    Going by the lines of the G6 coupe, I came up with this. Yes, I know it kind of looks like the current Grand Am coupe, but that's supposed to be the Malibu's C-pillar adapted to the G6 coupe's roofline. Also, I added an airdam and SS logo.

    I like it. It looks sportier than the sedan but it needs more uniqueness to it meaning that it looks no different than a regular malibu coupe.
    Know what I'm saying?
    ex: the monte ls and the monte ss

    That works. Make a copy and see what happens if you go further with it. More detail, etc.
    Is it coincidence that Bob Lutz owns an Hidden Content

    Kool car. I wish Chevy would build a Malibu like that and forget the Malibu Max thing. Owell I guess I like any Malibu.

    hmmm.... :zap:

    aaaaaaanyway, it looks good, but the there is just too much overhang in the rear. Tuck that rear in a bit more, and it would look pretty good.

    Too much rear overhang? I traced over an actual Malibu. I might post a modified version later.

    A few changes: chopped top, taller wheel openings for lowering, revised fascias (the horizontal bar is molded into the front fascia to give the front a cleaner look...even though you can't see it in this view.), slightly larger spoiler, and (my favorite) the wheelbase has been extended ahead of the firewall for better weight transfer in a RWD version with longitudinal engine placement.

    The new one is excellent. I don't see any reason why the malibu can't be sporty.
    This is what the malibu should have been.

    Looks very nice, but it does have a GTOish shape about it
    So what what you are telling me is that your Honda has 1.6 Liters, compared to my Mountian Dew which has 2 Liters.
