    One of my favorite cars growing up was a late 80's Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. It shared platforms with the Grand Prix, which I also was really into. If only Olds were still alive.

    hmmm... i think if the headlights were les rectangular and maybe flared up a bit at the outside you'd have a more modern cutlass supreme. i liked the car too... the convertible with the bucket handle looked really good!

    The Cutlass was one of my favorites too. Especially my father's 1972 with it's 350 Rocket. When I was born I was driven home from the hospital in it (I was a GM/Olds fan from day one). I like what you have done and it just saddens me to see Olds go away. Good job.
    Maybe Pontiac can build a GP 2-door again.

    The sharp corners on the grille and headlights of the Cutlass were my favorite part about the car. Rounding them out would take a lot of what made it a Cutlass Supreme IMO. It also had a pretty nice rear, which is actually somewhat similar to the 04 Grand Prix tail lights.

    you're right, you put a very traditional cutlass supreme-like nose on the car, and it looks good. i just picture more wedge-shaped (not rounded) lights. but it's a good concept man!

    I see where you're going, but I think that you should rebadge an Opel or Caddy or something, because the Alero thing isn't working. Otherwise, it is 'okay'. I'm not a big fan of Supremes, and their crazy headlight styling, but I see where you're going.

    i tried changing the headlights, but it just ended up looking like a grand prix or bonneville. guess you had it right all along&#33; good job&#33;

    Can&#39;t expect you to like it if you don&#39;t like Supremes. Most people I know couldn&#39;t care less, but I will always turn my head for an 88-90 Cutlass Supreme. What Alero thing? I hate that car. I wouldn&#39;t want it to be based on another platform - in my heart GP and CS will always be linked. Maybe a GTO because that replaced the GP coupe(after 6 years).

    It&#39;s an interesting design, but isn&#39;t the car you based it on (the Alero) the replacement for the Cutlass Supreme? Well, nice try anyways&#33;

    How about using the Cutlass Supreme name on the Saturn and have that body be shared with the next gen. rear wheel drive Monte Carlo. B) I have always loved the Cutlass until 1988 and think GM should bring it back, even though Oldsmoblie isn&#39;t around anymore. Just my .02

    Nah, I based it on a late 80&#39;s - early 90&#39;s Cutlass Supreme. I have no concern of any cars between then and now. I guess that qualifies this treatment as "retro."

    Okay, I see where you guys are getting the Alero thing. There&#39;s nothing Alero here, it&#39;s a Grand Prix, taken straight from Pontiac.com.
