It's not just about names, it's about making a clear and bold design statement. The CT6 is just a cautious evolution of the CTS. A better name would help a little but not overcome the car's...

So impressed that Lincoln has listened to the community and is making the car the car they need to make. FWD or RWD, this is what a Lincoln should look like. This is so much better than De Nysschen's...

Just left the NYC auto show and pleased to report that the ELR is alive and well. They had a 2016 model on the floor. It had minor styling updates. Interior and power train are unchanged. Pic to come.
