    You're absolutely correct about it being a Cascada + 2 doors + roof. I also altered the rear slightly by giving the tail-lamp a slimmer shape, altering the shutline of the boot and, as sfbreh points out, adding the little 'Olympia' badge.

    Here's the image I started out with,

    I think a few inches of wheelbase would lend a lot to it.

    Also, I really, really like the name Olympia. They also really need to bring back Apollo.

    How'd you manage the shutline on the rear door?

    I'd try doing renders, but they're a little daunting and I'm a perfectionist. If I don't think my work is perfect, I most often just throw it out.

    It's a better looking Verano that's for sure.

    It's too bad sometimes that the corps. own designers can't do this good.
