    The New Hotness My 2009 Chevy Impala SS



    Okay Guys,

    I'm new to this design game but I don't want you all to take it easy on me I want honest opinions. The image is a little sketchy but I think most of you will probably be able to to tell what my concept is.

    Very nice. I see some Camaro in the rear end but not too much. Six taillights. I like the wheel design, though the front end could use a little bit of work. Maybe some larger headlamps to take up some of the empty space (or a slightly smaller grille) and move that center bar down a bit perhaps.

    I think its cool, but side on it looks like a small car, if you just lengthen it then it'll be sweet

    A Chevy Cadillac?

    I'm not saying that as a bad thing. Just that I see some CTS in there. But over all I like it.

    Well to me its not an Impala unless it has three circular taillights. I'm glad I'm not the only one who picked up on this.

    Make the front end longer and the rear end longer then it will look more like an impala.

    Agreed, stretch it out more and it'll be sweet. The taillights and the side vent are nice cues also. Keep up the good work.

    Interesting design, but it looks like the proportions of the bottom left one needs work. Also, the Impala is a pretty big car, but from these pictures it looks like it is the same size as a 3-series.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    The proportions are totally wrong. This looks like a compact car.

    Looks way to much like the CTS for me.

    too small for an Impala unless, as others have said, you make it longer in the middle and longer rear overhangs.

    excellent sketch though!

    here are some ideas:
