NPC: Saturn 2-seat roadster arrives in 2006

Should be some interesting new roadsters around in a couple of years - the Saturn, VW Concept R, Pontiac Solstice ...

Suppose you think automotive design should be limited to shoeboxes and egg shapes?

WOW, how did you decipher my statement that quickly???

Obviously i'm not one for the corvett look. But thats my opinion. What i am more interested in is individual styling. IE BMW, which has been a front runner in independent concepts and uniquness, is now a Japanesse looking car maker. Bad? Not if you like that look. But i guess Saturn is a bland car manufacture anyways (and i hate those two center lights that are alway aimed too high and blind me everytime) who is now taking the uniqness of the corvette looks away.

Shoe box... the Scion? thats unique.
Egg shaped... Remind me again whats egg shaped?

Oh c'mon, surely you figured this one out.

shoebox - 914
egg - 911
