HMmm.... must be on the S80/MKS/Taurus/Sable global platform....
I've always wondered if Mazda was ever going to resurrect the 929....

What's with the Citroen-ish rear fastback design?

So they combined styling cues of an Audi R8 front with the love child rear of a Porsche Panamera mated with a Toyota Prius? Mazda has been making some sharp looking cars lately but this is a huge step in the wrong direction, though not at all unexpected. The jump between the modern car and the super sleek electric car of the future is going to be filled with dozens of ugly evolutionary dead ends.

Not bad looking, but the front doesn't really flow that well with the rear of the car to me. I've really liked most of the recent Mazda designs and this is probably my least favorite.

Why would I want that big of a sedan with so little rear headroom? The front end sucks too. (I generally like Mazda styling.) I hope the "rendering" is way off.

Gosh, I hope this is just an AutoBild-style hoax - as much as I'd like the 929/Sentia/Millenia to make a return, this would simply make Ford's product planning worse than GM's in mid-nineties.

I think the design of the Mazda9 is ok. It needs some tweaking done to the design. maybe a small rear deck along w/a rise in the beltline alongside the rear side window & the elimation of the small rearest side window. Possibly a redesigned front fascia as well.

Basically, you want it to be a wholly different vehicle.

BTW, I am relieved, this is just an imaginary work from CWW.

If this was directed at me then my answer is "no", just a little tweaking to the design is all that is needed. So I'm not asking for much.:) Its already a whole different vehicle from the Ford models.:)
