      We know. It's already been acknowledged. Read the thread. That doesn't mean that we can't comment on it.

      Looks pretty good for an unofficial render. Proportions are a little off, though. The nose is too big for the rest of the body.

      The demise of the 'Speed3 for a while seems to be carrying some weight to the rumors. There is also rumor of the next-gen 6 coming in Mazdaspeed guise eventually, but no word on powerplants yet. I've heard TT v6 diesel, but let's be realistic...

      Oh, yes. That is beautiful. It reminds me of the aggressive face of the old Toyotas from the 70's and 80's for some reason. Upright, purposeful, aggressive without being over the top.

      Bring me this with a Skyactiv-D hybrid please.

      buddy I did read the thread.........

      STFU

      I thought finding the exact photo they used to hack it together with was worth noting.
      Now I know why you have 14k posts. blah blah blah blah blah

      As I was saying for those of you who have interests in digital art and or photoshopping skills, you may note the C&D rendering appears to be generated using this image of the newly redesigned mazda6.

      It appears they used a little squashy, a little stretchy, employed some cut and paste, some nudge and smudge, and maybe a wee bit of feathered lasso selection.

      Now I will STFU and this thread. Apologies for intruding on your conversation.
      I'll take my 1K post count and crawl back under my rock.

      Hey, how about some more rolley-eyes?!?!? I don't think you used enough.

      I thought finding the exact photo they used to hack it together with was worth noting.
      But that's not what you said in your post. Instead, you decided to play the Dick Card. You got called out for it and now you're trying to cover with some stupid jibber jabber about your Photoshop knowledge. Weak.

      No one cares about your post count or mine. At least I don't. It had been mentioned several times that this was an unofficial render. If you hadn't read the thread, that would have been better. But since you claim that you did, and still felt the need to inform everyone once again about the fact along with the derisive " ", made you come across like a tool.

      That's for you to own, not me. But hey, let me you back and we'll pretend like it's all good.

      I know this is just a rendering or a p-shop, but I hope the final thing looks like this because that looks really, really good.

      Interesting. I didn't realize that the new grill is a throwback.

      Kind of want. Probably better than smiley face at least. Hatch looks quite cut down though.

      Looks curvy enough to be a new compact Infiniti.

      This was a Kodo 3 rendering that came from Mazda, supposedly. Lots of similarities. Some differences.

      I'm sorry, but that is pure genius in its combination of simplicity, aggression, elegance, and flair.

      Infiniti is exactly what I thought as well looking at the camo'd car.

      I just hope the sides and rear are closer to the current 3 than that concept. The C&D rendering is very attractive. Just lose the ribs in the grille.
