G5 Hatchback *update*

14 posts in this topic

Ok, this is probably a love or hate design, but since the competition was over, when I discovered it, I'll post it here. Even if you hate it, atleast it doesn't look like a cobalt. :thumbsup:

theres definitely some stuff i love about this... especially the big, muscular lines... i dont like... the headlights that are way too big... and the absence of a decklid... if you intended for there to be a decklid... please make it more noticeable... lack of decklids scare me... hatchbacks are evil...

just make the headlights smaller and add a decklid and itll be perfect

also... why is there no difference between the 2 versions?

There was only one difference, the B pillar was more angled, but I didn't like it so I removed it. Call me stupid, but I don't know what you mean by a decklid. You mean like the trunk extending past the rear glass? I didn't intend for that. And the headlights only appear big, but in reality they're smaller than the Cobalts, it's just the different shape that makes them look bigger.

Try using an Astra as a base, then "Americanize" it a bit.

And try another grille as well. The pre-refresh Vibe grille doesn't really work here, and BMW seemed to have claimed ownership on that grille.

Something about the rear quarter panel that whispers "Tiburon" to me, and it has a RWD vibe. Ehh.

Cobalt + Vibe + butter = this creation.

Sorry, I'm not feeling it. I like the color and rims, though..

YES!

The rear quarter says Solstice coupe to me, which is def. a GOOD thing.

Like this type of hatch. Like those headlights, and that type of Pontiac grille (it's distinctive, whereas the new Pontiac grille = BMW ripoff).

The only thing I don't like is the ricey rear view mirrors, and those would never reach production anyways. Build it GM!

I was going to use Firebird mirrors, but I couldn't get them to work, so I just left those crappy ones in. lol
