    It was a compliment. You didn't just move the rearaxle like some one else might do. You actually moved the whole wheelbase.

    exactly, its a good idea, could use some air dams and the such though on a super car lambo competitor.

    well maybe the nsx looks to much like a mid-engined vette .

    i was thinking about it, and the only place an intake seemed to fit was on teh top of the rear fender hump (so it's horizontal; perpendicular to the rear window).

    ok, i looked into that a bit more, and they would really only help -significantly- if this thing had turbo/super that required the extra intakes.

    Nice, very well done, though there is a bit too much rear overhang.

    Re: a new kind of Corvette

    Camaroman,

    I am so liking this concept. And, after comments made was curious if you thought perhaps of softening the severe rear edge by incorporating a more convex body line to the rear?


    Nevertheless...It's flawless and I am a big fan!
