    my take on a possible 2012 Chevy Malibu [updated with a front headlights! :)]

    Here is my take on what the 2012 Chevy Malibu MIGHT look like



    I'm also working on a front 3/4 shot as well with Volt styling cues

    finished 3/4 front below



    little larger front clip

    with crisper, larger headlights with more chrome and turn markers and brightened chrome work on the grille

    The rear is a little flat, but I like where you are going with the tail lights and the stainless panel.

    Re: my take on a possible 2012 Chevy Malibu

    The upper part looks great (can you say SS concept?), but the bumper needs some work!

    For some reason, when I see the front, it makes me want to see the grille+lights combo grafted onto a Colorado!

    Like the treatment of the front expect there seems to be a little too much red space up there. Still great work.
