    Chevrolet Vega.

    Thought I'd get things started off right.

    Chevrolet's own Alpha-based RWD/AWD subcompact-compact sedan. Vega LS/LT engine is a new 1.6L turbocharged, direct-injected I-4 good for 225hp. Vega SS engine is a revised 2.0L turbocharged, direct-injected I-4 good for 270hp. Chevrolet heritage styling throughout - small glass third window and quad taillamps on the outside, dual-cockpit on the inside (I'm currently working on the inside).

    I really like the proportioning on this one AJ. If you could, a front or rear 3/4 would be great to show more of the design.

    That is actually very nice. It's sleek and modern.

    Great looking car! The only thing I don't like is the name.

    I don't think GM will ever ever use the VEGA name ever again.. ! LOL

    thanks for the drawing. you might be right and it would be a cool rwd car to own with a 2.0 liter turbo 4 pumping out 300hp..

    I'd buy that !

    225hp as the base motor in a car that small? Dang man. Buncha kids would buy this up and crash them! How expensive do you suppose would be?

    Probably $19K for the LS, $22K for the LT, and $26K for the SS, with a fully-loaded SS topping out at about $29K with every factory option.
    The Vega would be really customizable, with 16 exterior colors, 10 interior colors, and various appearance and performance packages, including a track pack.
    People are willing to pay a premium for a performance car - just look at the Subaru Impreza WRXSTI, Mazdaspeed3, and the Volkswagen GTI. RWD would just make it even better.

    Interior comes first. Then, if I'm bored, I'll try to make a front 3/4.

    Impala money for a Vega. Some good ideas there otherwise though. Too modern for GM I'm afraid.

    Re: Chevrolet Vega.

    I was very bored today (babysitting a CAD software download), so I whipped this color chart together. Like I said, sixteen exterior colors and ten interior color schemes. Every color is available for every model.

    Looks really good. The proportioning is nice, and I really like the pseudo-hatch/fastback look.

    I think one of my favorite designs from you so far.

    Good point. Is there any chance that this Vega is actually a hatchback (like the Mazda 6 Hatchback?)

    Cool concept. A sporty RWD compact sedan for the masses. I love it.

    Like some other people have already suggested, I think it would be cool if this came in a 5-door configuration instead of a notchback. Your sketch sort of reminded me of the awesome Torana TT36 Concept (although I think your sketch is superior to what I already viewed as an awesome concept car). Killer looks combined with the added utility of a hatchback would be a great combo.
