      Also, truly a low budget reveal here. Feel like Ford and GM did far better with the Bronco and Corvette.

      i really like the whole car. The rectangular grill is a little less exciting, but everything else is clean and fantastic. It looks like they were making a point of going the opposite direction of the Supra; straight lines, no fake vents, legacy shape and cues.

      Wasn't sold on the headlights and grille at first but this angle really does invoke the original:

      Corvettes are like that, or at least they were in the C5/C6 era.

      Japan insisted on this color-it wasn't the first choice and looks a lot better in natural sunlight via darker hues. Alfonso has had his sports car hand slapped after his public attempt to get the revised GT-R approved (oh and not to mention, burning money via the GT-R 50 program) so he had to play nice with Japan design-and these are the result. The profile was set way back when and was always a knockout, but the front graphics were a bit of a 'last minute' revision-and unfortunately it shows. But proportionally this still remains spot on.

      Do you anticipate any changes (cleaning up) to the front graphics in transition from proto to production?

      They're really maximizing the grill area but I wouldn't expect it to need that much airflow, but what do I know?

      Yes! This, all the way. And that seems like an increasingly difficult thing to do.

      Nah I’m out on this. Looks too much like a 350z as opposed to the s30 which they have been trying to tease as the inspiration here. I am however pumped to get my hands on this motor and try to swap it into my s30.

      Except 3 times taller on a featureless nose with cross-eyed headlights.

      Overall I love this car but the straight-on front is just really poorly executed imo.

      I'd buy this over the Toyota depending on how it drives.
