VOLTEC-Based Sports Car To Continue the Buick Revolution :)
Updated Front View


What makes this car a Techno-Showcase is its dramatic styling and VOLTEC powertrain.
Like always, please let me know what you think! :)

I am thinking "Wildcat" or how about "Eel"!!?? :D
As a Buick Voltec sedan would be "Electra".

Thanks for all the great comments! About calling it riviera: I certainly took some design inspiration from the riviera concept, so I suppose that would work. I liked the rear view better too. I am going to make some quick changes to the front view and post those in the next couple days. Keep those comments coming, I always appreciate the feedback!

Naming a hybrid Buick "Electra" is about as juvenile as VW's tagline "the car".
If you think a Voltec Buick model named "Electra" isn't a no-brainer, Then I don't know which planet you came from. :)

I don't like the front grill, something more sporty I think would be nicer, this car has supercar proportions and the back end really really compliments that.

I revised the front end again. This is my favorite version, but let me know what you think.

I reckon you could extend the bumper and lights etc into the wheel arch more, the back has a really nice stance, but the front looks a bit pinched kinda like an open wheeler, maybe go wider at the front without moving the wheels so it fills the face out more, Audi R8 Lexus LFA Nissan GT-R style. But still keep the bulges over the wheels just stretch the front out as the lights start.

Sorry about the explanation, I can see it in my head, and totally understand how front ends can be a prick.

I am being pedantic though, it does look very cool.
