    Chevrolet Chevelle (Updated)

    UPDATE: Name changed to Chevelle. This is a rear-wheel muscle sedan. Chevelle just screams raw american muscle car, and it was offered in a 4-door at the time. So thats the name.

    Here's the final sketch. Hopefully I'll be able to do a slightly cleaner/better proportioned drawing before the contest deadline, but if not, this is the one I'll use.





    Here's an updated sketch, smaller scale. Proportions aren't perfect but are better, still a rough sketch, just different design. New grill, bigger green house, stretched wheel base a little, lowered ride height a tad. Comments welcome.



    ORIGINAL POST:
    Just a quick sketch teaser.
    The proportions are off yes I know, I worked on a much larger scale then Im used to when it comes to sketching, but like i said its preliminary and will be refined.

    Comments/suggestions welcome as always.



    Edit, alot of lighter lines didnt show up, so pretend there is contour and shape

    Use the XTS as your base and work from there. We all know that the new Impy is going FWD and is on the Epsilon platform and oddly enough the XTS is to. So my suggestion would be to start there.

    So far so good. I'm assuming this is on Zeta(?), which would be great. It has somewhat of a 4-door Camaro vibe to it, which is absolutely appropriate in addition to being simply irresistible.

    A great start to what looks to be an awesome car.

    I personally don't like the grille, and I think that the car has too much ground clearance.

    Other than that, looking pretty good.

    It's funny you mention the ground clearance as usually my sketchs have the lower body line almost flush with the tire sittin on the ground lol, but the grill is nowhere near complete, just a rough outline/starting point of what it'll be
