I kinda like it. With a some work on the front and rear end it could look great. I like the interior (maybe no color accent though) and the low curb weight with RWD.
130hp seems a bit low, especially since torque will probably also be low. Would prefer ~150hp NA or maybe an option for 170-180hp with FI.

This car's front end looks like a cartoon character. It reminds me of Kirby

I like it. Interior looks remarkably production ready.

I could see a business case for it in the US, if they can get the MSRP down to around 20K.

One interesting note is that Jalopnik/C&D both have the concept's specs at 157 inches long, 130HP and 2160 lbs, which is almost identical to the size/power/weight of the 1.8L NA Miata. If they can get the chassis dynamics right, it'll probably be a blast to drive.

Car has split personalities. The front end is just plain pissed off, while the rear is surprised as all hell.

IDK about you guys but I'm digging the front and rear. Overall, not bad at all! Can't wait to see specs!

top looks like cr@p lol. I like it unlike many of my peers here, but it still seems to lack something....

Kinda looks like a piece of bread too.




$18k price tag would sell a lot.... a whole lot! RWD!

Ugly? To each their own.

I saw the new ND Miata on the streets for the first time yesterday. Cemented my decision that the Miata (styling-wise) is not a car for me.

If this car is on the market in Canada when my wife replaces her car I can almost guarantee she would want it.
