Last March, Automotive News reported that Lincoln told its dealers, during a conference at the NADA Show, that a future version of the Continental would come with suicide doors.
A picture, published today, on Lincoln’s Instagram account might confirm that. The publication shows a closeup of suicide doors on a 1960s Lincoln Continental.
The caption says: “Making a statement without a word. Center-opening doors elevated the Lincoln #Continental of the mid-1960’s to the pinnacle of mid-century style, a car driven by the likes of Pablo Picasso. #TBT… or is it? Stay tuned. “
Remember that the Continental made its comeback during the New York Auto Show in 2015, where Lincoln introduced it as a concept. A year later, in the fall of 2016, it appeared in the showrooms to replace the Lincoln MKS.
Will Lincoln unveil this new Continental in January at the Detroit Auto Show? We will keep our eyes on Lincoln’s Instagram account for you, and we will keep you informed of any further developments.
