The Roadster we know and love compared to the old "Tommy Kaira ZZ2" design:
This angle makes it look a little more "Rubenesque" ;D
The nose, from above, also lends a more voluptuous aura than does the nose of the Tesla:
I wonder how much of the Tesla Roadster's modesty of shape is a result of aerodynamic concerns and how much comes from the Lotus design gene pool?
Maybe the KTM Xbow will follow in the footsteps of the front end style of the Tesla?
Then there is the Toyota "Volta" concept
Roadster and Ferrari Aurea:
Roadster and Ferrari F360:
Vauxhall VX220 and Roadster:
Ascari KZ1 and Roadster
The Tommy Kaira ZZ2 is clearly the best Roadster comparison by these pictures.
It looks bigger and that windshield (screen) is raked back more, but air-intakes aside, it's a ringer.
Did it inspire? I'm not inclined to think Barney Hatt saw one or even had a hand in the "Tommy" design but I am basing this opinion on absolutely nothing but Martin’s description of the design process evolution
