    Ford Concept

    For my portfolio I'm working on a Ford Wagon Concept, I hope it will be perhaps the most beautiful and creative car I have ever designed, and I'm at the ideation stage. So here is a sample of the rear end, what do you guys think of it?


    suggestions appreciated!

    Very nice, I'd like a Ford like that! This looks much more like a hatchback to me though - I'd love it to be the next Focus 5-door's rump!

    It's kinda like a coupe wagon, it has the roofline of a coupe and the dimensions of a wagon, the combination works quit well actually.

    haha well I can't show much more of this particular car, but I did do a Ford Focus a little while back that is similar:


    Of course the wagon is much more dynamic.

    yeah the new Mazada 6 has one I think... I really like the idea. The best of both worlds.

    Great job Mr. Burns. let's see some more angles

    Sorry, I think I've liked everything you've done up to this point, but I'm having a really hard time envisioning anything decent looking from that angle. Give us a more detailed sketch or a different angle for my honest opinion (if you dare ).

    The Focus is fantastic looking by the way. I would hire you in a heartbeat.

    Nope, regular estate:



    To me, a "coupe-wagon" is either a shooting break:


    ...or simply a hatchback:

    Well mine is a combination of the BMW and the Mazda, it has 4 doors, but has a profile similar to the BMW, but more curvy.

    It's certainly not going to look like the protege.

    Re: Ford Concept

    So far this is looking pretty interesting. Does it have a split rear windscreen like the Opel Flextreme? I like the fact that it mixes sport with a sense of refinement, however I would suggest tailpipes that aren't so brash. Maybe an idea more along the lines of the Aero-X.

    Can I tell you that I would kill for something like that? I really wish that shooting brakes would make it into the mainstream. I want something with the dimensions of a Wagon, but with a lower, sportier roofline and only two doors.
