    I like it. It looks upscale but still has a 30s gangster look to your design.

    Thanks. The wheels really aren't huge though. The car is a lot more low-slung and has much less mass than the current. I've also done away with the enormous wheelgap that the current one has.

    Too many cars these days are fat and bloated and have too much sheetmetal above the wheelwells, vehicle manufacturers need to have a look at the 80s and 90s European models to have an idea of proper proportioning. Long and low, not a freaking pseudo-crossover.

    Excellent job.

    The rear window panel looks similar to current Malibu to me. With that and a Chevy grille it would be a killer Caprice IMO.

    There's something Camaro-ish about it, especially in the front? I agree with Hitman1970, it would make a good Chevy... It's a good 300 too, though, it has a similar "vibe" while also looking new.

    Appreciate the effort, but this has been done! The outgoing 300 and Dodge Magnum Wagon, are too heavy not aerodynamic enough, not 21st Century! What is needed is a 4 door Coupe design, as the drivetrain may be replaced at anytime, but the body is too costly until after 2015!

    Re: Chase's Chrysler 300

    Thanks everybody! I agree that the 300 should wind up being a sleek, CLS type vehicle, however, I feel like the vehicle needs to transition into it.

    This is a freshened design and along the lines of what I think the next 300 might look like.

    The details in it are spot-on, but I think the wheels need shrinking. It's like they are eating the rest of the bodywork!

    I like it. It's a great looking evolution of the current model. Good job!

    For me, it is much too similar to the current, boxy, blocky design theme.

    I love it. However, I'm just worried the boxy design might hinder gas mileage.
    I may be on the side of angels, but do not mistake me for one.

    I really like it, the only alteration i would make is maybe an art deco inspired, streamlined grille.
