    Re: Monte!

    Cool! A Monte concept that actual LOOKS like a Monte. This is how the next Monte Carlo should look. If the Vette can go up against things like the Viper, 911, and F430 (more expensive counterparts to the Vette), why couldn't the Monte go up against the 612 Scaglietti, Bentley GT, and Maserati Cambriocorsa (more expensive counterparts [personal luxury/GT coupes] to the Monte Carlo.)? LS7 please, thank you.

    Great drawing as always TorRed. I'm just not as much of a fan of this one as I am your other work. To me, it doesn't quite suit as a Monte. The rear is Monte-like, but I'm just not feeling the front half of the car's design. Still a great drawing though.

    I agree.

    BUT...I really like that drawing/concept . Excellent work, as always!

    Re: Monte!

    i think we get a little too hung up on names around here, and what a (named car) is supposed to look like.

    is the C6 what a vette is supposed to look like, based on what you can see from teh C1, 2, or even 3?

    this car carries on enough monte design cues, and looks very much like it can carry the mantle of chevrolet personal luxury coupe. is it what a monte is supposed to look like? i dunno - i think it looks more like a monte should than the current model, and perhaps moreso than any of the previous versions either.

    nice work torred. now if only i could sign you on to be my personal GMI design contest consultant...

    Looks great! Something about the taillights doesn't say 'Monte' to me -- more DCX (too square, maybe?). Other than that, this is fantastic!

    Your lunch time casual thoughts are better than Chevrolet's years of design. Monte Carlo is one of the ugliest cars out there. A design like your would put it on top (...or near)
