“will demonstrate a mix of technical innovation and ground breaking design”
What, like having no tires to speak of! Those really are ultra low profiles arent they?
Here is yet another "groundbreaking" design, remarkably similare to any other concept car drawing.
No door handles, no tyres and such a steeply raked windscreen that you physically cannot see out of the front!
It will just be more like a 1 series beemer when it finally makes it to the forecourt!
"It will just be more like a 1 series beemer " this seems to be atheme with Lexus: see what car is doing well, then create an ugly knock-off. I'm continually mistaking Lexus for Mercedes, Audi TTs or Beamer X5s when I glance in passing on ther motorway. are these companies reselling their design files?
IT wont look like that
Just imagine that picture without the cool wheels, a lot higher roofline, and a less raked windshield. All of a sudden it looks like every other car on the road, and thats also inevitably what the final car will acutally look like.
The car designer makes something look new and cool that everyone would want, then the stupid marketing people sanitize all traces of style, individualism and desireability right back out. They will probably add a few of the most ugly styling cues of the Prius just so it shouts "Hybrid" too.
