So, here I am, minding my own business and browsing all my favorite cars sites at lunch, and I see some new photos of a Ford Taurus prototype. "Cool," I think to myself, having always had a soft spot for these cars. My first car was a '95 Taurus, and I've always had an SHO until just a few months ago. But, what do these photos have to do with that Continental Concept we've all seen?
It's pretty well known that the next Taurus will be based on the current Fusion, so one should expect some similarities. But something else looked very familiar to me. There was something I had seen before, and it wasn't on my wife's '13 Fusion in the driveway.
Then I figured it out. The proportions. The overhangs. See the below photos.
From what I've read, nobody has confirmed yet if the Continental would ride on a new, bespoke platform, or on a modified platform from the FoMoCo stables. Well, ladies and gentlemen, I think we have a good idea now.
