This is a very rough concept for the revival of Oldsmobile as a limited production premium luxury brand. Yes, it's unconventional, and yes, I'm probably the only one who thinks this isn't the stupidest idea they've ever heard, but bear with me. The final-generation Olds Aurora was taking the marque in a styling direction that, at least to me, seemed very promising. Sadly, it never went any further, which is why these sketches are here.
Both models are rear-engined, with the cabin placed rather far forward. The roadster features a closed top, while the sedan features an open t-top for the front row and a soundproofed rear cabin with a panoramic moonroof. The pinched body right in front of the rear wheelwells is possible because the driveshaft doesn't have to pass from the front end to the rear wheels. A spoiler across the rear axle provides downforce, while the intakes for the engine are placed above it; the vehicle will have to be shaped in a manner that allows air underneath the back of the body. A potent but compact ethanol rotary engine is housed behind the cabin, between the wheels, while a hybrid electric motor sits near the nose of the vehicle. Because the electric motor does not require a driveshaft, its placement does not have to be in the rear of the vehicle, and the relatively heavy lithium-ion batteries help weigh down the front axle and provide greater stability at high speeds.
Aside from the roughness of the sketches and a number of inconsistencies, please let me know what you think. Also, if any skilled photoshoppers out there wouldn't mind applying these design elements to a real Olds, I would greatly appreciate it.
