I'm actually a bit disappointed to be honest. These pictures don't look like the other renderings but hopefully real life and other pics will prove us wrong.

Yeah, but man, they had such an awesome canvas to work on, it just seems like this is so "not" what I'd expected!

I hope either it looks a hell of a lot better in person, or this is just not a "real" picture. :(

Major disappointment, besides the gull wing (doors), I like nothing. :td:

Man, I'm just not loving that at all. Maybe in something other than white, but crap, it's not in SLR class by any measure! :(

I didn't even think that iut was meant to be in the SLR class of price when i looked at it. I looked at it and I thought 25-35k. I looks like a cheap little car.

I think it looks modest, goes under the radar if you take it in a classy colour like black. I really would love to have one someday.

The headlights look like they stole them from a Cadillac CTS.
No they don't, not to me anyway. Too rounded and lens in the wrong place. Here's a picture I took of my CTS headlights. I have optional Bi-Xenon with light bars.

Actually the rear does remind me of the Acura CL from the early 90's, but squished a bit.

It looks like they tried to update the original model but failed misserably. It's retro without being nice. Just the cue's not done well.

I will get to see one up close come September!
