Lincoln officials probably aren't too happy at the moment.
Singer-songwriter Neil Young may have just accidently said something Lincoln wasn’t prepared to announce just yet. During an interview on CNBC’s "Mad Money" where Young was discussing his music company, Pono, he made reference to the 2016 Lincoln Continental. Specifically, he said that Pono was working with stereo company Harman to have its equipment released in the so far unconfirmed car. Lincoln has yet to say a word about any of this.
If this turns out to be true, then a reborn Continental could very well end up being the replacement for the disappointing MKS. Back in 2002, Lincoln showed off a Continental concept that never came to fruition. It had some awesome suicide doors and pretty retro styling. The Ford Taurus-based MKS resulted instead. If you're wondering what Pono is, it’s basically a new type of audio system that includes an online store and music player, and will go on sale early next year. "Pono brings the feeling of the music right to you. It gives you goosebumps. Because that's what missing. You can feel the music," explained Young.
