Going by the lines of the G6 coupe, I came up with this. Yes, I know it kind of looks like the current Grand Am coupe, but that's supposed to be the Malibu's C-pillar adapted to the G6 coupe's roofline. Also, I added an airdam and SS logo.

I like it. It looks sportier than the sedan but it needs more uniqueness to it meaning that it looks no different than a regular malibu coupe.
Know what I'm saying?
ex: the monte ls and the monte ss

Kool car. I wish Chevy would build a Malibu like that and forget the Malibu Max thing. Owell I guess I like any Malibu.
hmmm.... :zap:

aaaaaaanyway, it looks good, but the there is just too much overhang in the rear. Tuck that rear in a bit more, and it would look pretty good.

Too much rear overhang? I traced over an actual Malibu. I might post a modified version later.

A few changes: chopped top, taller wheel openings for lowering, revised fascias (the horizontal bar is molded into the front fascia to give the front a cleaner look...even though you can't see it in this view.), slightly larger spoiler, and (my favorite) the wheelbase has been extended ahead of the firewall for better weight transfer in a RWD version with longitudinal engine placement.

The new one is excellent. I don't see any reason why the malibu can't be sporty.
This is what the malibu should have been.
tell ya the truth, my maxx packs a lot more punch that I orginaly thought. Great passing-power. I would like a 3.9 and 6spd option!

Looks very nice, but it does have a GTOish shape about it
