An accidental teaser has come out from Lincoln that gives us some info on the upcoming Lincoln Continental. It is an unfinished site that mentions the 2017 Continental, which suggests that the car will be making it to production.
We don't get any photos of the car on the site, all we get is a description.
The one concrete detail we get from the site is about "e-latch door handles" and possibly chairs that actually massage you.
My guess is that the Continental will be a halo car for the brand.
