A low-quality image of Lincoln’s upcoming Continental Coach Door has found its way online, giving us a first look at the company’s return to the suicide-door setup.
The blurry photo appeared on social media, showing the new variant of the Lincoln Continental on a stage, with the display behind it saying “Lincoln Coach Door Continental”. If we had to guess, we’d say that the image comes from a dealer convention in Las Vegas, where Lincoln reportedly revealed the car to dealers.
Only yesterday the company released a close-up of the center-opening doors of the ‘60s Continental on its social media channels, teasing the return of the stylish door setup.
The new Coach Door version of the Continental could feature a longer wheelbase and an even more upmarket character than the model it’s based on. As expected with almost any modern interpretation of the specific door setup, the central pillar of the Continental’s body remains in its position for safety reasons.
Given the recent teaser (and this leak), expect Lincoln to make an official announcement in the coming weeks, if not days.
