Any Thoughts?

That could be my next new car providing it is not priced too high. Looks good but Mrs does not like the front grill design!!

If it turns out half as good as the GT86, i will be a happy bunny, but sadly i don't think it will :disgust:

It will be interesting to see which prototype features make it through to production. I would imagine that aerodynamics must already be quite close to being as good as it gets on a production vehicle and so I am assuming that outward alteration are pretty much eye candy and improvements lie within other fuel management/efficiency technology from microchip to tyres.

For me the grill looks awful - and would, I suspect, be very pedestrian unfriendly. Altogether too much bling.

The whole thing seems to be creating a sheep in wolf's clothing.

Now for really useful changes I would leave the outside as it is and concentrate on the ergonomics and engineering.

More comfortable seats. Operate the handbrake with your hand not your foot. Integrate the P button into the "gear lever" - after two years it still bugs me that you move a lever to change into Drive and then press a button to change out of Drive.

Improve the handling and mpg.

Oh, and add a nice big turbo to transform the acceleration and hill climbing. That would get me interested. I'm afraid making the front look like Jaws just turns me off.

Having motors connected to all 4 wheels also helps harvest more energy under braking too I would imagine.

But only electric drive on the rear wheels up to 37mph.

It's a start :)
