    Buick Raptor

    I was getting some flack for not being "edgy" enough. Is this "edgy" enough?

    there is no denying your skill but this car just looks weird, like the front looks like a different car then the back

    also don't like the buick logo integration into the hood..

    nice rims and I like the back alot though

    maybe another revision?

    Great artistry and creativity on all your works. However, I'd really like to see some "down to earth" stuff ... the type of car that could go on sale right now and be a runaway success. The type of stuff GM needs to be building right now in order to turn its fortunes around. We all talk about it, how 'bout we show them how to do it? Your entries are alot like concept cars ... and if novel features are plucked from them, gotta-have and production worthy vehicles can be derived. Many of the contests on this site are pie-in-the-sky. Like the 2050 GTO. So what? If GM can't get the 2008 GTO right, there won't be a 2050 GTO.

    Reminds me of the LaCrosse concept, or someother concept. The sedan that converts to a truck. Looked nice, so does this one.

    My lord your are absolutely right!! We need some real world cars and then we can print them and ship 'em to GM and say "Build this, we'll BUY it!!!". Who cares if they supposedly don't take outside designs, I bet some of their designers come on this very forum at home and 'Get Ideas'..!!!!!

    I love the side sculpting - organic/mechanical blend - & the the rims (racing-18-wheeler?). Something I've noticed in many sketches lately, as well as concepts, is alternative treatments of the side mirrors - hope real cars do something to reduce the growing A-pillar blindspots. A question - could the lower fascia 'fangs' be used for the fogs? At night, seeing just that and the headlites...
