    After seeing the specs for the Velite, I decided that I had a little more accurate idea for the direction of a 2007 GTO. I used current Pontiac styling cues from the Solstice and the G6 and this is what I came up with. The panel between the taillights is supposed to have an anodized, gunmetal finish to it. Also, this panel reminds me of Pontiacs from the '60's.
    Height: 50"
    Ground clearance: 4"
    Length: 190"
    Wheelbase: 114"

    everything looks good, but the front end. It looks as if its in nascar or something. Smooth out the nose more to blend it more into the body.

    your concepts almost always remind me of gen 3 F-bods, not that it's a bad thing just seems to be a theme. this looks really good, kinda like the original GTO concept. more aggressive and strung out than the production car. I ahve to agree that the front looks a bit like a NASCAR auto....and that isnt a good thing....overall good job...

    it looks drawn because it is

    Sorry, but I'm not diggin' it. Too swoopy, too much front end. Maybe something like the current, but a little more "agressive." I'm a fan of the current GTOs, but they could use a little different styling. Also think that 4" is big ground clearance for these cars.

    The profile is very nice and the rear three quarter view looks good as well.
    The front end doesn't look good.
    My suggestions
    Revise your grill
    Change to more modern headlamps. maybe verticle as opposed to your concept
