    There is a war going on, forcing two camps to the extremes:
    - Tesla: no grill!
    - ICE manufacturers: bigger and bigger grills. IMHO ... I cannot look at a recent Toyota/Lexus anymore without an allergic reaction. When does it stop?

    You may not like the front end of the X or 3 ... but if we are forced to these extremes, I think we know which is on the side of future.

    Reminds me of Cylons from Battlestar Galactica. Kinda bizarre.

    Grills are not needed! We dont need to cling onto old design cues just so people feel better about owning something different.

    Porsche front ends are generally a whole lot better looking today than most of them were 30 years ago... But I still don't like them. And, the Model ☰ looks like one of the better Porsche front ends. Luckily, the rest of the car saves it. But, that doesn't mean I wouldn't have preferred Tesla Motors stole one of the older Acura or Honda front ends (that were stolen from Ferrari) instead.
