Lincoln needs to capture the hearts and minds of the affluent once again. They need to compete with the Germans and the Japanese. Without a car like the one detailed after the jump, I don’t know if they will be able to survive.

Things just got a bit less fun for the new 2015 Ford Mustang. The EPA just stepped in and told Ford to knock a few MPGs off its stickers on every single version.

Here’s a cool thought: a RWD Lincoln based on the new Mustang platform.

When one feels the need, the need for speed, only F-14 Tomcats and Mustangs will do. At least that’s what the good folks at Ford figured when they had the good sense to partner with DreamWorks on last spring’s “Need for Speed”.

By the time I’ve figured out how to pull off saying “Mustang” with an Australian accent, I’m betting there’ll be a few more Aussies lining up to buy the new Ford pony car.
