    Whenever I look at any pics of the Grand Prix, I feel that the front fascia is just TOO damn bold. So I couldn't help but give this car a new look. So I gave it a look simular to the G6 while keeping some GP traits. I hope you all like it

    well done. perfect proportions, and i agree that the toned-down front looks better. kinda GX/P-ish. what i noticed last night (stuck in traffic behind a GP) was that the rearend is very odd. the way the trunk bulges to meet with the tailights looks kinda goofy. feel like doing a rear 3/4 view?!?

    Sure, If you want a rear view, I'll give you one. I might not have it ready to post until Sunday though. Would you also like an interior to with it too??

    MUCH, MUCH better.

    Lutz should have hired you. Instead they got an Alvin the Chipmunk grille.

    At least the G6 got the proportions right for the most part.

    ah, a designer at my beck and call&#33; s&#39;up to you dude... whatever you feel like drawing&#33; if you&#39;re bored and looking for ideas, perhaps you could turn your pencil loose on the aztek. ha&#33; next design contest... we&#39;ll call it "the swan 2: mission aztek un-uglify&#33;"

    Nice drawing...you definitely should work for GM, they could learn a lot. Hey, I would love to see a rear 3/4 and interior views, if you&#39;re up to it.

    MMMM that looks a lot better. The current GP is nice but there is always that feeling that something just needs to be tweaked on the fascia, this looks good.

    Unfortunately, the current Fascia is all LUTZ himself... he isn&#39;t the saviour that everyone makes him out to be. That being said, the GP is selling VERY well... and althought the design could be more refined - I still like it better than the Maxima or Altima.

    Impressive work. It looks awesome. I&#39;d like to see the GP look like that.
