this would be cool looking. grill based on the brz sti concept from a few years ago.

maybe we can get this reddit guy to build one like they did for the 1st gen:
https://www.reddit.com/r/ft86/commen...grill_took_me/

https://www.reddit.com/r/ft86/commen..._grill_and_it/

think it definitely gives it a more cleaner look like the gr86 design!



also gives it more jag f-type vibes. it looks like in the ps that the top has been extended up closer to the headlights giving it that bigger, cleaner, gr86 feeling

I've never been a fan of the GT-R style big tall grill area with greyish bar across the middle. To me, the opposite of clean, too busy and too big. A car with 228hp doesn't need a large grill area, and I'm def not a fan of the current trend of having an enormous grill with half of it blanked off.

I like the 2nd-gen's grill being quite small in vertical dimension. For me, *bigger* grill area doesn't equate with *cleaner*, somewhat the opposite...

Yeah I've always thought so too. Pity they forgot to put a motor in them.

Best comparison so far, I think. BRZ is interesting.

Startup's fine, but the monochromatic look of the actual display once operating leaves a lot to be desired.... compare to say the C8.

The simple monochromatic look will make it age well. The corvette’s display will look dated in 20 years, just like all corvette clusters always have.
