Intrepidation    839

I like the rear treatment but the low beltline and tall greenhouse make it look like an economy car. Those random lines on the lower door sills are...weird.

actually the "random" line is inspired by the buick invicta teaser:

the little weird one at the bottom is supposed to be the door panel gap and not a line.

I see teh inspiration and that doesn't bother me, but the lines at the bottoms don't work well ,with each other and make it feel unnecessarily busy.

Lose the Bangle ass, it's time has come and gone IMO, it's almost cliche at this point.

Burns: Your drawing reminds me very much of the Buick Signia Concept. Of course, that was a "wagon/SUV," but they both seem "chunky" ( or should the word be "substantial"? ) and the side of the Signia was, as I recall, somewhat sculpted.

As much as I want to see Riviera, I have to agree with Nick. I see more Z4. The character line imitating a sweepspear should be dominate. In your drawing, it's lost in what Bangle calls "flame surfacing."

I think it's the bottom line that reminds us of the Z4, not just the sweepspear. The way it moves up as it moves forward into the front fender. I usually like that line myself.

Yes, it's a misshapen Z4 sedan. I like certain aspects of it, but the proportions and integration are off. Also, the lower half of the side is unnecessarily random. It doesn't work at all. Simplify the lower sides, raise, smooth, and elongate the beltline, add more rear overhang in addition to stretching the greenhouse back a bit. That should take care of everything. I actually like the rear treatment, though, it needs to be thought out better, it doesn't quite mesh well as a whole.
