    Not feeling it, at least not as a large sedan. The Solstice's look should be left for the Solstice.

    if porsche did a sedan (or 2+2 coupe... your window line is a little off... rear door is very small... quad-coupe perhaps?), that'd be it. with a different nose of course!

    The biggest flaw to me is the lack of any kind of trunk. It looks like it just stops right after the rear glass. I think this design is better suited for a crossover vehicle. I imagine this is about what the REV might look like if it was produced now.

    I guess it would have a fifth door instead of a trunk, but personally i think that makes it a more athletic design. The door openings are off a little just because it would have been really anoying to correct and the crossover feeling is probably from the bottom (horizontal) door openings that's too high up. That said, do you think the design works? The sheetmetal in the front is a lot rounder than the ones on the sides so im jsut wondering if it comes together nicely or not.

    I im going to work some more on this but i really apreciate the comments, thanx.

    Great chop. Although it looks like a frightened turtle, I think splitting the lower grill into two parts like the G6 would take away the mouth-llok, it's almost like this:

    I like it. It's really unique. Your chops are always interesting and this is no exception.

    ha, your definetly right and i thought of it too before cause i tried picturing the entire front as a human face and that beady little grill just didnt fit. When i rework this one im going to angle them both outwards just like on the g6.

    I would just hesitate at a 5th door on a Bonnie. That doesn't mean it couldn't work. It would be a first, no?
