I've always thought that the Gruppe B Studie car was a more successful design than the production car. I think that the road version is a little "clunky" in comparison (no offense Wayne), just look at the headlight surrounds. I guess this shouldn't be surprising as the show cars don't have the same regulatory design constraints that the production cars end up with.

The original Boxster concept car is another good example of a beautiful idea that was disappointingly watered down and bloated by the time it reached production.
