    I wish Saturn would do a coupe of this car. It would be the perfect opportunity to go real aggressive especially on the Redline version and start getting some people over the age of 30 excited about their cars.

    but then it would overlap the G6 gxp coupe.

    i dont really like the blackout grille, maybe some mesh instead?

    Shibby! But I would have personally placed the side vent on the rear panel, behind the door. Thanks for taking my suggestions in the WIPS. Awesome job!

    Three things I'd say should be changed...

    1. Coupe roofline - needs to slope more..
    2. Wheelbase - shorter wheelbase, that's one of the big things I can't stand about the G6 coupe, it looks to long between the doors and the rear bumper...
    3. RL version shouldn't have that random induction vent in the door - a smaller one back by the rear wheel well would look much better a la Z06.

    Other than that, I like it! (Though a slightly different front bumper would help out in the styling department as well...)

    Your passenger side is still a 2 door.

    i thought aura was epsilon . i saw a bunch the other day and they looked bigger thatn ion/cobalt.
    ----------------------
    about the redline version:
    that intake on the side looks out of place, not to mention totally fake. the shadows in the mesh on the bumper shouldn't go all the way around, just in certain places like the top and left side (for this pic). and there should be a 'wall' betweed the start of the mesh on the left side (of each mesh patch) and a slight 'floor' to show depth (similar to the griles on entry 'J' from contest 110). take it or leave it, that's what needs to be done. aside from those minor things it looks pretty good .

    That's one of the things I hate about the G6 Coupe. I thought and still think that it looked weird on the LWB. Now, it's starting to grow on me.

    Ya, it definately isn't growing on me. If they fix that (and the Solara-like tail) I'd fall for it easily.

    but they're different enough looking that few people outside of the 'car crazies' like us would even know that little bit of information. i think that, despite the differing design themes, the aura looks extremely similar to the g6.
