    Chevy's Solstice

    just a basic sketch of Chevy's Kappa platformed 2-seater. I'm pretty satisfied with the profile but im still working on the other view so im open for any suggestions (yes i kno the grill resembles one of TorReds previous design's) hopefully ill have time to finish this drawing and post it in the near future

    I'm getting a serious Aston Martin vibe from your drawing. Nicely done though

    Not too bad of a drawing. I'll agree with bakerna about it looking like a Chevy Aston Marton. Other than that, it looks very nice.

    I honestly don't know how a Chevy Kappa (other than the Nomad) would fit into Chevy's lineup. It would be stepping on the toes of either the Chevy Cobalt SS or the Pontiac Solstice. But it'd be nice to see a sporty mini Corvette in the line-up.

    yea like a corvette for us not-so-rich people haha but it does kinda take away from the cobalt. i probably wouldnt build it, maybe one for myself but thats about it. Maybe ill change some stuff and turn it into a smaller XLR...somethin else to fight off the brits.

    I get a Ford GR-1 vibe - and that's not only good, but that's almost an Aston Martin vibe as well. Nice lookin' thang.

    I think the next Kappa 2-passenger (coupe) should be an Opel, though; a true sucessor the GT moniker. I really love the Kappa Nomad. But this wouldn't be half bad in production - regardless of branding.
