Rendered Speculation: Mazda6 coupe, convertible

Mazda's 6 is having a tough time finding love in its home market where it goes by the Atenza moniker. 7Tune is reporting that Mazda's going to flip the script and introduce three new variants of the Atenza; a coupe, a convertible, and a high performance version called the Mazdaspeed Atenza for JDM consumption. Mazda looked to the holy-grail BMW 3 series for inspiration, though that car is rear-wheel-drive, and hopes to achieve the same build quality with its Atenza line.

The vehicles in 7Tunes renderings are more conservatively styled than the current 3-Series, though that's hardly a bad thing. We think the renderings are easy on the eyes, with clear RX-8 influences, though all suffer from a basket-handle spoiler tacked on to the trunklid. It's tough to imagine the Mazdaspeed Atenza amounting to anything other than a tasty snack for the monstrous M3, though we're sure the Mazda will comport itself sportily. If any of this conjecture rings true, it's tough to go wrong benchmarking the icon of the segment.

They look pretty hott! If Mazda would produce a Convertible/Coupe then bring them to the States, Pontiac would need to hurry up with the next-gen G6 Hardtop Convertible GT and G6 GXP Coupe!

I guess I'm missing something. Seems pretty standard from a variety of perspectives. It also seems like lots of people like the Mazda6, until it comes time to actually buying one. I imagine the coupe/convertible version would create similar amounts of buzz in the market.

Mazda is going to be known in the US for snowflake wheels they put them on every model.
