design of the vintage car as a captivating coupe.

At the 2016 NAIAS Ford shed some light on the new 2017 Lincoln Continental. Although the car concept was pleasant, it lacked any edge. The internet meanwhile came up with a better version of the 1939 Lincoln Continental.

Artists have depicted a two-door coupe version of the 2017 Lincoln Continental shown in Detroit. The two-door coupe has been designed by a digital artist Theophilus Chin. The illustration is a brilliant job at imagining a coup for the legions of Lincoln Continental enthusiasts. 

According to Ford, the production version shown at NAIAS 2016 took guts to build. However the artist rendering seems like a captivating notion. The original Continental back in 1939 was a two-door so the new concept drives home the point.

Over time the Lincoln Continental line-up was infiltrated by four doors. So it may be time to go back to the roots of the original. The new production Continental is based on a front-drive platform.

It features a so-far unique 400-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 and an advanced torque-vectoring AWD system. Neat touches include fancy door handles and patented 30-way adjustable seats, but the car lacks enthusiasm. 

A new two-door concept would bring the stylistic theme. With two doors, the longer door makes for a more elegant transition into the C-pillar. Although there is little to no chance of Ford ever building a two-door Lincoln Continental, the renderings are too good not to be seen. 

The North American International Auto Show is in its 28th year. The NAIAS is among the most prestigious auto shows in the world. The NAIAS (North American International Auto Show) is hosted at the MGM Grand Detroit.

The NAIAS constitutes the release of more than 50 new cars. NAIAS will last from the 16th to the 24th of January, 2016.
