I know they won't be, but I hope those tails are not final. I am loving the general shape though. My only other wish is that the doors be transparent like the prototype. Then i would drive one without pants..

Wow. Love the overall shape. Pointy nose reminds me of an M1 or an old 8 series.

I'm not a fan of the angular bumper and weird spoiler. Good thing they probably won't be in the production version.


EDIT: LD330XI beat me to it.

i'm sure the tails will be fit above those round lights under each spoiler... you can tell by the body lines

if you look at most previous concept/prototypes, the tail lights are completely different, round, bulgy, etc... not to mention, the tail lights for this car probably aren't even made yet. those are put on for safety regulations only, if i had to guess

It reminds me of an old Toyota MR2 from the side and a Porsche from the rear.

It looks good though.

I wonder how many cup holders it will have.

I like the rear fins, hope this car makes it to production without too many tone-downs.
