    NON RETRO Firebird

    After seeing all of these fun retro Firebirds on here recently I thought I'd throw up my latest non-retro look.

    I am drooling right now.

    I love the aggressiveness of the front, and the tightness of the rear. Clean design!
    (I don't think that pontiac should go with a retro firebird.)

    I agree, this is what the next Firebird should be too contrast from the retro cued Camaro. A front end shot would be awesome if you have one.

    Sorry, I'm just not liking it. (which is unusual for one of TorRed's designs) It looks too flat; one would need to lie down just to sit in it.

    Re: NON RETRO Firebird

    wow it has some cues from the eclipse but nice to see someone make a chop that isnt based on the new camaro. good job dude. this is wut the firebird should look like a real sports car no dissrespect to the camaro but that concept looks like a hotrod from chip foose and doesnt look like somthin to be drivven around or can be upgraded cosmetically like the stang. e mail it to the guy at gm.

    Wow, this is an insane design. Very supercar-ish. Great work Torred! Front end reminds me of an Elise.

    i like how the pontiac split-grile isn't really a grille, but an introduction to the hood scoops.
