    I was thinking that the middle window would slide backwards.
    Or the rear window would open vent style (like the last window in a minivan).

    hm- I guess something like that could work-- but I'm all for a couple with a power roll-down rear window... even if it only goes down half-way.

    It was my idea, my idea, mine. MINE!!!

    In all seriousness, it looks awesome. I think that doing the same car, with quad-coupe doors might pimp even harder.

    I was the one who said to use the Maxx hatch with a 2 door. (Remeber the son of Monte Carlo Malibu thread?) :P https://www.gminsidenews.com/forum/index.ph...?showtopic=3033

    I like it!

    I think the hood scoop is over the top, though. :lol: Very Subaru. All you need is a bright yellow Bowtie outline sticker diagonally pasted on the whole side of the vehicle.

    Excellent chops, Rex, more proof that GM needs to hire you!

    YOU'VE GONE SCOOP/WING CRAZY!! I like the idea of a 2dr Maxx, but how about a 4 door like the Ion and RX8? That would allow way better access to the back. And its an RS, so what kind of power are we talking here?

    This whole scoop/wing thing started in the Malibu Coupe thread, when I asked Rex to do a MAXX coupe. Since the Epsilon platform is AWD capable, and because the ensuing MAXX coupe would have a rallyish look to it, I requested Rex to "WRX-ify" it 15%.

    I think it looks good, but more pictures are also good. I've been looking at pictures since before I could read.

    I'm away from photoshop. I should return to my real computer by tomorrow night, and I will make some toehr varieties (different colors, different scoops/wings), etc...

    And Ming, sorry, but it WAS Ghrank's idea.
