Lincoln has a history of using Mustang platforms for their own projects. The Fox Body platform was used for the Lincoln Continental from 1982 to 1987. It also came in a coupe, the Mark VII from 1984 to 1992 and now there is a rumor of a follow-up vehicle.
If the new MKZ succeeds then Lincoln will have money to proceed on a RWD coupe project. With Ford investing so much money into a new, global, Mustang platform it only makes sense to get a second vehicle out of it.
To keep the vehicles separate, the Lincoln is expected to use a slightly wheelbase version of the platform. Predictions are for an EcoBoost 2.9 V6 to be the most popular engine., Mustang-Based Lincoln Coupe in Development, http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/allfordmustangsnews/~3/wgGdekm8NPo/mustang-based-lincoln-coupe-in-development-1440.shtml, http://feeds.feedburner.com/allfordmustangsnews, All Ford Mustang News, http://www.allfordmustangs.com/images/rss/afm.gif
