I'd like to see what a two seater chassis of this car would look and drive like instead of a 2+2.

It'd be lighter, more compact, which means it could be snappier and on the power quicker to make...

I honestly, genuinely, didn't think they could make their pig nosed grille fetish worse but somehow they did. I didn't even think the current ones were that bad but this takes the cake.
