That was hilarious , thanks for posting the link John. I remember really liking the Stinger when it came out on the show circuit. It came out just as I was starting ACCD, remember studying it quite closely. I also quite fond of the Pontiac Sunfire concept that came out shortly after the Stinger, I especially remember the wheels for some reason, it was all the rage to have a dark center back then on sketches !

It's cool to look at those old PR pieces. They really date themselves.

The Stinger was done in California at the Advanced GM Design Studio. It had quite a few innovative features which are now on many small crossovers. Too far ahead of its time.

There is a little more to it. It may be revealed when they release more details in September.

The back looks more aerodynamic than the front but it is silver so all is not lost!

Now that you have been up close and personal with the new 812 what do you think of what Mr Manzoni did this time?

Trying to make that stupid grille relevant by rewriting history - give it up and give us a break Nissan.

It's such an unnatural shape that they couldn't even (bother to ?) match the grille bar elements with the grille opening.

I really want to like the car, but it's so complex it would never make me happy.
It's a very complex design solution, front, side & rear. Too much so for me.
And I LOVE the tricoat yellow

Looks to me like the grill was "stolen" from Lexus.

Thanks for the perspective on the 812SF.

Another big 2018 coupe is the Lexus LC 500. Any thoughts on how that Newport Beach project turned out? Unlike some projects the 2012 show car design seemed to mostly translate into the street car version.

Good but could have been great with a bit more restraint.

Who started the 'floating roof' idea? I see Aston Martin and even Nissan doing this great divide between the lower body and the roof. Is there some style benefit or is it just a trend?
