I like what I'm seeing and would like to see some Impala design cues...any era..would be good. I really like the sharp edges...very contemporary!
for just a basic outline, i think that this impala will come out pretty dang nice. but my question is will it be futuristic?
This is an interesting concept. If you actually drew it to a set of dimensions for a production car, I'm confident that it would look modern, but with a great bit of the feel of the '65 to '68 Impalas.

Looks like a retro early 60s Impala to me, especially with those tailights.
it would look better as a coupe.

I like it, but ditch the photoshop wheels. Consider doing a traceover so you get a uniform render.
The daringly retro touch is in the corners of the car. In the '60s, you'll notice many GM cars had a 'concave' grille as the fenders jutted out past the plane of the grille, and the rear fenders flowed past the plane of the trunk (think '67 Chevelle - Buick Riviera).
Now pretty much every car has a 'convex' front fascia due to aero concerns. I say if it sells cars, to hell with aerodynamics.
Interesting. I was going to say Cadillac (Cien, XLR).Originally Posted by darndot
I like it a lot. I agree that the proportions are right for a coupe, so I think if you can get some older-generation design cues on it (3 taillights is a good start), it'll make a great Impala.
I'm looking forward to seeing your treatment of the apparently concave front.
