    Although a teaser, what is visible and the suggested form is brilliant. Congratulations and looking forward to your baby's debut.

    Thank you for your input... Though I thought it would have a bigger impact from you guys!!!

    Remember that this is actually a car to be built!! I think the presentation is scheduled for middle July, hopefully.

    When I have updates, and if I can post them, I will show them to you!

    Regards from Portugal,
    Ernesto Freitas

    Ernesto, you say this is a car that will be built. Does this mean that your design is the new Ferrari or something else??

    back after 5 months to check the final Dino design, and If somebody had built a scale model....and find nothing ???,

    I remember reading, that quite a few had, apart from myself, final designs ready to be shown here....what happened to all the other designers ??

    Some of them became real commercial projects and may hit the road some day in different forms. ;)

    Ok.. here it is... finally!

    Sorry for all the time it was needed to get to this stage, but now is done!

    Of course it's "only" the full scale model, but it already seems to be alive!

    Unfortunatly, my digital camera was broken a few minutes before I need it, so I only took a few pics from my (poor) mobile phone...
    Anyway, I will post a few poor ones now, and a few with better quality later on, ok?

    Hope you like it!

    comments, please! :)

    Dear Ernesto,

    with great pleasure I pay my respect to the design of your "Dino".
    I like the shape very much. May be the back design of the diffusor area deserves a bit of "shrinking".

    I hope and I am confident from what I saw that your project will finally find its entrance to the market.

    Wow.
    Only a few comments.
    The overall volume proportions are EXCELLENT. :)
    I LOVE the windshield
    I love the front fender profile
    The tire relationship to the fenders gives a terrific 'stance'
    I might have used a just slightly larger, wider headlight unit, as an example the Alfa 8C or 599, more volume proportionate to and more filling of the fender bulges.
    I would have preferred the exhaust to be a horizontal element rather than a vertical
    The dark thing that sticks out under the nose seems to break the otherwise perfect body lines.
    The rear scoop integration is very good
    I like the way the lower scoops suggest a forward rake
    FINALLY - someone has designed a modern rear engine car where the rear is not overly fat (e.g. 360, 430). We all like a nice trim and tight rear end.

    Now the most important comment:
    I want one. Where do I put down my deposit?
    Wow.

    Simply brilliant work. Bravo.

    And what does the badge on the front say? :)

    Thank you very much for your kind words.

    The model is going to be built in Portugal, to be sold all over the world... but not many units will be made, I'm affraid...

    I'm very glad I started this thread a long time ago.
    It was a shame that there has been a period of silence... until now!
    This spin-off is more than I could ever imagine!

    Let us all be inspired by Ernesto's succes and restart contributing!
    Who know what it will lead to. ;)
