    Actually, not bad for a Mazda. Mix of sharp and swoopy on this one.

    NAGARE design language should be fluent among Model S fans.

    Ironically when we saw it Thursday, the guy I was with was like "that looks similar to your model s!". I told him Franz was grabbed from Mazda, but I dunno what, if anything, he had to do with this before he left.

    A not-as-good-rip-off.

    Probably hindered by the heavy metal mechanical machine between the front tires.

    How quaint. :)

    That would be a great side by side!

    Yes, I don't like the front, and the whole package doesn't have the same inner harmony. It looks a bit impressive, but I'd expect to forget it soon.

    I can see the commercial now:
    Drive up "auto doctor shop"... Model S pulls in... "The doctor" says "say ahh!!!"
    Model S pops the "frunk." Doctor inspects with a lighted instrument and says "everything looks fine here!"
    Next, ICEmobile pulls in, same procedure, doctor looks back at the camera, shaking his head, "something is very wrong here!"

    From the front it looks like an Angry Bird.

    The Takeri definitely looks sexier in natural light. Something of that stare reminds me of the Model X.
