Re: Opel Insignia Coupe

Why didn't you just blend the insignia's nose with the (obviously the Insignia) GTC Concept's body?

I wish I had your (or anybody's) photoshopping skills! I've always wanted to take some 70s US cars and see what they'd look like without those huge 5mph bumpers!...

I think the door should be a tad bit longer, but wow, I love that shade on it! :yup:

Very nice, very well done. An Insignia/Aura coupe would be great. Classy.

What's wrong with this Insignia? I think it looks great.

Thanks guys for the comments.

Actually you picked up on a mistake. I left the rear shut-line of the door curving forwards whereas on coupes they curve backwards, making the door skin longer. I'll fix it when I make any further changes to it....

Re: Opel Insignia Coupe

*lovely* coupe, MonaroSS!!!
imho that car is crying to be one
I'd just like
- the rearside window shortened a bit (tho understand the cost wouldn't be worth it)
- everything behind the B 'pillar' shortened slightly (^but^ times 10)

Re: Opel Insignia Coupe (shorter)

I disagree that it should be shortened in any way. I like your first one better. I don't think it'd be worth the cost to shorten the wheelbase.

Re: Opel Insignia Coupe (shorter)

Insignia's rear-headroom-cancelling roofline and too-short-wheelbase just begs to be used as a coupe. The car gives me a BMW 6er vibe after your mods - and the 6er was my original idea how the modern-day Riviera should be designed (the other one would be Audi A5, but with Buick getting an Insignia version as the "Invicta", the Insignoid coupe would make more sense).

You absolutely need to move the B-pillar back.

Re: Opel Insignia Coupe (new front view)

Thanks for the feedback guys. Bravada, I took down the LWB pic below as most people wanted a SWB version and I have now put up a front view.
