    Were they intending for it to look like a boat? The rims look like propellers.

    I would call it a different car before I call it a refresh.

    Looks like a shark. Where are the lasers?

    Keep in mind that concepts are always a bit extreme.

    I'm seeing an average between this, and the current MS.

    (And a couple of you either don't know what's good, or you're just trolling. If you don't like it -- some of us do. Have a little respect for others, like grown-ups would)

    PS - Mattzilla and calisnow, do you have the courage to post some concepts that you like?

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Just not my eye.

    You would buy Tesla for Tesla's sake? I would buy the best car. (and have, for now)

    (PS - A 'concept car' is just a design, for opinion-testing purposes, which often is up for licensing. Although Audi will likely modify and use this one as they own Italdesign)

    But I think this is the general direction the MS should go.

    I could see the new Roadster moving in this direction. They said it would be larger then the original. This is more a Grand Tourismo style, but you could see hints of a NextGen Roadster in there.

    Why? So that the people in the back seat have to sit with their knees up around their ears - that is after they've crawled in there and given themselves a hernia.

    To have less useful cargo space?
    To mess with aero and thus range?
    To turn it into 'not a family vehicle'?
    To not have 5* safety rating in all categories and sub-categories?

    Now see; this kind of childish, recalcitrant attitude which is so prevalent here, is why I've almost stopped posting. You have no idea what you have missed already.

    You have long ago run off almost all of the technical and talented members with your disrespectfulness -- there's been tons going on without you. And the forum is now dessicated and reduced to natter and arguments. Just look at the nature of the content now.

    It is you who create this toxic environment. It is you who soil your own nest. And it is you who cost your own self the enrichment that you could have had, but will never know of.

    Congratulations.

    It looks like when the TV in the bar has the wrong aspect ratio TV so they set it to "stretch".

    Poor man's stretch (ignore the distorted wheels):

    This looks much more "normal" (and "good") to me.

    Maybe it looks better in person. If it's a two seater with a lot of storage that could work.

    That vehicle has no sense of proportion. I find it extremely unappealing.
